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 a VERB, a HAPPENING, a MYSTICAL CONNECTION???

Started by John Syme. Last reply by John Syme Jul 29, 2011. 11 Replies

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

Hi Ladies,

I don't think there is any activity. I am still dealing with my stuff. At least my father in law is much better. My mother in law just celebrated her 88th.

I am so happy that it is finally warming up. Hugs everyone!

Hi Pat,

Hope that everything is going well for you!

Cheers!!

I haven't been checking or posting lately because I'm not getting notice about any posts.  When I do try to post, it never shows up.  I got an awful shock today when I logged on to find that there were about 8 pages of posts.  The reason I came on today was because I was going to unsubscribe and then sign-up again with different info to see if that worked.

I have had this problem for over a year now.  I have it set to send me notices but as soon as I log-off it turns that off but when I turn it back on it goes back to FOLLOW again.  I have gotten a new lap-top since I got the last message (last Sept) so it will be interesting to see if this message appears.

I do check FaceBook every day. If you want to keep in touch please feel free to friend me. Hugs, Linda

Oh my goodness Linda!!!

You sure have your hands full!!!!   Life can sure come up and hit us in the face when we're least expecting it, eh.   My sincere condolences my friend.

I seem to be in FaceBook a lot but just with my friends.  I've had a very busy winter, and will be heading back to Thunder Bay at the end of April.   I'm very seriously considering making a permanent move to British Columbia next winter.

Warm hugsss Linda.... Please take care of yourself!!

Hi ladies,

I can only say that my daily routine has completely changed. I am helping my daughter manage the needs of my senior in laws. FIL has some ongoing issues and they are both pushing 90 so they are in the struggle of independence balanced with needs. After my friend passed away, so did my mom and my aunt, her younger sister. I am either full of adrenaline or tired. One or the other. Are people going on another Zoomer site? I'd like to keep in touch but I am not posting much anywhere these days. Hugs, Linda

Hi Cynthia,

Sad isn't it!!   I guess everything has it's time.  There continue to be newly widowed folks, but they're not seeking out this site.

I'm not sure what to suggest, but if you abolish this site, anyone who is interested in keeping in touch, my email address is shiprec44@hotmail.com

Cheers!!   Helen

Well do you think that this site should be abolished. No contacts or over 6 weeks????

Comment by Rocketship on February 4, 2015 at 6:58pm

So glad that all went well Linda l!!!

Hugssss.....

Hi Ladies,

Everything went really well. The friends from church attended en masse, the pastor and assistant pastor were very encouraging and inspirational. The funeral home went out of their way to facilitate everything. We definitely celebrated her life. Now that I am on the other side of all this, I realize that I have been mourning her for the past 7 months while she had her ups and downs in the hospital. Enough about that topic.

I am sure your daughter in law will be thrilled with her hand-made sweater especially now!

Keep us posted on your son's progress. Thank God for modern medicine however... hugs, Linda
