  1. I feel your pain! I’m a teeth-grinder as well. I paid $500 for a custom-made mouthguard and can’t stand the thing, but I wear it. After grumbling for five minutes. Did you buy yours over the counter?

    1. Diane, teeth grinders unite? 😉 Yes, over the counter. Needs replacing a few times a year but not as hefty a price as yours! (Yikes.) Did you wear an over the counter one before your custom-made?

  2. Oh, Pearl, I feel bad about how much I enjoyed the story of your dentist visits… I know it couldn’t have been fun to go through, but I’m so glad you shared this lesson that you learned. I highlighted the first sentence of #4 as I was reading, intending to tell you what a great line it was, and then you just kept going with that beautiful example of accepting grace instead of punishing ourselves. So the whole #4. Wow. Thank you for sharing your story and for this beautiful application!

  3. ….HA! Hahahaha!

    This was seriously sweet coffee to me after a breakneck gauntlet of “must-get-dones.”

    You are really progressing as a writer, you know that? (I say that like I’m somebody to say that, but anyways…:)

    Seriously. I feel like I just got done running a marathon and somebody done handed me Dippin Dots and pointed the way to the beach. Thanks.
