Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

You're right Linda, It's been a few years since we last heard from John. I don't know if we all received a note from Jean, but I know I did.

There seem to be two different threads or groups that aren't connected.   I got a couple of messages on the other one over the past day or two......

I'm confused!!!!   Can anyone figure this out?

Also.... Are we suppose to comment here above the last post or at the bottom???   Sighhhhhhh

Wow Linda!!!   What excitement there is in your family!!

Cheers to you ALL!!!!!

Hi Jean,

Glad to have you join the group. I find it really comforting to chat with others who have traveled the same path. This Easter was easier than previous years although I am not sure why. It will be six years in July. Maybe because I was having the family over for Easter dinner yesterday. My granddaughter brought her boyfriend over and they are a lovely couple. My 43 year old daughter is ready to give birth to her "surprise" third child. She is bursting at the seams and very ready to have this little girl!

Today, I enjoyed Sunday service at church and am now relaxing.

Happy Easter everyone.  I will be going out to my dil's parents for dinner at 1:00.  The kids are only coming up for the day so her mom decided to have it early.

I got my new computer installed and up and running today.  What a difference from XP.  I am going to be calling the person who did all the work on Mon because there are a few things that I can't find.  Like my address book in my e-mail.  There is supposed to be an icon on the desktop that is a shortcut to open e-mail but I can't find that either.  It's going to take a while to get used to but I'm going to have fun playing around with it to see how everything works.

I think I missed a bunch of postings because what I have stopped at last Wed and then they start again in mid-April.

Hello Jean,

Welcome to the group. My sympathies on the death of your husband. Even though it's been 10 years (the same for me), the memories linger on, don't they.

We share our experiences and try to support each other.

Special holiday/holy day times are often the most difficult to cope with.

They've got a lot of good talent over there.

I'm going out too BC by myself Cynthia, my friends are already out there.  Going out together might be doable. I always do the assisted thing when I travel with all my back trouble.  I can't lift bags. and I can limp if  I need to. I've been thinking about that and the fact that there would be a ticket going to waste.  We can talk about that later when I know better what I'm doing. 

Rocket the pictures they are sending back are fantastic.  I can't post any of them because they are all copyrighted. But later I'll post a couple of mine using the techniques they taught me.

Night everyone.
