I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of my Spark Friends you reached out to me yesterday when I was having a bad day. You sent hugs and well wishes and messages to cheer me up and that in itself made me feel so much better. I could feel the hugs and they made me smile just knowing that you were all there wishing me a better day. I do so appreciate the concern and support. It was just one of life's stumbles..... "kid issues" and summer employment issues, losing job benefits, and major plumbing issues at our summer lake house. It was just one of those things that snowballs and makes you think you're going to crack!! Good news..... I didn't!! I made peace with my daughter, some of the summer school issues were resolved (not all),but at least I will be employed for an extra 8 weeks this summer and they took away our raise for next year, but I guess the silver lining there is we never even got it so hopefully I won't miss it. I have my family,my friends (you guys are the best), I can put food on the table, have an occasional fun day out and I have a beautiful summer place to enjoy on hot summer days with family and friends. Life is good and I am grateful. And I'm not feeling to shabby about how I'm looking in my shorts this season!
