The sun was reflecting off of the lake as I sat in the shade on the beach. The little kids were playing happily in the water. We love going to this family vacation house deep in the Adirondack mountains.
I have to admit that this hashtag gives me mixed emotions. When I see people wearing it on t-shirts I sometimes want to say, “sure you feel blessed, everything is going exactly how YOU want it to!”
As I pressed my face against the cold glass, I looked out at the half-melted snow in the back yard. My eyes fell on the dry dead grass peeking through the snowy patches. Tears were streaming, sobs were billowing out from deep inside.
