It's not always sunny...

The past two days have been an example of how life can just be really gloomy. Without going into a huge speal with all the juciy details, I will just say enough to get it out of my brain so I don't explode into an ocean of tears. 

Basically, politics suck. Corruption permeates everywhere, even places you thought were safe. Unfortunately this corruption hurts everyone involved, including my father. He got caught up in a huge mess that is affecting the future of his political career and the essentially the future of our family. People he thought he could trust have turned their backs on him and even spoken publicly against him. An honest man who loves to serve his people has been made to look like a crook. This has resulted in a lawsuit and being fired from his job. People are calling for his resignation from the city council and we can only guess how this will affect his campaign for state assembly. Yet despite all this, my father still remains optimistic. He still has faith in humanity which is more than I can say for myself right now.

Our family and friends have been so supportive. There has been an outpouring of love and kindness which has been overwhelmingly wonderful. Our faith is strong, which is all you have left when everything else falls apart.  Trials strengthen us and my dad is confident that he will come out of this stronger than ever.  

In the end, this has just reaffirmed to me that life may not always be sunny, but it is never impossible to find sunshine. Prayer, beautiful friends,running and music are just a few of the rays of sunshine that have helped me get through the past few days. Thanks, you know who you are. :)

p.s. I promise my posts wont be depressing anymore :)


  1. Alison, I'm sorry that totally stinks. There is nothing I can say except that stinks!!!! I'm going to pray for your family. I hope everything works out okay. It's hard in this economy where everyone is losing their jobs, you'd think that a job in politics would be safe. GRRRRR.

  2. if this is you depressed, you are the happiest emo kid I know. Your faith= amazing.


  3. You are such an example to me... I am keeping you all in my prayers. He will always take care of us. Thanks for everything. seriously. :)Much love. -Sara
