She’s doing SO well and is SO happy and even squealed to show it to me. But not to show it to me. I really think it was just a little squeeze that spurted out, a little gogurt burst of joy. It was like Christmas in August, and I am SO thrilled to watch her be her new and confident self.
She’s loving her work and loving her place in life and loving the lessons from failure — that it’s not her, and that’s it’s okay to not be perfect — because it’s so totally freeing, if you’re open, if you’re wise, enough take it that way.
She says she’s refreshed and energized and wanting to Start Something, what a gem.
She’s doing so good and I am so proud of her. It makes my heart so full. Thank you, Lord, for your good gifts.
Note to self: Be generous with Gloria. Be kind and generous.
Note number two to self: Stay friends with Gloria; you will remind and help each other to continue to be romantic-realists.
We are going to do book swaps and suggest good movies to one another and keep thinking about thotz worthy of the brain space:
