These are tough times. Everywhere I go around the country it is the same conversation whether from a clerk in a store, some casual conversation that I overhear, or the conversation on a daily basis between friends and family.
Money and weather... that's about how far the conversation extends, even though we know we need more than that to be happy. Everyone who has made those comments has a roof over their heads and something to eat.It isn't THAT bad- yet love, friendship, health don't get the first chance at sharing their condition with others... usually not.
I think that if we start to share what we really care about in our HEARTS the most... the mentality about many, many things... will change.
