This is an improvement, yes?

Right now it's late, and I can barely stay awake to type this, but I wanted to let you know that at this moment, things don't seem so bad.  Or maybe they just seem farther away.  Yesterday was Lena's last day of kindergarten (I only broke down into completely irrational tears once!), and after school let out we whisked the family up the 5 to San Francisco for the weekend, Sacramento for the rest of the week, and back home on Friday.  Or Saturday.  Or possibly we'll wait to head home until after the Fourth, because why not?  All the things that are worrisome and bothersome and upsetting, all those things still exist, they still need attention, answers, prayers.  But this picture?  This picture was pretty much our day.  Such a good day.  And I wanted to let you know about it.  I want you to know when there are good days, too.  Wonderful days, even when things aren't going the way we wish they were.  Beautiful days.

Just like today.
