Whenever anybody says things can't get any worse, they usually do. No matter how bad something is, there is always a good chance it will get worse. Experience may not be my best teacher, but sometimes it's the only teacher on duty.

By Friday, she is soaring high because her week has gotten better and
better. Whereas, by Friday, I am dragging under a heavy load of things 
that has gotten worse for me. 

Even when she has a bad week she cheerfully says, "Next week will be
better, I'm sure." 

When I have a bad week I drearily say, "Next week it will surely get
worse." And it usually does. 

She keeps telling me that if I just would entertain good and positive
thoughts I would have happy things happen to me. She might be right. 
But some people do not deserve being happy and I think I am one of 
those people. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

I did find my lost set of keys. Ironically, they were exactly where I
left them. On my dresser. Of course, I have not told my wife I found 
them. Let's just keep this as our little secret. 

Thinking on these things, I concluded, no life is all bad, and no life
is all good. It is amazing how life is a mixture of these two things. 
Jesus said, "That ye may be the children of your Father which is in 
heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and 
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. (Matthew 5:45 KJV). 

In reality, no day is any worse than any other day.
