Smiles

I am good today. I have a lot to think about, but I am feeling good about everything. I am slowly realizing that I can't go through life by myself and I have to let others in.

Remember me talking about the letter I mailed Laura on Monday? I think it would be fitting if she received it today because it was 4 years ago today that we met. I didn't plan on her getting the letter today; in fact it wasn't until this morning that I realized what day it was. Letting go feels really good.

I have also been listening to this song a lot. I remember hearing it while I was sitting in the dentist chair last New Years Eve. I could have written this song.

Today is my cousin Joel's birthday. Joel is one year younger then me and we were such good buddies growing up. It always seemed like we were going through the same things at the same time: graduations, weddings, divorces, moving, etc. I think of all my cousins I miss him the most. He has such a kind spirit and could always make me laugh. Happy Birthday Jo-Jo.

Caroline ..glad your days are improving. I have another comment to make...I have been reading and enjoying your friend mj's blog and today noticed you mentioned about her commenting to people. I'm just wondering....I have left several comments in your blog (especially trying to be positive about the non-smoking) but other times as well, and NEVER received a comment back. Is it because I dont blog myself ......just wondering, thats all...no biggie. Ruth in Canada
