Hug from a child changes everything.

Today was a rough day. Job prospect fell through (after a short trial period proofreading for a court reporter was sent an email saying that I wasn't as good as her longtime proofreader and wasn't worth being trained), our car definitely won't last much longer, and lastly one of my eyelids is inflamed (I'll spare you the details but it's not pretty and it's not pinkeye, which I also had recently).

But, tonight my 3 1/2-yr-old nephew, while standing on the edge of his bed asked me to come to him. When I did he put his arms around me and gave me the best hug I'd had in a long while. Problems? I don't have any.
