I’m watching Fred Clause on ABC Family and quite enjoying it so far.

They are having the president’s reception at my conference tonight til 10 and I don’t really feel like going. There will be beer but I’ll see how I feel after the movie.

I unexpectedly ran into a colleague on the elevator yesterday who had reviewed a project of mine last month (the first time I had met him). It confirmed the fluttery feelings he gave me then. Unfortunately, I feel and look like a beached whale.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
