Day 277

Jeanine - "Thank you"

Two simple words.

Today they had the power to restore my soul just enough.

More and more lately I feel myself getting tired of the fight...feeling like I want out of the ring.  It is harder and harder to get up for the next round, but it is difficult to know what to do next.

Tonight, after a particularly frustrating day in court, I found this card and letter from the mother of a client waiting for me back at the office.  It is dated almost a month ago - but it arrived today.  I needed it today.  I needed to be reminded that there is a reason I do what I do for a living.

I am reminded of an epitaph worth living up to ..."she used the gifts God gave her."  That is what we ought to be doing...everyday.


  1. amen. i'm glad you found your "moment" when you needed it most. think we are in the same space these days.

  2. very deep, I can't think of what to say cause my comments are usually funny and/or sarcastic...
