Today I received confirmation of the amount of compensation I will receive through AmeriCorps. I thought, “It really isn’t much, but we will make it do.” I made phone calls and did a bit of running about, all the while playing with the budget in my head. I’m a worrier, you see. I would never let my children play in the street, but I sometimes let my mind wander out there freely.
I do not know how to say thank you to you. I know you love words (and they love you back) because I have been privileged to read them and absorb them and fall in love with them. I am not as good with words as you, but these are the ones that came to mind when I returned home and saw what you had done:
I would thank you publicly, but I understand you prefer to be anonymous to the rest of the World Wide Web. Nonetheless, I would like you to know how unexpected and deeply appreciated this was. I fervently hope the Universe is kind to you. Wherever me and mine are, you will always have friends there.
I think I’m going to go cry some more. Fear not, though: these are joyous tears. ❤
All My Love,
