Cultivate le petit bonheur (the little happiness) until courage returns.<br /> Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.   <br />Ardis Whitman<br />
