This letter grew out of a comment on a blog post I offered to a friend who’s in a difficult situation. And I just recently spoke with another in a similar situation. It’s daunting how many this disease touches.
I’m so sorry to hear of the pain you’re going through. I’ve been there. And although I shy [...]
And if I hear one more celeb, newscaster or blogger discuss what they’re thankful for or how to be thankful or how to keep a gratitude journal or how to exploit this holiday in any other way I’m gonna….
Oh. I’m complaining again. It comes so naturally. It’s easy to [...]
