I can do this.  The battle cry, feels like pressure to be more than I am.  But I don’t want to.  The childish maxim, feels like permission to give up.  Neither one is right.   
Thank goodness we aren't doing it alone.

I used to think I had a great vocabulary. I even thought I was articulate.

I'm running out of words. Only feelings, have I. So I close my eyes and send you all I have to give....

Those pigtails, oh my!

You're right, you're not doing this alone. We're here; we're praying, wishing, cursing, and loving right alongside of you.

Jenni Baby,

As I posted previously, you are blessed to have the "Celia Circle."
Your feelings are the concerns of many and you are NOT alone.


P.S. Don't worry, but I had to go to the hospital last night...got my stomach pumped...and asked for a smoking room.

I say "I don't wanna!" a lot in my head. It does a mind some good. :)

When we get beyond the most difficult times in our lives, we think, "How did we ever do that?!" The answer is always, "We didn't have a choice; we HAD to do it." The GIFT is to realize that you're not doing it alone. Love to all of you!
