07:10 am: building my core
I wish I meant my torso, but I don't.

Going through some tough, tough times and holding on with all I've got. I have had moments in the past where being there (not just being here, if you know what I mean) for Teddy was what held me together.

For the past few days, it's been hours at a time.

I don't like it. I don't live through my kid (or I try not to). But there are times when I live because of him.

I'm working on it. I'm a fundamentally optimistic person. I'm strong.

I like having strength in reserve a whole lot better than I like having to draw on it.

I am here.

Whatever you need. We are here for you.

You are a strong person... just know when your amazing strength is no match against "that which is stronger", you ask for help. Asking for help is not your Strength. But now's the time to practice it.

Anything you need. I can be there within 2 hours. I can make phone calls. I can do research. You are welcome here.

Anything you need.

Your support means the world to me. I promise to ask if I find something you can help with. Promise.

Teddy and I plan to see a movie at Legacy this Saturday morning, then go to NEMBF. Dunno if that plan will stick, but if it does, wanna have lunch with us?

I can't promise lunch just yet on Saturday... was planning on visiting my MIL and get work done at her house. I'm so sad you'll be in town and I may be out of town. Will let you know.... how's Teddy doing?

On either count. We'll be keeping busy while we're in town, though of course we'll miss you.

And Teddy's doing fine. We're trying to protect him from the turmoil.

I don't know what is going on, but I'm thinking of you. Even though we've never met in person, I feel pain for you right now.

I really appreciate it. I'll get through this, I know. Somehow... but definitely with the support of friends.

You do have wonderful friends -- and that says a lot about your strength, your humanity, and your caring for others. I'm proud of you, m'dear, and confident you'll be okay and then some!
