Last Summer

this time was really bad, lots of worry over Joanna and her family finding a safe place to live in San Antonio, worry about Ruth and Chris being able to sell their house, worry about tension between my daughters about the house. Last summer this time was one of the hardest times in my life. I'm still kind of like Beth in Little Women. i want "all the little birds in their nests to agree." When people I love are having major problems with each other i have a terrible time keeping any measure of balance. I think I'm getting a little better at this but it is still terribly hard. I'm relieved that right now there are no overt tensions like last summer. For no good reason, I'm almost afraid to take to deep a breath of relief.
