Never become discouraged
We had our housewarming party, all the while going through a family crisis which luckily no one noticed we were stressed about. And even though it went really well, I think I'm somewhat cured of my party-throwing fever.
Sometimes it feels like evil/pain/human failure gets the upper hand. Especially in the wake of the Paris tragedy and Pope Francis's repeated calls to prayer for the atrocities in the Middle East. But it's simply not true. (have to keep reminding myself)
