Wow! I got a few errands run, worked, had a doctor’s appointment (which I’d put off for around a year!), and in the evening both of my kids were here. I enjoyed their company. We talked, joked, played cards, and each had some time alone as well. It was simply a life, without the burden of the future or the past.

And today I have another life!
