Many years ago when I was going through a rough patch, a friend once told me, "Karen, it always works out in the end. If it's not working out, it's not the end yet." I've always loved this bit of comfort, and I've thought about it a lot since, anytime I'm facing challenges.
Yesterday, Marcus, Alex and I went to visit some friends at a beachhouse in Galveston. It was a great day. We didn't really do much other than sit and talk, but every once in a while I'd walk out onto the balcony and take a photograph. And by the end of the day, I realized I'd captured this little bit of wisdom visually over the course of the 10 hours we were there.
So, hang in there, friends. It always works out in the end.
