extraordinary efforts

I recently wrote in an email to a girlfriend: "I know, I'm crazy!" 

and she replied:

"i wouldn't call it crazy, i'd say you are just doing everything possible to help your kid. you're a normal mom (who happens to be a tough chick) put in extraordinary circumstances, which leads you to extraordinary efforts."

It's really nice to have supportive friends. Thanks, Jessica!

And she is absolutely right. I feel crazy all the time, but I'm beginning to think that those of us who feel crazy are the ones who are never satisfied with just good enough. We're always asking what can I do better today that I didn't do yesterday? It's good to question ourselves from time to time to make sure we're headed in the right direction. And it's imperative that we have good friends who back us up along the way. I'm glad you have those friends.

Just read the quote: when despair says "give up", hope whispers "try one more time".
