presentation=isolation ; revelation= real relationship

down days. they're okay to have.

it is very important to me to be the fighter that i am.
i take pride in beating the odds and not becoming what is expected of me.
i take pride in rising above.
circumstances make it easy and even desirable for me to crumble sometimes
but grace that i will never understand holds me tight and forces me to overcome.

so, i do.
i just get through because that's all we can do.
this world is c r a z y and we just have to make it through.

i am so young.
i get it.
but i know what i know,
and as little as it may be, it gets me through.

i make it.
i wake up not so early and drink my coffee and get my therapy.
not the kind that costs money -- just the music in my car.
it seems to be just enough.
sometimes i nod my head in agreement with the lyrics -- what a dork.

i like to be silly and write about my favorite candy;
it is so important to be able to lighten up.

but if that's all i am remembered by, i haven't done it right.
i long to be a legend, like my uncle lewie.
in the most humble way possible -- the way he did it.

to love --to truly love-- simply, with my life.

"he said to me, 'my grace is sufficient for you, for
my power is made perfect in your weakness.'
...that is why i delight in
in insults,
in hardships,
in persecutions,
in difficulties.
for when i am weak, then i am strong."
