Please cut me some slack – I really AM trying to do better. This path is new to me, and I am struggling to get my feet under me about it. I am sure I will figure it out eventually, and in the meantime I will probably continue to bumble along the best I can. And believe me – I am beating myself up plenty about all the missteps and mistakes I am making. And I am comforting myself with the belief that one day we will all look back at this time and marvel at how far I have come. So please cut me some slack, and I will try to do the same.
