It's good to be loved

The sad part? This was easily the most personal message I received all day. And no, I haven't...d'y'KNOW how much those brush-head suckers cost?

How does one even get on a mailing list like that?

Your inbox looks like mine - can you just feel the love from all those companies hoping to fork your wallet out of your purse one more time? still figures I'll buy that coveted poster of Tigertail Beach for my kitchen someday. And after I win the lottery by finding the winning ticket dropped by a gas pump at the nearby Chevron, by golly I will.

So here's a personal message for the day. It matters to me that you are out there fighting to live through loss, trying to juggle everything, loving your kid, and writing when you can. I hope you find some deep goodness today.

Oh excellent. Proof that the love letter from a stranger is not a thing of the past.
