Take for instance the MRI I had scheduled for Tuesday. The orders from my doctor (and good friend) weren't right when I got there.
The results were a day late in getting back to my doctor (my good friend).

But today? Today it's Friday!
Today, as a representative of the guild I belong to, I will help someone who is fighting her way out of addiction and trying to grab a last chance at new life. My very small problems will be put into perspective.
Today is the beginning of my weekend (Friday's off, ya'll). Let's hear it for the weekend!
Today is going to be a better day!
