The thing of it is - it rarely lasts, those angry days.
The sun comes up. The breeze is warm on my face. I have friends, I have family, and I am very loved.
This was one of those weeks - where the sheer loveliness of it all scrubbed the cobwebs away from the dank corners of my mind.
Cases in point:
- Taking Ben to splash in the sprinklers at the park, and watching him show off his "NAKED TUM!!!" to his friends with enough joy to power a small city.
- Meeting a friend for shopping and dimsum in Flushing. (Never underestimate the power of a cheap t-shirt or three and cute earrings from Target.)
- Meeting another friend for margaritas and chips to talk about blogging, and have another friend see you through the window and come join you.
