3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
29th Wedding Anniversary today - and what a rollercoaster it's been! I am now fortunately in a position where I know what I'm doing.
Though I am a carer for someone mentally ill, that doesn't mean I'm unhappy - quite the reverse. She isn't a zombie, and her total absolute love for me is warmly appreciated, and I get to run things my way.
All the things we have been through have made us stronger and grateful for what we have now. I intend to continue making the most out of the experience.
