Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

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

Wow, what a really neat Father's Day...I assume lots of photo memories of that, eh?

Lovely here now, after a pouring rain start at 6:30 a. m.  I love when the weather people are this direction, anyway!!

Hi Lynne, Happy First Day of Summer! We were so lucky today with the weather. It was a given that it was going to rain all day and it was sunny and at this moment the sky is blue and not a cloud to be seen. We spent the afternoon celebrating father's day with my father in law. We had 4 generations going from 1 to 88. Gotta enjoy while we can. Hugs to all and prayers to Addie.

Greetings to Rocket, Linda and Barb!

Are you closer to your son, now. Barb or did you stay where you were?

Cynthia...very sorry to read of Addie's recent problems.  She is a fighter, for sure, and I send you all my best wishes.

Hi Barbara,   It sounds like you made your move at just the right time!!

A ground floor apartment gives you some lovely options, like your flower garden...yippy!

I know that I'm sure enjoying not having the responsibilities of a house!

Hugssssss...... Helen

Wow Barbara. Your experience reminds me of my downsize move and the shivers I get just thinking about it. I am glad that you are in a place where you can enjoy without having to take care of everything yourself. Choices we all have to make at some time. Keep us posted on your surgery. Be well, Linda

Hi everyone I don't come on here much anymore, but when I got a letter from Cynthia about her grandchild, I thought I'd better check in.  I don't know if I told you all I had to move because I couldn't keep the place and my beloved gardens up any more. so I moved into a ground floor apartment where all the maintenance and gardens are looked after for you.  trouble was I asked If I could bring mine with me, so I did. and everything took.   The move and looking after both houses took more out of me than I imagined.  The other one is now sold and the new people have moved in and my garden at the new place is all alive. Now I'm just trying to get the inside done.  I have been waiting until my housekeeper comes to  do most stuff, but I find my energy isn't nearly what it was.  also I found out I have to have a knee and both hips replaced.I'm waiting until I have this place prepared so I can manage by myself, so I have to get things all unpacked and put where I can get at them easily.  That's my news for now.  I have some time this afternoon and I'll go back and read up on all your goings on .  Hugs to you all.
