As today brings to you afresh the memories of your life with your beloved Ken, and time plays its bizarre tricks of making the past present, I know Ken is staying close and loving you as he always will. He'll see you through today,…"
"Hi Mary Jane, and everyone -
Steve and I are pretty well, although for slightly over a week we both felt symptoms that could have been colds, mild flu, or possible the new Covid variant Omicron, at least as those symptoms for vaccinated folks…"
Just a quick "Hello" to let you know how much my heart smiled when I read your post - not just for what you said, but for knowing that you are well and still following us here.
Even if you are behind in reading or keeping up,…"
"Dear Mary Jane,
I always greatly appreciate your humor, honesty, and insights you share with us - I am drawing much strength and balance from the reawakening of conversation here, and I do feel I need it.
Good for you that you had a great Christmas…"
"Dear Mary Jane,
As always you have mentioned several things that really hit home with me. Yesterday I had a 2 hr phone call with a cousin who lost her partner this year. She's emotionally fragile anyway, and now Christmas is awakening so…"
"Dear Mary Jane,
I am so sorry that you thought you were unwelcome here, for any reason. I too felt at times that when I posted, suddenly everything fell silent. This led me to wonder much the same as you - did I say something that offended…"
I got to start the day with a chuckle because of your comment about looking for fog from your breath on the bathroom mirror to see if you're still here. A lady I met a few years ago always answered the question of how she was with…"
Thank you Diane C for waking up this site again. Hi to Todd, Chicago Beard, Sara, Trina, Marsha, and any other long time members out there. I too wonder how you're all doing and hope silence indicates positive things in your…"
"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…"
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?
