just a little summer to hang on to

Somewhere I heard someone say that being a parent is like wearing your heart on the outside of your body for the rest of your life. It's so true.

What did I say?  IF the sun comes out at all this weekend I'll take another shot at it but I started physical therapy for my back today and the thought of slowly descending into really cold water makes me kinda clench. We'll see.

Oh. Yes. Such a beautiful, happy-making handful.

My mother once said something like, "They don't tell you when you become a parent that you'll worry for the rest of your life. It's not just when your kids are little. It's until the day you die." Had a big effect on me.
