Bad and Worst are Good Again

Tonight I am thankful for my husband. We got some really unhappy news tonight, and I told him with tears running down my cheeks how I just didn't know how to deal with it on top of all the other things we're struggling with. So he looks at me with a goofy smile and says, "You can just do what I do. When another really bad thing happens, I just say, 'Well this really sucks but it's still not as bad as ____.' So sometimes we can be grateful for the worst trial happening to us cause when a new bad thing happens that worst trial makes the new thing not look so bad."
So I actually laughed out loud. And then I felt much better. I'm really not sure if he's a genius or going insane...all I know is if that's insanity it's making me smile and I wanna be wherever he is.

Ohh! I love this post. I feel the same way about my husband, too :) I am so glad we get to be with our best friends forever :) I hope you are doing okay, and I am sorry things aren't going very well :(

We try to take things this way too...although ours is a little different--one time Darrin had to share a hotel room w/ a collegue that was rather large and hairy ...and the guy came out of the bathroom and was walking around in his tidy-whiteys...so now when things get really bad we say, "It could be worse--we could have _____ walking around in his undies too." Which I know probably sounds totally ridiculous and not funny, but somehow, it helps.

Love you! I hope things start looking up soon!!

Awh, man, I'm sorry things stink right now. But if anyone could make a funny comment or face and make you feel better, it would be that goofy, tall guy that lives with you.
