I was blessed, I suppose, with a naturally cheery personality, though I do tend towards melancholy some of the time. As my gentle readers know, the past few years have seen some real challenges:

A broken lightbulb --
his breezy optimism
shattered on the floor

It´s hard to stay cheery when life keeps throwing you mudpies. I like your poems.

You're human. Sorry for all the sadness, Randy.

Charlotte called tonight to tell DH that Blake took a 180 degree turn for the better after he had a blessing. She mentioned that she knows Blake's life has a purpose. I told her (I hope you don't mind) what you told me in an e-mail a few weeks ago - that her children's quality of life is immeasurably better because they have her. Made her cry. Damn I'm good!

Your children's quality of life is better because they have you for a dad. When I see a regular guy like you, not just dealing with your boys, but loving them - well damn, that's when I think there really is a God.

Honey,from the outside looking in, there ain't NOTHING shattered about you. Although I know you have faced some of the tough challenges, you are one of the strongest people I know.

I dunno, Jo, I feel pretty shattered today. I'm on an emotional roller-coaster ride this month, like I'm cycling or something. :)

Dude, I love your haikus. Just had to point that out.
