There doesn’t have to be a silver lining in all things. But the blessing is that there’s one anyway–if you look for it. That doesn’t mean we have to be thankful for all challenges and tragedies. But we can be thankful for the learning, for the response, for the deep breath when we realize we are still here and we can move forward positively or negatively. It’s our choice. I choose to be optimistic. I choose to make something good out of every experience I can.
