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.

Thank you Carol, for your input. I have been feeling very emotional, lately, and have decided that this is not the best frame of mind or spirit for making serious decisions. There is no hurry about making a choice. I will keep your suggestion in mind.
Thanks too, for your good wishes.
Marsha, you are on my radar screen LOL....xoxoxoxo
Dear Barbara, I was thinking about your dilemma with regard to moving. That is pretty difficult to think about I am sure. It's interesting that you have 2 daughters in each place. I do support the suggestions from Marsha and Jane P. Perhaps renting out the house on a short term lease and trying out the city? Sometimes we have thoughts built up about where we once lived or would like to go back to, the challenge is that the world around us changes and perhaps it isn't the same as we once thought. It is best to try these things out slowly.
I wish you wisdom and good luck in moving forward.
Hi Janeo, how's it going? Thinking of you!
Dear DesertDove, how are you? I've been spending so much time with my little granddaughter I do run out of writing opportunities and I admit I get pretty tired too!
When I have time I will be watching the movie you recommended and the book too.
It's been so hot here In the 90s and just not used to it (eh Marsha)!! (We live pretty close to each other)! I keep saying we are living in Death Valley as where I live it is called the Fraser Valley!
Anyway, I sure hope you are doing ok!
Jane P. thank you, those words are beautiful and truthful and I appreciate reading them.
Dear Theresa, I;m sorry you fell and hurt your knee, I know that kind of thing can be scary and naturally it just triggers the feelings of being afraid, alone and sad:( I am glad it wasn't so much worse for you.
I have a good friend who lost her husband in March. One of her chief things she said was she is so busy, that there is so much to do. I asked her if she was making extra work for herself so she wouldn't have to be alone with her thoughts, because sitting alone and thinking is darnright scary and overwhelming for us. It's a good thing to be busy, we all need to be productive and feel like we are contributing but I do believe there is a limit, which we should impose on ourselves. We do need to take care of us during grieving and it sounds like you have placed so much pressure on yourself Theresa. Did you ever go on that vacation/retreat you spoke about? I think you need a few days just to relax and recoup.
Just my thoughts - I will let Marsha weigh in when she can:)
