I can't tell how much I've been relying on other people's positiveness. Even my little ones have been a buoy to me. Yesterday, in a moment of weakness the kids found me curled up on my bed. When they asked what was wrong, I told them "I really, really want to go to school but I don't have enough money."
Lily put her arms around me and said, "It's OK, Mom. Just look on the bright side."
Then Calvin brought me a penny he found on the floor. "Here, Mom, you can use this."
So, about that bright side, if we work it right, I might be able to take one class this summer. OK. It's better than going bonkers for another semester.
