A former businessman in Texas named Fred Smith was fond of saying, "Don't lose the good in a bad situation."

I've taken these words to heart.

July 2019 to July 2020 was the most difficult time Cetelia and I have had in our nearly 21 year marriage.

Long, painful days produced confusing emotions, careful speaking, and lots of second-guessing.

Although it was a bad situation, I heard Fred encouraging me not to lose the good.

This allowed me to hang on, and look at the prospect of things getting better.

The peace, transformed conversation, and friendship that has emerged from those dark 12 months was worth the pain.

If you're in a bad situation, don't lose the good.

It's there.
