Today is my baby’s 27th birthday and the first one I will ever spend where he is too far for me to visit. Accumulating all the items that have hit me the last 18 months I finally concluded that it was not possible to handle all this change and the stress on my own. I took a huge step and I sought help. I am neither embarrassed nor ashamed that this was necessary because it is one that very well might save me from making a decision I could not change. It is not getting help that is the problem and no one should feel it is wrong to seek it out and sometimes the simple act of knowing you have the right to feel a certain way truly does help.
My oldest is recovering well from his reconstructive surgery, thank you again this week for all the emails asking how he is. The scars will be visible but my son is alive and well and still wants to play softball, what an idiot.
I was sad to hear the news about Donna Summer. She wrote the music that made my life move and I still bought her music and hope her family knows we are all thinking about them.
Three great books this week to give away all from the wonderful people at St. Martin’s. I have also received many more and updated my blog. I am action packed through the middle of July.
