friday, october 20, 2006: happy birthday momma.

There are plenty of reasons why I get a sick feeling in my stomach when I think about being in school for two more years, but the biggest one is being far away from all the people I love. It's my sweet fabulous mother's birthday today, and I can't even give her a hug, the best low-cost birthday present I've got.

But it is also thanks to her unwavering belief in me that I know, no matter how hard it seems sometimes, that I can do this. Her confidence in me is a constant reminder that it is an amazingly exciting adventure, which of course I can handle. And her love is strength when I worry I'm losing mine.




the older things.
