"Friend, Sometimes we have bad days so that our friends can be there for us.Otherwise how would we know we had true friends ? That's how i figure I've had a few bad days ... to remember that you are my best friend.... " ~ David Paul Krug
Sometimes we have bad days. John, over on Tynan.com says we are going to have 1000 bad days in our lives. Maybe so. Maybe not. I don't know why sometimes we have bad days. But then a smile came over my face as I realized the joy that was overwhelming me. I was having a bad day and my friend was cheering me up.
And then I realized the purpose of bad days. The purpose of bad days are to invite those we love into our souls. To show us how we need one another. To push us closer to the people that matter. To those who share our journey. To those who are characters in our stories. To those who pick us up when we can no longer walk. To those whose names are written on our hearts forever. That's the purpose of bad days.
Sometimes we have to experience hell, so that we can escape into the arms of heaven's gifts to us.
