happiness through difficult times

Dear friends, I had the opportunity today to spend a little one on one time with one of my work friends whose uncle is suffering kidney failure, whose niece (toddler daughter of aforementioned uncle) has recently been diagnosed with Dravet’s syndrome after 12+ months of daily epileptic fits and whose own mum may donate a kidney for her brother (uncle).  It’s hard to relate as our family has not been through anything close.  My husband felt similar today as a young teenager going through cancer treatment was in one of his classes today.

But this evening I came across this quote from Harold B. Lee (1899 – 1973) which I sent to my friend, hoping that hope will be found and love felt.

Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you but on what happens inside of you; it is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life.
