loneliness & isolation threaten my survival. heart has been broken by life.
&that as bereft &lonely s I feel, I am not alone. something spiritual is going on (haha AW)
we feel we risk something even by thinking about it, bc it whispers into our hearts a truth we don't want to hear. that we can't keep our children safe. realize I needed a bigger God.
"nuttin could separate us from love of God in JC." not even death? I have to believe it.. !

it is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust &sweat &blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again &again because there is no effort without error &shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best knows in the end the trump of high achievement, &who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold &timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -theodore roosevelt
