Last week was a terrible week. There is no reason to try to sugar coat it. It started bad and got worse. By mid-week as a Rochesterian, and specifically an East Rochester resident, it was just sad. Unless you have no soul, there was no way to avoid being effected by the people, fire trucks, police, media, and general feeling of gloom that unwelcomingly invaded our little village. There are still blue porch lights on that have not been turned off since day 1. Even the cashiers lights at the ER Wegmans are blue.
If there are any guarantees in life, it’s that there will be bad days. That’ll happen (…that will happen…), and there is nothing we can do about it except to keep on moving forward. So, since I love compilations, here’s a compilation of the little things that made me smile and kept me going throughout the week.
And just like that the weekend rolled back around, and the world got a little brighter. Marching back into the waiting arms of what sometimes feels like an army of friends will always make me happy. And feeling like, for whatever reason, they need me there as much as I need them, that will always make me happy too.
And then the Bills won and all of Western NY collectively had a great day!!
