I need to do this, even when I don’t want to.

1). We’re having thunderstorms today. I love thunderstorms, as long as there are no tornados.

2). My daughter seemed happy today, like a normal teenager. It makes me glad to see that.

3). I’m reading a very good memoir. It’s sad, but well-written. And I know the author works through a lot of her grim issues before the end.

4). I finished up this semester of graduate school, and I’m waiting for my grades. I worked so, so hard, and I think I did pretty well.

5). The author I sent interview questions to replied back to me with answers. Her kindness gave me a lift.

I made it through, again. It was tough.
