No huge updates today. I'm finding that every few days works better for me,YA-wise. Just wanted to check in and say that I did give the flowers to The Lady Who Was Mean to Me. I went out of my way to get pink flowers (She's a cancer survivor and wears pink at every single opportunity.) Pink alstroemeria. Very pretty. I also wrote her a card. I gave her the flowers at about 9:00 in the morning. She said nothing other than a perfunctory thanks. So I wrote it off and figured oh well. Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. Finally, at about 4:30, I got an email from her. Pretty terse, 'cause that's just the way she is. But the email said, something like "I give you my true thanks," and it mentioned how many people had stopped by and asked about her pretty flowers and how much she and others enjoyed those flowers today. Priceless. She didn't say much, but I know she had to dig deep to get those words out. It's hard to try to see things from the other person's perspective and even harder to apologize, however tacitly. I really appreciate her willingness to try. That made my day.
