This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Rolland I am sorry for your loss! It will be 5 years the end of November I lost my Rose to cancer, it was sudden due to a late diagnosis. I would gladly give up every thing I have to have her back with me.
Hey there Carol .. I am so happy I brought a smile to your face. Sometimes just joking around a bit eases the pain we can all feel. I never thought I had my wit left or could ever laugh again, but find it's coming back. The group at Bible Study tell me I make them laugh even when I'm serious. Go figure! I ask some hard questions in that group. I thought they'd kick my fanny out of there long ago. LOL
I see we have a passion for elephants and I feel the same as you do; they are so family orientated, protect not only their young, but each other (better than many humans do) and the thing that gets me about them is they actually grieve and cry tears. It breaks my heart.
Don't worry about going forward and a little back as I've had days like that and it could be the up-coming holidays. Sometimes we just don't know which end is up. I am so happy you got to talk about your Jack to that nice lady. It does help. The lady that has the Bible Study in her home lost her husband a year ago and we were drawn together like magnets.
We've got to get that lunch together as I think we'd have a good time. I doubt we'll get snow this year.
Had my nephews over and one of their girlfriends for a movie and they love the goodies I make. I had a nice roaring fire going in the fireplace and we had a great time. Little stinkers were talking about age and looked at me (always teasing me) and I just quipped what Kathy Bates did in 'Fried Green Tomatoes' .... 'I'm older and have more insurance.' LOL We had some good laughs, but after they left I had a tear or two start and I had to slap myself a good one. I have no idea what brings this on.
I hope things are going well for you and you have a great weekend. I'll be checking out Legacy throughout the weekend if anyone needs to just talk.
God Bless & Hugs
Dear Georgia ... Thank you so much for the nice compliment. It comes at a good time because I imagine many of us don't get that many compliments and can feel alone. Trying to find a new life is not easy when older.
God Bless you!
