“Everything is fine.”  Josephine Fridinger

This quote does not offer much insight, but the way it came to me 19 years after it was written from my mother is. I had been feeling her absence a little more acutely and wishing for some encouragement from her. As I was reading, the postcard–that I use for a bookmark–on which the above is written, fell out of the book and the words sprang off the paper in a mystic greeting. Elatedly, I began to cry. Thanks, Mom, everything is fine!
