Happy Birthday, Lessa!!
Spent yesterday afternoon in a paradise much like this one. There's a lovely bike path near my house and the colors are incredible!!
Things have been pretty difficult for Daniel and I. We'd been visiting each other for a week every other month, since that was the most we could get away with, and it was difficult, but manageable. But Daniel's job at Best Buy is hitting the busy season and he wouldn't be getting any time away till after New Years, and even then not knowing how soon. We had resigned ourselves to this, and it made us miserable individually, because neither wanted to bring it up and upset the other. I was afraid we were starting to fall apart.
We talked about it the other night, and I convinced him to ask his boss about it, and see if it was really as bleak as we thought. Even just a couple days, enough to drive there, spend the day and drive back. Yesterday, his boss was in a bind, and needed his help, and afterward, the boss guaranteed him four whole days break, in November!!
Right around my birthday!!!
I can't even express
my joy right now!!! Not only will I be with him within the month
, but this was more than either of us thought possible! I've been over-flowing with excitement and gratitude since yesterday, and I just had
to tell you, before I go off like a firework and explode happiness everywhere!!!
I'd love to bottle up this feeling and send it to each of you,
to wrap you up like a warm embrace
and carry you on your way.

Oh Soirdelune... I can't imagine how worried you must be. Your poor love! *wrapping you up in a big hug* Her mother must be an incredible woman to have beaten it back once before: she's a survivor, and that kind of will can move mountains!! Stay positive, and hang in there!! Wishing her mother strength and brilliant doctors. Wishing you and your darling peace.
