This past week has been rough for me, but there are some really wonderful things that kept my spirits up.
Of course, it's Christmastime, and you can't really be too sad when there's so much cheer around. And if you're feeling really down, donate time, money or in my case, socks and blankets, to those who don't have as much as you do. It helps give some perspective.
Another thing that keeps me sane? One word - kids. From the gummy, two-toothed smile of my little V or the big bear hugs from my two little nephews, they always make me forget about what was bothering me.

Each one on their own is great, but put them together, and the combo just can't be beat. I'm talking about being active with friends. Endorphins + catching up? Yes, please!
Going hand-in-hand with spending time with my urban family is spending time with my blood family. My parents and grandparents are the only family I have here in the desert, but I never want for family togetherness. My dad can fix anything and my mom always helps me put things into perspective.
What helps get you through the rough spots?
