How To Turn A Bad Day Into A Great Day


Roses are red and violets are blue, this message is dedicated especially to you!

There will be times in life where there is nothing but gloom and doom. Nothing but storms and rain everywhere you look...but don’t despair. There is beauty in the rain.

We are all going to have rainy days. We will all have difficult days. I had one in 2003, when my brother died twenty-five days after my mother. Then, my father-in-law died eight hours after my brother.

Yet, I was blessed by a call from a friend of my mother's who let me know that “They Got In!” That message went on to become one of my most popular messages for dealing with the loss of a loved one.

I wrote it for Chicken Soup For The Christian Soul, and it went on to become one of the “most popular stories of all time” for the Chicken Soup series.

So, even though you might be going through a tough time, and even though the sun looks like it will never shine again…don’t give up! The sun will shine again! Remember, your best is yet to come!
