Today, during check in at a meeting, I heard myself say (the extrovert problem - I don't know what I'm thinking/feeling until it comes out of my mouth, which, as you know sometimes has unfortunate results)ANYWAY, I heard myself say that although January often drags me down, I am unusually optimistic and joyful this New Year. Maybe it's because the universe is showering me with cuteness. Here's two emails I received the other morning.
9:41 am: Update on Jeff's co-worker's new dog.
10:18 am: From a parishioner. Photos of the 16 baby pandas that have been born at Sichuan Zoo since July.
