It's been a week from hell for many of those closest to me and I've been too distracted (far worse than my usual distracted self, if you can believe that) and haven't been able to read a thing.  But I am learning some big lessons about kindness and perseverance in the face of pain and heartbreak. If my daughter, who deals with constant back and rib pain and suffers from anxiety, can still smile every day and believe that  "things happen for a reason" I guess I have to too.


But some weeks really do suck for no apparent reason. 


Here's hoping your week was better than ours!
