I believed that playing the roles of wife and mother were the least I could do to help support Tom's career.
During the day, I was a puzzle with innumerable pieces. One piece made my family a nourishing breakfast. Another piece ferried the kids to school and to soccer practice. A third piece managed to trip to the grocery store. There was also a piece that wanted to sleep for eighteen hours a day and the piece that woke up shaking from yet another nightmare. And there was the piece that attended business functions and actually fooled people into thinking I might have something constructive to offer.
I was a circus performer traversing the tightwire, and I could fall off into a vortex devoid of reality at any moment. There was, and had been for a very long time, an intense sense of despair.

“The information. Every bit that of information that was ever in your brain. But the information is not the mind Jenna. That we've never accomplished before. What we've done with you is groundbreaking. We cracked the code. The mind is an energy that the brain produces. Think of a glass ball twirling on your fingertip. If it falls, it shatters into a million pieces. All the parts of a ball are still there, but it will never twirl with that force on your fingertip again. The brain is the same way.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Adoration of Jenna Fox

“It just smacks you right in the face. Finally, everything starts to come together and snaps into place. This is not always the most pleasing of experiences, but so necessary to turn the page to the next chapter.
One day, all the pieces of your life's puzzle will come at you like a tidal wave, with the lessons for each following closely behind on the very next wave.
Grab a hold of all the pieces, good or bad. Start putting together all the parts of your personal puzzle. Each piece representing a lesson to be learned and applied to your life. Don't leave a single one behind. This puzzle is different than any other. Make this one a priority to finish. Don't ever get up from this one and leave it incomplete. If you do, the pieces will all fall back in the box, and you will reopen the box over and over again until you do finally decide to put it all together.”
Christine E. Szymanski
