Then I remember that way, way back, we signed up for these hardships. When I understood this principle, I thought, "Really? I signed up for this? Others signed up for this? Come on. You've got to be kidding."
But it's true. In the pre-mortal existence, we signed up for what we would face in this mortal life. And Heavenly Father promised us a Savior to help us, to make sure that we are never alone.
Joy for today: remembering that we are never alone.
