It's Been Six Months...

...since my LID! I may only be a third or a fourth of the way through the wait, and I know in just a couple months I have to start redoing my paperwork, but for now I'm feeling optimistic.

I found this quote about hope and it fits my mood today.

If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Congrats on six down. Hard to belive. To me, it seems I just heard you were LID such a short time ago.

    I hope it flits by happily for the rest of the wait!
