Horn, Hannabert, and I have had a rough couple of weeks. Compared to the other parties involved, we are having a much easier time.
I am trying to spend 2012 drinking from the 1/2 full glass rather than the "barely covering the bottom of the glass" glass. This resolve has already been tested twice in rather significant ways.
While we will have our lives momentarily disrupted, our counterparts are having their lives reworked entirely. Our friends have asked if we are angry or upset and both Horn and I feel that these inconviences are minor in comparisons. Perhaps these are the motivating factors we need to ignite fires of changes in our lives...
As we look forward with optimism, we also keep the other families in our prayers that they may have their lives healed.
