Resilience

Lorelei,

I was wondering when I would hear back from you.

I cannot believe that you are doubting your ability in the face of these latest life changes because you are someone I have always admired for her strength and endurance. I've always admired your focus.

While I was sleeping off a hangover in my twenties, you were raising toddlers.

While I was dragging myself through a work week at a job I hated, you were working nights and attending college courses during the day.

And while I was whining about a boyfriend, or gossiping about one of my co-workers, you were working part-time, attending school full-time, and making your way through the remnants of a broken marriage.

And you doubt your resilience? Don't.
