Have been texting and calling my new galpal every day and we have made a nice connection .My feelings for my HW family couldn't be deeper or more profound  , life is pretty goodsave my pain and inability to walk well .And its these physical challenges that has given me the positive things i just listed ! How weird ?I needed suffering to trancend in order to find myself , I now know what challenges add to your life , character and depth , or isolation and withdrawl . I lived in the latter until pain brought me to the former  . wow .It bought me here as well where I learned about friendship , coping , caring and being supportive . Thank you , mikel  P.S. I wanted to write some good news too !

Hi Mike,

I really enjoyed what you wrote. Very heart-felt. I wanted to give to the SPCA or something with animals too, money is sorta funny right now, but I too share a love of animals. Hope you have a nice Easter too!

Taking it one day at a time....

First, you are one of the nicest people I "know" :) Honestly. Second, what's this about a galpal??? :) I'm happy for you!!

Last, I totally get what you are saying about having to go through trials to get where you are now.

I'm glad you've had a good day today. I've had a better day, too.
