Hurricane Harvey

A hurricane is an impermanent, ever-changing phenomenon arising out of a particular set of interacting conditions - air pressure, ground temperature, humidity, wind and so on. The same applies to us: we aren't self-contained units either. Like weather patterns, we are also an impermanent, ever-changing phenomenon arising out of a particular set of interacting conditions.
~Kristin Neff

Plus:

The news on TV has shown many shots of people helping each other, too. Good people.

We'll miss you till September 8th...but you deserve a break every once in a while!

Thanks for the helpful and supportive comments! When a child is struggling, a parent is struggling. I'm hanging in there.
