Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

The antisapation of yesterday was worse than actually living thru the day!
Than you all for your words of encouragement and prayers.
Today is day one of my new year
Comment by Charles E. Nelson yesterday
I just added a photo for Mark and Steve - you're surrounded by angels today.

Thank you, your prayers are felt. I made Thanksgiving dinner as if it were just he and me here, I enjoyed this day because I did not feel alone or sad. I remembered all of our good times together along with all the stories we all share with each other.
One of those stories was about someone who likes elephants, I now have a picture forever in my mind of little girl peting an elephant while it was playing with her hair. Makes me smile every time -
Tomorrow will be the end of my first year without Mark and today I am good, thanks to all of God's angels on this site. God is still taking care of me and He will get me thru tomorrow, we can give thanks for today and let tomorrow take care of itself.
Hugs to all my family on this site!

Hello everyone, I had two friends here on Thanksgiving, and in my prayer I thanked God for leading me to you all - I don't know how I would have made it through the past month without your understanding and beautiful shared stories of your loved ones. Thank you for the kind encouragement of my writing, as it is so healing for me to put our stories in words and share them with the hope that they may do some good. I will continue to write and derive strength from your warm embrace. A special prayer for Steve tomorrow - you and Mark are in my thoughts. Marsha, yesterday I followed a tradition Larry and I observed by starting our "Holiday Movie Marathon" during which we watched all our favorites with Holiday themes, or that just were about Love. I started this year with "Love Actually", and though seeing it through copious tears, I felt Larry's love all around me, and it was good.
Hugs to all,

Dear Georgia ...  Carol is right, you are starting a new tradition and I know it's not easy.  Even after 5 years of missing my beloved Ernie, I find it difficult to watch movies he loved, music, etc.  It brings back the memories.  Thankfully, in time the memories aren't so intense and I consider myself lucky that I met my true love and had those memories to keep.

I am so proud of you for even going to the movies.  It will get easier.

Georgia, yes it's so hard and yet we do adapt (even though we'd rather not)to new traditions and do I think it's good that you and your family have started a new one. Look at it this way, you went to see Creed, what guided you there, maybe your husband:)

Comment by georgia on Friday
Hello everyone, thank you for all the good wishes.
In the pass we always had a large group of freinds and family for Thanksgiving, since I lost my Husband , I simply can not do it.
This is the third Thanksgiving with out him physically here.
We miss him so much.
This year we started a new tradition after dinner we headed for the movies . We saw Creed it was excellent.
But I cried because Louie loved Rocky movies.
I like to THANK EACH and Every ONE of you for all the support.
God Bless.
Comment by Steve on Thursday
