I may have kind of, a little bit, flipped out this week. It was rough. I had four very intensive days of homework, work was stressful, emotional crap...

Last night, I got out my box of letters and read the first one I received since breaking our silence a year ago. As I read it and let the excitement and warmth was over me, suddenly my worries disappeared.
