Recently, I've been going through what my Southern grandmother used to call a "Baptism by Fire." She had a lot of great little anecdotes and homilies that have stuck with me throughout my life. She always made me think, take a little step back and examine my actions.

But I digress.

It's been difficult. Very difficult. But it is, perhaps, one of those clouds with silver linings, of which my grandmother always spoke. Because, you see, I have found out who my friends are. And you are wonderful people. You have stood by me and loved me, and been kind. You and my family have brought joy and caring to me. I cannot express the gratitude and love I have for you all. You brighten my life. Thank you.

Rosemary, I'm sending you a hug. Also, sometimes the trying times are there to help you remember all the good stuff. At least, that's what I keep telling myself! Please take good care of yourself, and I'll send you my grandfather's best advice. "It's a phase." Hopefully this phase will end soon.:)
