Years ago Pepper Rodgers was the head football coach at UCLA. One year he was in the middle of a terrible season. You know how it is in sports. If the team isn’t doing well, no one is happy. Players, coaches, administration, fans and alumni—you name it—everyone was expressing their discontent. It got so bad that it began to upset Rodgers’ home life. He said, “My dog was my only friend. I told my wife that a man needs at least two friends and she bought me another dog.”
When times are tough, it helps to keep your sense of humor.
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”—Proverbs 17:22.
