since we got back from our trip to Boston, and I am still unable to put the experience into words.
All I can really say is that it just gave me the energy I had been lacking. Life is still busy, the kids are still very much themselves for better (and how) and for worse, but I have a little bit more patience, a little bit more coping ability. A little bit more of the vision necessary to see the bright points in my days, for they are many.
Take this, for example. Neta was named, on good authority, Best Giggler Ever. Trust me. It’s true.
