this is like the happy ending of a movie! i can hear the music swelling now. it is so much better than i could have hoped.
of course, i know that it is not really the end unless you decide not to go any further with pursuing the avenues still open to you.
but i hope you will pause and rest and savor the moment and enjoy this victory. because - incomplete as it is - it IS a HUGE improvement upon what you were expecting and what most people would fear.
so - my suggestion is not to rush to a decision too quickly. take your time and take care of yourself. be prepared for a possible emotional letdown as the initial exhilaration subsides.
you have accomplished so much and grown so much and dredged up resources from depths of resiliency that i find inspiring and encouraging.
no matter what happens next - you are a VICTOR and a HERO and a WINNER!!! my congratulations and best wishes and prayers for the future...
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
