“The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday, that’s guaranteed… But guess what, Sunday is my favorite day again.” – Silver Linings Playbook
OK, obviously the prompt word is “Silver Lining” but the theme for this month is gratitude. If I could warn everyone about the downside of silver linings I would but then I think maybe it would be different for them.

Simple, if the other shoe never dropped I would never find a strength I didn’t know about or brush off my old skills of dealing with randomness thrown at me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not strong all the time, not even a quarter of the time but I deal with ‘it’ in my own way.
