Today A. told me how proud he was of me for not giving up. He told me that he admired my strength and admitted that many people would not have been able to keep going. This was the sweetest thing he has said to me IF related since we started our journey. It was unprompted, but totally appreciated. Of course, my friends Estrace and Vivelle, made it impossible for me to respond because of the sobs, but I think he knew how much this meant to me.
