Sorry for the delay. I am so sick of thinking and talking about my brother... So if I haven't called you or talked to you about it, sorry. It is kind of exhausting, but its seems like I cannot stop thinking about him. But it would be sad if I could just forget about my brother on command. So he pled guilty to a misdemeanor and is getting out of jail next week, which scares me. He will basically be homeless and I have no idea what he will do. As part of his parole, the court ordered him to report to the Dept. of Behavorial Health and enroll in their program. I doubt he will do it. I mean, he ended up in jail because he didn't want to get help. So, that's it. I still feel churned up and am beginning to wonder whether I am just grieving or clinically depressed.

On to happier things, my mom and I went to see Curious George after the trial to distract ourselves. You should know that I have been a Curious George fan since high school, so my opinion may be biased. It was great! I am absolutely smitten with George! He was adorable and made the cutest faces! And I usually don't like cartoons, but its a winner. I have already decided to buy it.

I visited my grandma, Omi, last week. She is fabulous - one of my favorite people. We went to see Something New with Sanaa Lathan (Brown Sugar, Love and Basketball). It was neat to see the struggles of an interracial couple. I have always been intimidated by inter-cultural relationships. It would be so difficult, but nobody ever talks about how to deal with it or how it can be great. Still in the end, the movie was just a cute chick flick.

I am giving up sugar for Lent. What am I thinking? Let's see if I can do it. I tried once in undergrad and only made to day twenty.

Guess what? Wait, first I have to give you background. 1) I never pray (well, more as of late, but usually, never). 2) I can sleep forever and through anything. So, Guess what? On Monday morning, God woke me up at 6:30AM to pray!!! I know! It was cool. I just woke up, and thought, "I need to get up and talk to God." That should have started my post.

Hello!
Today is a good day for me. I hope you find the energy to do something physical to activate some endorphins. I think I'll go walk the dog.
I can't wait until Nick's episode is part of his past patterns and not such an overshadowing burden.
Pray more! Sing! I love to hear your voice.
Love, Mom
