I'm not sure why it always seems to work out that David is out of town and there's some sort of personal crisis going on. He's in Philadelphia for some geeky World Championship Bridge Tournament. I should be more supportive, but I found myself being irritated and hanging up on him too quickly as he was saying the sweet "good bye-I-Love-you's". I feel badly, so now I sit and wait for the 8 pm break call back to apologize. If you're married or in a relationship, you know the drill.
Certainly I haven't been lacking in love and support from my friends. Waking up this morning to an inbox full of emotional encouragement was incredible. I felt uplifted - like some invisible force was holding me up under my arms. I've been reading the blog comments and emails several times. If somebody took the time to write me, I want to fully allow their kind words to penetrate my heart. I have allowed myself to feel like such a loser, so you have no idea how much all this means to me right now.
I've had some rescue opportunities come my way. I don't think I'm interested in joining another rescue organization at this point. I really don't want to be mistreated again. Of course, I sit here and think about the cats in the shelters and wonder how soon I can pull myself together so that I can rescue them.
