I'm so sorry for your and your DH's loss. I think we are given gifts in life, but a more important gift is to be able to recognize them. Not everyone does. I'm glad you do.
I, too, hope for a less eventful 2006. Right now I just want stability (except of course I'll be looking at houses, moving's no biggie, is it???????)
I have this saying on a bumper sticker on the Mustang: It's not on the new Rav, so one of my patients made a wooden sign of it for me: This is for all of us:
Dance like nobody's watching
Work like you don't need the money
Love like you've never been hurt.
