Well, the news isn't terrible, but I've hit a depressing low energy slump due to the weather. The nice part of that is... I know what's causing it, and I know it won't last past spring. The part that sucks is getting to spring, which feels like an eternity away at this point. I did some blood work to ensure this isn't something I need to be frightfully concerned about, and the good new is, it isn't. I came back normal and within healthy, normal ranges; no deficiencies or toxic levels of anything going down in my blood. Cool.
Though I staunchly disagreed with his politics, my heart goes out to George W. Bush and his family... I feel especially awful for the former president, because... I know what he's going through. I lost my daddy, too, and I was as close with mine as he was with his. That's a pain I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, if I had one -- that goes beyond heartbreak, that hurts you all the way to your core; that's your soul hurting. It's sad, because nothing I do or say is going to alleviate that pain for him, nor anyone else in the Bush family, but know this; I hated George W. Bush's politics and everything that resembled them... but I'd do anything to relieve him of the pain he's in. It's sad, but that pain unites us; he may find my politics to be as treasonous as I find his -- but we share the horrific sadness of losing our dads. I had the luxury of not having to grieve the loss of my own in the world's spotlight; I don't envy him for having to deal with the press and a broken heart on top of it. My most sincere and heartfelt prayers to the Bush family, especially George W. Bush. I'd hug that man if I could, and tell him, you probably won't believe me right now, but it's going to be okay. I know it feels like it never will be, but things change. The loss never gets easier, but what does happen, is YOU get stronger. Your father is proud of you and he loves you, and he's safe and happy and Home. You will see him again when you get there -- he'll be holding The Gates open for you.
God love you. I do.
