Only when it's dark enough.

Lately I've been reminded of the silver lining. Wise words from all over remind me that even when life doesn't seem shiny and wonderful...dammit, it is.

Like Dolly Parton (wisest woman ever, maybe) in "Steel Magnolias":

"Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion"

Dolly also said, "It costs a lot to look this cheap"

Speak it, sister.

And this, which I read in a book this morning. A Persian proverb, evidently:

"Don't be afraid of the darkness. Only when it is dark enough can you see the stars."

I just got done reading a book (for the third time) called I Became A Christian And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt. Excellent book if you ever get the chance to read it but I have a point I it it says "God thrusts you into the darkness so that you can bring it light". This post really brought that back to me.
