Merrilee sent me the link to this video by Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place. It immediately made me think of how lucky I am in life. I am surrounded by so many strong, supportive women - each struggling with her own challenges - each downplaying her own fears or weaknesses in order to reach out further to those in need - each drawing strength from women both down the street, behind an email address, and miles away.
I feel so fortunate right now - in my own difficult time of relocation and single motherhood - to have such support from those who have always been close to me, from those re-entering my life, and from those with whom I'm forming new friendships with.
Watch the video above, but not without a tissue nearby!
