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

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 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 it is almost 100  degrees today. I am so very weak.

Dear Marsha,

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.

your brother
