    Saw difficult child again, briefly, this afternoon. He said, "I have something I want you to listen to. This is for you. I'm sorry about the past."

    I listened. I cried. Most of it applies. He said he is intentionally listening to artists who are in recovery and making it. I don't know what tomorrow holds. But today is a VERY good day.

    MWM -- Thanks! I'm very thankful for yesterday, so I did celebrate it well. However, this morning I awaken kind of backing up my emotions just a little....just because it feels a wee bit I can roll with it easier.

    For what it's worth, though, we did survive the 3 days together. No arguments whatsoever. Totally new turf here. We'll see. :)

    You were wise to back it up just a little, but one thing you do know for sure ~ where his heart and hopes are.

    And that he loves you.

    This is beautiful.
