My favorite pic of Cole.

"The psychological condition of fear is divorced from any concrete and true immediate danger. It comes in many forms: unease, worry, anxiety, nervousness, tension, dread, phobia, and so on. This kind of psychological fear is always of something that might happen, not of something that is happening now." ~Eckhart Tolle

Living in the NOW, that's what I'm trying to do. I'm grateful I woke up in a warm bed today, next to my husband. And we're both healthy! I'm more than grateful for that. We had a good yummy breakfast and I was able to feed all 3 of my kids good, healthy breakfasts as well. My wonderful mother-in-law has been busy doing my laundry for the last 2 days. What a blessing that is..to have her, first of all, and to have warm water and soap and a washer and dryer to do it all.! What a convenience! It makes it so much easier (believe me, I've done laundry by hand with freezing water in Argentina). I had a car today to run my errands and warm clothes to wear for myself and my children. Today is a good day. I have every thing I need. Geof. got called in to sub again today, at the middle school in Amboy. He does have a job-today! When I think this way, I'm content. I'm calm. I'm happy.

Life will be okay.

-No word on the job with Insitu. He does have a 2nd phone interview with University of Phoenix. Looks hopeful.
