Tell me something happy, something that made you smile today, or something you're looking forward to.

I could use some good, happy thoughts right now.

Thanks guys,

Not sure if this helps since you don't have kids yet but whenever things get a bit much for me I remember the feeling of watching my 15 mo old wander over smiling at me when I get home . . . and my two older daughters trying to drag me in two directions at once. . . .

Hang in there, things are never as bad as they seem. . . .

I have a card from my husband on my desk... It's got a large smiling yellow sun on it. Over the sun it says: "Thought for the day" Below the sun it says: "Every morning, all the stupid people you know get together and plan ways to make your life more difficult." Inside the card it says: "Just thought you'd like to know."

The things you've been writing about recently would get most people down. If it didn't upset you, you wouldn't be the same person, and you wouldn't be the right person for the job.

It seems to me like you're doing the best you can to deal with things, and until you accept that you can harden yourself somewhat yet still care, you'll probably be a bit down for a while. Apologies if I've misinterpreted, however.

Other than that, try to smile, it will make you feel better!

"To breathe in the sun of my father, and to lay in my mother's arms"

I leave you with a poem that I wrote about 4 years ago. I am not sure if it will make you smile, but I just wish you well...take good care of yourself.


…for what a butterfly represents in my life:
evolution, beauty and free flight!

i crave to learn how such things,
can create such beauty among my senses,
can create amazing wonder and excitement.
for i try to understand my own self,
does life mirror the physical attributes of a butterfly?

and i touched one, i held one-
a bulb of earthly lightning awakens my eyes,
my fingers,
my skin to the possibilities of my spiritual mind.
but then, i get lost, and i get persuaded to move myself
towards a common interest of one;
common interest of another.

such nothingness,
such stillness in the world of culture's art palaces.
but a butterfly...
a butterfly is nothing- but a butterfly!
from its evolving caterpillar’s being,
to its current state of being,
i choose to seek this belonging of being, a butterfly:
evolving and full of exotic- outside wonder!

I miss you like it's my job.

You make my life, and it's kind of ridiculous, because I talk about you constantly to people.

"My best friend [Sam] is an EMT. I got to ride on a call with her the other day! After that she saved this guy's life!!! She's a complete badass/hero."

Eventually people are like "Uh...you don't have to say 'my best friend [Sam], we know who she is, we know she's an EMT, (we think you made her up?)"

I'm so proud of you all the time.

Daffodils in spring. Snow ball fights. Mountains. Autumn (fall) leaves.

The beauty in nature never ceases to inspire me with hope.
