Life at work has not been wonderful lately. In fact, I've been pretty close to quitting more than once the past month alone. Today is my mother's birthday. A mother I miss very much since her death 18 months ago.
So after a crap day at work, which was amplified by my blues about Mom, I was pretty fried by the time I was dragging myself home after picking up my son from school. I wanted nothing more than to check my email and veg before the whole evening routine began.
What do I find when I log on to my computer? AOL News that Dana Reeve, widow of actor Christopher Reeve, released a statement today that she has lung cancer. She decided to do the press release when she found out a tabloid was going to break the story. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. I feel so bad for her 13 year old son Will who has already been through so much.
After that I click on over to KarenS' blog and take a link ride to PBW and read about the tragedy in her life. This is an author that I frequently read (PBW) and her story about her son is nothing short of tragic.
Sure puts my sack of rocks in perspective.
