Books, Chocolate and "Cathy" Comic Strips
I came home thinking I was holding it together pretty well, considering the stressful week I've had. Then I saw the gift an old family friend had dropped off for me on the stove: a book about motherhood and a box of chocolate truffles. And I stood over the kitchen sink and cried, quietly so the kids wouldn't hear. Her kindness felt like a life raft.
Books, chocolate and friends. What more do you need? That sounds like the caption to a "Cathy" comic strip, I know. But today I'll take whatever comforts I can get.
