Silver Linings, Pt. 2
I believe in God, but I don't believe God uses platitudes during times of tragedy and sadness. He doesn't say, "Buck up, buddy! Things are gonna be okay; just get up, brush yourself off, and work through this!" He also doesn't say, "Hey! Be grateful! At least you're not dead!" or something equally as ridiculous. Instead, he sits down and cries with you for a while.

Thing I'm thankful for: mint brownies
