But my daughter started thinking of a song they sang in their Kids in the Park production of Pinocchio two years ago. The song is actually from Seussical the Musical and it's called "How Lucky You Are"
And the verse we sang to each other (and then put the CD in so we could hear the whole song)
Why decry a cloudy sky
An empty purse
A crazy universe?
My philosophy is simply
Things could be worse.
Here's a clip of the song from a school production:
So. Bad news. But, there is a lot of good in our lives and I'm going to make sure I focus on that. We have great kids, a great extended family, we have a strong marriage and a strong faith. We wish things could be easier sometimes - but - hey "things could be worse".
