I feel like I'm in a really good place in life right now. I remember telling a friend last winter that I just feel happy. I do, and it's good. There was a period in my life where depression stalked and threatened to overtake me but I feel like those days are in my far distant past. I feel healthy and I feel content, and I am so incredibly grateful I can say that. BUT...I have several friends right now who are in dark places. My heart hurts for them. I'd give anything to be able to fix things for them but I'm pretty helpless to do much more than pray, listen, or pass the Kleenex when the tears spill forth. It feels like there is so much suffering around me at the moment...it feels so heavy...and I hate it.
On a much lighter note, I had the sweetest conversation with Abbey this morning before school. One of my friends offered to pick Subway up for lunch and take it to Abbey at school since she was doing that for her kids too. She's a great friend and always doing nice things like that for me and my kids (though I'm 99.9% certain Abbey proposed this idea). The fact is that I love that Abb is comfortable enough around my friend to ask "hey, if you're bringing your kids some lunch, could you bring me some too?" I also cringe
I should get back to work...
