I've learned that if you hang a chalkboard, your oldest daughter will write the cat questions on it and wait for answers. And while said cat is smart enough to try to open doors, I still don't believe she can read. I am pretty sure that she is at least part kangaroo though.
I've learned that if one day you start a blog on a whim, you will at some point in the future find yourself held up and encouraged by people with so much kindness in their hearts that it will fill you with gratitude. For the comments, emails, texts and phone calls I received last week, I thank you. This is a fresh new day and I've learned that those are the best kind.
