The flight is tomorrow. I'm sure she has a few more tricks up her sleeve beforehand.

Wish me luck. I'll certainly need it.
Well said, and kudos on you clarity.

Good luck on the execution of your plan.

Thanks and God bless us all,

I commend your resolve, it is so very important to "Say what you mean and mean what you say".

I dropped her off at the airport this morning.

After our "this is about my recovery..." talk, she changed her tone to "what do I have to do to come home...?"

Blasted emotions, I hate this ride!

I'm in dire need of some "me" time to focus on my desired outcomes. The promise I made to myself is that I will consider my child and myself over the long term (1 year, 5, 10 and 20 year time horizons).

This sucks! However, it is part of life and I consider this moment an opportunity for my growth. I look to God's infinite wisdom to guide me and give me strength. This is all part of molding me into the person I NEED to be.

As I said before: I'm tired, but resolute.

Thank you all for your support. You may be strangers, but kindred spirits.

God bless us all.
