You’ve been through some tough times with me here these past few years. My mother’s illness and death, the breakdown of my marriage, my return to full-time work and moving to a new home with my girls. I would say it’s been like a roller-coaster, only it hasn’t. For the longest time, it was like nothing other than an uninterrupted free-fall. If I thought I had gone as low as I could, it seemed I would only fall further. I felt, at times, as though my luck had left me and I thought that maybe I had used up all my allotment of happiness in my earlier, younger years. That all that was left to me now was loss and fear and sadness.
