No one writes about this subject better than Donald Sensing. "Dealing with" may be a bad way to put it,but plain truth is often harsh. You deal with it,one day at a time. One minute you're realizing your blessings,the next you wonder WTF just happened. That's life. If you can keep your sense of humor about it,you're truly blessed. The exchange above between Ghost and Terry is a perfect example.
