    What do I cherish?

    I cherish the look of mischief in my daughter’s eyes. That is all I need to see to know that she’ll be just fine when she grows up. A woman needs to be able to make waves to survive.

    What might I do differently?

    Gotten over the idea that smart kids don’t ask for help. Join a study group.

    What do I need right now more than anything else?

    A personal assistant! Dear goddess am I swamped.

    Veronica, I love your cherish statement. What a lucky girl your daugther is to have a mom that realizes this important truth.
    And as for an assistant– a couple of writers I know hired high school students who are interested in writing to be assistants this summer. Many of the students have other summer jobs too but were totally excited to have a chance to work with a writer for 5-10 hours a week at $8 to $10 an hour. Maybe it could work for you?

    The answers to my three questions from yesterday.
    #1 My husband’s compassion. A boy in the neighborhood who we both really like but don’t know well stopped by the yard last night to say that he was graduating from high school today. “I am going to college,” he told BF, so proud and excited. BF came inside so moved, tears in his eyes. “Can we get him a graduation present?” He whispered before he couldn’t speak anymore for the tears. On the surface, BF and I are as different as two people can be. But this compassion is where our union was made– it is what guides us and it is our glue.

    #2 I scheduled this week in a way that doesn’t accomodate the way that I work best. I need to be more mindful of that.

    # 3 To keep focused in order to knock out several big to dos this week.

    Ah, Suez– that’s sweet. We’re going with cash for the graduate. It’s what we both could have used when we were graduating!

    Yesterday”s answers to the three small questions:
    # 1 The good-hearted and genereous women who have so generously embraced the mission of Circle de Luz. Joining in community for something so important feels like magic.
    # 2 Not drop by my Blackberry into the toilet. Aye!
    # 3 To take the time to stretch!
