A dear friend of mine used to answer the question, “How are you?” with this response. I like it. I use it myself from time to time. It seems perfect in many ways. First of all, it’s positive and balanced. Despite what’s going on in and around me, I think I’m alright. Not “great” (which may be too optimistic for most days, especially in these times). Not “terrible” or “miserable” (which, especially for a person of faith, seems too pessimistic). But “alright.” Hanging in there. Managing.
