My emotions have been all over the place for months but have never been close to a 180 degree difference over the course of a day.
Even when doing "alright," I've just been doing "OK" and not overly hopeful.
This morning, on the way home from a college reunion, I stopped by a place that Tori and I had previously visited and was overwhelmed with sadness.
It persisted for hours after I left.
But earlier this evening I had a "Clarence, please, please...I wanna live again, I wanna live again!" moment (you know...Jimmy Stewart's famous line from the classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life").
I've been feeling that way now for a few hours.
I can't explain why but I'm going with it.
Truthfully, it's the first time in over 11 months that I've felt at all hopeful about the future.
Even if the feeling wanes a bit it's nice to know it can still be there.
