tomorrow is another day

there's nothing like a good wallow. and if, at the end of it, you can console yourself with a call to your daddy, and go to sleep wrapped in a shawl your mother knit you, i don't think things can ever be that all bad in your universe.

so i woke up this morning feeling much more optimistic, and in fact, have spent the last half hour creating a "wish list" of all the wonderful things i intend to do with the proceeds of the house. of course there's way more on the wish list than there is money in the house, but i see this as a long-term plan.

today i hope to make some progress on some of my shorter term plans for the next few days. my mother's arriving on friday evening, and we're hosting a birthday party for her and my stepdad on saturday. this all coincides with the return of the children and our leaving for the settlement. so my sense is that i better make the most of the next five days.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

'Morning Annie. There are times when crying is so necessary. It's almost like we're emptying ourselves out to make room for, well, for whatever needs to go in. I'm glad you're feeling better today. :)

Finally catching up. Big hugs to you. Nothing like a good cry to cleanse the soul and bring forth a regrouping. Enjoy the next five days.

Hmm, I can smell great fun coming. I guess you are very excited that your mom will come to visit you. Enjoy it. :)

Thank you for the peace that overfilled me while reading your story. Not high philosophy, but our attitude towards the life creates our smiles.
By the way, the above is the highest philosophy and you are sharing it by your personal example. Thank you once again.

Enjoy your time with family. Everything else will fall into place. As for your list...they are always longer, it seems, than the amount of $$ you have. But that, too, shall work itself out. I have an award for you on my blog. Stop by when you have a chance.
