"Hello Mary Jane,
I've missed so much the conversations here, always finding some common topic or experience that reassures me that my emotional reactions to certain occurrences aren't "out of line".
I've been avoiding…"
I just saw your post last night and am hoping that you took the trip with your family. Seeing the Fall colors along with seeing the family farm would be heavenly for me - I would practically give my arm to see the leaves in Mass. and…"
I really appreciated your sharing of your insights into the dreams you've had and how they reflected your feelings about Ernie. I always learn something about myself from you every time you post - you have such a fantastic way with…"
"Hi Mary Jane,
I had to comment on your morning routine, as I have one myself - depending on how early I get up, either the local birds are just appearing in the yard for breakfast served by yours truly, or if I'm a dirty sleep-in, they are…"
I'm playing catch-up again - as Judy Collins sang (too long ago) "Who knows where the time goes?"
I'm sorry about the loss of your father-in-law, but as you say he is with Ken and they both watch over you and all your…"
I'm sorry yesterday got by me without posting this to you - I had a note by my desktop but it got shuffled under other papers.
7 years without Joseph must seem like an eternity. I lost Larry 6 years ago last April and that seemed…"
Yes DJ, it is great! I had often wanted to share something but Trina described my feelings to a "T" - I was afraid of offending someone unwittingly. Also on the nose is Trina's description of walking around in the world…"
I too am glad to see so many familiar names back, and hope others may let us know how they are (this means you Sara).
Steve has said how we are doing, so I will address Deborah's question because it struck a nerve with me. I…"
I'm sorry to hear about your mother in the hospital. I hope it is a short stay and am glad she can have visitors. Still, having to visit where you lost Ken is I know heartbreaking for you. Your strength is again tested with each…"
Thank you for your kind words and for thinking of us - it was indeed an ordeal here in Texas, and as Steve said we were very lucky in that we only lost power for two brief periods the first night. I was still awake, and with the dire…"
I am finally reading the piece you shared about life being like a train ride. I too find it to be a very pleasant way to view our time here. I also thank you, and all of my Legacy family, for being on my train, or rather for saving…"
"Hello dear family,
I ask a rhetorical question, because I know the answer for all my Legacy family is “yes”.
Have you had a thought – a memory – so completely and unexpectedly overtake you that you temporarily lost…"
A friend who is a nurse in a Dallas hospital send this message to me, and I am sharing it here as my New Year's greeting for those who haven't seen it somewhere already.
Steve's surgery on New Year's Eve went…"
I'm sorry you are having a hard time now - you are right that many of us are feeling as you do, myself included. The constant background drumbeat of losses to Covid and the way it has forced us into isolation exacerbates my…"
Just wanted to let you know that Steve is fine and his surgery went very well. We actually had a very pleasant day at the hospital, 100% due to the caring compassionate nursing staff who recognized us and went above and beyond…"
Hi Chuck. I hope this works. I am still not familiar with my IPad...I was soooo happy with my XP...but then I had to get a new Windows 7.5 or 8 or whatever it was, and finally had to switch to wifi...(I knew it was just a way for Big Brother to watch you LOL...yes I am an x hippie...hope that doesn,t bother you. And, no, I could not afford an IPad..when Bob got sick, my daughters boss Bought me this! Her father had died of cancer, but she was able to FaceTime him across the miles b4 he died and she wanted to do the same for my daughter. Ironically he died the next day after it arrived and we never got to use it.
I am going to make each of my posts short so if I loose them here, I won,t have poured my heart out for nothing.
I HAVE to tell you why I chose YOU to befriend...it was your PICTURE! I am guessing that is you and Larry? I took one look at that picture and to me, it looked EXACTLY like one of those pictures that come with a frame you buy in the store. It was wonderful. Which person are u? You will have to excuse me if I get information wrong...I have a very hard time focusing on who is who. Steve is your new love, right?
You can swear all you want with me. I don,t care. Words only have power if u let them. Ok I am going to see if this posts..if it does, I will send u a second post about who I am than you for responding.
Hi Chuck. Thinking about you. Haven't seen any posts from you recently which has me worried. I'm aware you have health issues but if you're able to, please check in. I'm sending extra prayers your way.
Chuck,Sorry to hear of your losses as well,especially last April of your husband.We all share similar feelings and I'm glad that I've found this group,I can say whatever may be on my mind without judgment and even if no one responds,it's good to release it.Some people/ family don't know what to say so I usually respond with I'm ok when anyone asks.elyse sister of Lee 6/13/59-5/28/14.I posted on the main wall a suggestion of each member posting this at end,so we can send a remembrance to each other,I thought it was a nice gesture,what do you think?
