How do you get through those less than savory days? Those days when the whole world seems set against you? Those days that stretch into weeks and even sometimes, months?

For some it’s purely faith, for others it’s a combination of faith and something tangible. Having that tangible thing, whatever it may be, can make all the difference. Be it an animal, a child, a spouse, or something altogether different… We all need that something to help us through those times.

For me? Sometimes it’s just seeing that smile on my little guys face. Sometimes it’s my cat giving me his adorable purr and rub. Sometimes it’s just a few nice words from a stranger. Sometimes it’s reading just the right words in a book. Whatever it is, it makes it so much easier.

What gets you through your tough times?
