a new day

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds...to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.’’

--Abraham Lincoln


ps--ok, i have to add this for today... my sister and her partner had invited me to austin to see amy ray (half the indigo girls) play tonight. and if the cedar wasn't so high that my whole face aches--even my teeth!--then i'd probably go. and maybe if amy was taking the stage before 9:30pm...that would probably help, too. i am sad to miss the show. i am sad to miss seeing my sister and her partner. i am also sad that i am getting older and having to rearrange priorities and make these kind of decisions...well, sort of. so here's my favorite amy solo song. i've posted it before, but it's still my favorite...and on a day like today, "let it ring" is a perfect sentiment...

I hate when I have to choose between being a mommy and going to see a concert, too. Happens way too much.
