My sweetie said, "You're not going to get a home run if you don't swing at the ball." (I probably screwed up his quote, but that's the gist of it. I'm terrible at re-telling anything. If he happens to read this, I might fix it.)
He has been a big encouragement for me. I am so lucky to have him cheering for me because sometimes I can only hear the crickets in my head. He's my Maude.
