Today is quite a day.
It is a beautiful day where I am.
It is my niece’s 14th birthday (happy birthday!).
It is a sad day of remembrance; and well do I remember the horror I felt as I sat, sobbing on the floor in front of my television, trying to explain to my not-quite-two-year-old and not-quite-four-year-old daughters why I was crying.
It is also a day of celebration because S. over at Our Vietnamese Ladybug just got her referral.
“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.”
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.
