Super topic Karen and I love the title. You are so right..................we have to let go of the sad and live in the moment.
Right now I am in my HealigWell mode and from here off to take a short nap with my dog who is barking for me. She is like a baby. How I love her.
I wish you peace,

Hi Karen, I know what you mean about the fall. It is my favorite time of the year. I have a birthday in Nov and we have Thanksgiving and Xmas. I know it will be less in terms of gifts but I have already spoken to my sons about it, that gifts will be only a few but we all agreed that the most important thing is that we are together and sharing hapiness with each other. I think that is important for all of us to realize that it is family and friends that make occasions special,being together. I was wallking my other dog today, (don't know if I mentioned I had 2 dogs, 1 now) anyway we went for a walk to look at the changing colors of the trees which are especially nice this year. As I was walking, a neighbor from another street was outside and I said hello and she stopped me as we had never met before. She is elderly and was outside with her husband and we had the nicest chat. It made me feel so good to meet someone new and she was so friendly. I think I will walk the dog more often on that street. So that is my good news for the day - I met a new friend. Hope others will respond with good thoughts. I have reached a better frame of mind recently so am feeling more positive about life in general.
Karen, this is so wonderful that I had to bring it up to the top again.
Thank you for posting it...........
There is goodness and kindness out in the real world, we just have to know where to look. I always say hello and make eye contact to people walking down the street alone and now I really have my smile ready for people that enter the elevator alone at the hospital. I am in a cancer hospital and maybe my "Hello, how are you?" will make them feel less alone.
My sister was admitted again last night to the hospital with a high fever and her blood count bottomed out from chemo. We did have a good time during my stay at the Hope Lodge with her.
So we make memories and count our blessings. I love to rub her bald fuzzy head..........and she laughs. Bless her heart.
I wish you peace,Kitt
