Wow Geri, you've really broadened your perspective, started some very hard work, and I'm really proud of you. Perspective is a crazy thing--when we're in the middle (or at the bottom) or something, we just can't see the larger picture and every single thing is overwhelming. But if we can somehow manage to step back far enough to glimpse how our hardships or our reality are just one thread in a tapestry (or one drop in the ocean, whatever analogy floats your boat)every step seems easier to manage and nothing is beyond our ability.
Okay, I may have gone off a little there, but I hope you know what I mean. Good luck with your continued talks with your mom. If you need anything, we'll be here with you whenever you need us. You have become a part of our lives too you know. Thank you for letting us.
P.S. If you ever want to reach me by e-mail, my address is lking at mbdlaw dot com or olasovking at yahoo dot com. Don't be a stranger!
