Good luck with your "mandatory potluck" Pam! And Canary is right you are an inspiration.
A depression that has been gnawing at me for two weeks broke today - I really have no specific explaination, but, I was sitting on the subway, and thinking about buying an egg white veggie snack wrap - they are a slightly decadent but not killer treat I get when I convince myself I deserve a treat. I walked towards Dunkin Donuts, and a homeless man said "hello sweetheart" - normallly somewhat offensive, but somehow, he seemed so good, and there but for the Grace of God go I. I gave him the money I was going to spend on my treat, and my depression left with it. It is a miracle, well documented, when you give you get.
And, you all are such givers, thank you for your help!
