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.

Happy 4th everyone, Hope everyone has family or friends to help them thru this holiday. This is the 2nd 4th without my Greg and am having a hard time with it, my girls are coming over for dinner and to do a few fireworks today then on Saturday we will go to my sisters for a huge party with family, we will see how it goes, it seems harder this year for some reason but last year it was only 2months since Greg passed so maybe I was still in shock, I don't know. everyone be safe and have a good day
Thank you all so much.
YAY Mary Jane! So happy to hear this news.
Mary Jane Im so glad things went well for you, I was thinking of you yesterday and saying a prayer
Mary Jane ... HURRAH ... Prayers really do work! So happy things went well for you.
Mazel Tov on the great news. Very happy for you!
I AM FINE!!!! No cancer...thank u all so much..it’s naptime..back much later.
Mary Jane...I'm thinking about you and praying for the best outcome. I'm sorry the prep has made you so sick. I hope you're feeling better by the time you check back in with us
In 2 hrs I leave for my colonoscopy. I have never been sicker in my life..they gave me WAAAAY too much prep and pills, and not to be graphic, but still haven,t stopped. I called the drs ofc to make sure I could still come in and she said yes, it is common so I am going. I started the prep at 2 pm..it is now 10am. I have done this b4 and it was NEVER EVER like this. I am also dehydrated but can,t have water...I can barely get into the shower.plus it is almost 100 degrees today. I am so very weak.
It was difficult for me yesterday, I was moved to do this last month. Something I had been thinking about for a long time and when I saw the ad on FB it hit me...Mark was telling me he wanted it. Sounds silly to some, but not to us on this site. I had the Urn sitting in the dinning room for over a week and bought the big planter a few days ago. As usual I put it on my procrastination list of things to do. Yesterday at church, the message was about the word 'Now' and how we all procrastinate...about a lot more things than tasks etc...for our discussion here I won't go into to the theological parts of the message. However, I did google the word now as to how many times it is used in the KJB...1335 times. That was all I needed to get off my couch and get started. I shudder to think how many missed opportunities I have missed out on because of my procrastination. Mark and the forces of this wonderful universe push me along into unknown territory now more than ever. If I am thinking of someone, I do not put it off. Thanks to the wonderful world of technology I can call, text or message that person. Sometimes all they need is a hello...
I think dear sister that you are too humble about yourself...your calling was to this site. I see the progress each one of us faces thanks to everyone on this site, but for me, I have you personally to thank. You were the first one to immediately reach out to me. And I continue to see you reach out to everyone, putting aside your own grief, anger, hurt and loneliness to help others. I am most blessed to have you in my life.
