Working Weekends

I have had the distinct “joy” of working through my weekend.  Nothing quite rings in the holiday cheer like 10-16 hours days filled with research and writing, and my back beginning to imitate the curvature of my 92-year-old grandma’s osteoporosis-ridden spine.  Ba humbug.

Thank goodness for those few individuals who truly see me, who know me, and who reflect back to me who I truly am.  What a blessing it is to be and do the same for others.

To being mirrors!
