Yesterday was pretty rough, but I'm feeling much better. It's amazing what a good night's sleep and a couple of small miracles in the form of an ipod and verizon fios rewards will do for perspective. Thanks to all for sweet words of encouragement and validation."The world doesn't seem such a howling wilderness as it did last night. I'm so glad it's a sunshiny morning...I'm glad it's not rainy today because it's easier to be cheerful and bear up under affliction on a sunshiny day. I feel that I have a good deal to bear up under. It's all very well to read about sorrows and imagine yourself living through them heroically, but it's not so nice when you really have them, is it?" (From L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables)
Sometimes I forget about what wonderful and supportive friends and family we have because we feel so isolated where we are now.
I really am the luckiest.
Thanks especially to Melinda, Kristen, Kiana, Jessica, Heather, and Connie for leaving great advice and encouragement.
