Carol ...  Thanks so much and I am always happy to try help other members on here, but, in turn all of you help me too.  I feel so blessed having been part of everyone's lives on here be it sad or a few good times they may enjoy.

Steve ..  Thank you so much for your post, but most of all thank you for all your hard work setting up Legacy and helping people such as myself.  I don't think I would have made it without this site and all the wonderful members so I can't take full credit for forging ahead to counsel.  Jane P's fingerprint with that beautiful saying said it all and all I can do through counseling is help each grieving individual take one baby step at a time and lean on me until they get a foothold on life.  I have learned that grief is part of life and that there is no 'quick fix' and for me at least, grieving has humbled me and made given me more empathy towards others.

Thanks again Steve for all you've done and continue to do.

Chicago Beard ...  Thank you so much, but I couldn't have done it without the help of all of you.  I still remember you were the first person who answered my post shortly after my husband's death.  Thank you!

Marsha that is awesome. I am so happy to see one of our people being asked to step up and help other travelers. You will do well.

Jane P.
it's so true it really hit home. I'm really glad you shared that with all of us on here.

Hello all someone sent me this quote and I wanted to share it with all of you since it hit home with me and my feelings.  Hugs, Jane P.

Marsha, yes please do that! Your wisdom is wonderful and needs to be shared! You always make a difference to us all. It's time to share yourself with others:))

Janeo and Barbara ...  Thank you so much for the encouragement.  Odd you should mention being a counselor as the counselor at my grief class (starts up again the 2nd week of September) wants me to consider being a counselor there as we have so many members unfortunately.  I sure hope so as I would feel better helping others.

Hope both of you are having a good day and I think of all of you often.
