    As always, I love, love, love your posts, but this one … with Anne Lamott … is just what I needed to hear. I don’t even have TV but the news still comes through, of course. There are days when I really feel like giving up. But then I remember my friends, family, and of course, Anne Lamott. Thank you Jill. xoxo
