It’s never difficult to find someone worse off than ourselves, particularly if you ever visit a hospital. From time to time it does us good to get reminders of how well off we really are.
Sometimes our ailments and disabilities can seriously hamper what we have grown to accept as our normal lifestyle.
Personal courage and the support of family and friends can go a long way to our accepting and overcoming our problems.
It seems the advice so often given in times of trial is to keep smiling. But smiling can be a shallow exercise, with little or no medicinal effect, unless others return that smile.
If our smiles can be converted to laughs when all around us is doom and gloom, then we can claim we are well on the road to recovery.
