things i'm grateful & hopeful for:

+ having the most caring, amazing, kind, and giving guy who is there for me through ups and downs.

+ having a lot of time with my mom before her brain surgery next week.

+ having friends who love me unconditionally even if i'm slow to answer phone calls, make plans, and talk.

+ having an eye doctor who will help me find a plan C, D, E, and F when plans A and B haven't worked.

+ having amazing opportunities open up for me that three years ago I would have never thought possible.

+ having the friendship of other makers here.

While this fall has been the most challenging I have experienced, thank you friends, you make all of this so worth it.

How inspiring it is that you are appreciative of what you have even when life is tough! I need to pay close attention to that. These things sound incredibly hard, and I'm sad that you have to go through them but glad that you have support. My best hopes are with you, and I'm sending all my good thoughts your way. You are a kind person who deserves good things.

Oh Julia, it sounds like you have a lot of things going on for a person to have to deal with. I'm glad that you have love and support and can see the sun shining through the clouds.

I think life is like the seasons - sometimes we are in the cold, bitter winter and it feels like things will be like this forever. But then, just when we think we can't take it anymore, the sun starts to shine again and warms us inside.

I'll be thinking about you and your mother. I hope everything goes well with her surgery.

Reading this is like finding yourself in the eye of a storm. I remember being in one a long time ago when I was little and having a surprising sense of clarity and calm. Sending good thoughts your way....
