This day.

This morning, I woke around 9am and picked up my Kindle to finish this book

AMAZING. Couldn't put it down. I usually read at night before bed and that is all. For the last 2 days I have stayed up to 2am reading. Here is the blurb:
"Travel light and you can sing in the robber's face" was the best advice Summer Zwolenick ever received from her father, though she didn't recognize it at the time. Three years after the accident that ended her career as a ballerina, she is back in the familiar suburbs of Dayton, Ohio, teaching at a local high school. But it wasn't nostalgia that called Summer home. It was her need to spend quality time with her brother, Todd, and his devoted partner, Jacob. Todd, the golden athlete whose strength and spirit encouraged Summer to nurture her own unique talents and follow her dream, is in the final stages of a terminal illness. In a few short months, he will be dead—leaving Summer only a handful of precious days to learn all the lessons her brother still has to teach her . . . from how to love and how to live to how to let go.
Traveling Light is the deeply moving debut novel from Katrina Kittle, the acclaimed author of The Kindness of Strangers—an unforgettable story of love, bonds, and promises that endure longer than life itself.

Initially, I picked it up because this is a local writer. I kind of want to stalk her now, don't judge me.
It made me laugh out loud and sob like a baby--my two favorite things to happen while reading!

As I am drying my tears, I get a call that just ruined my day.

Apparently, somebody very close to me is talking terribly about me. 
So rude. 
And so hurtful.
Family shouldn't behave this way.

I resisted the urge to call the person out on this. As my Mom pointed out, it would start a ripple. 
I need to be bigger than this.
I struggle with poise and grace, so this has been a rough day.
