artpainter, you are too sweet - there aren't too many people out there anymore who are as caring as you are. I'm so glad you are finding some peace and trusting in the universe. I try. Sometimes I don't worry about
things and trust that everything will be okay no matter what happens, other times the fear creeps in and takes over. I much prefer the feeling of trust and peace over fear, but it's hard sometimes.
I'm still in pain today but don't know if I can take another day of laying around at home. I might take some pain meds and venture out with the family and see if that helps to lift my spirits some.
I didn't realize until recently that you live in Colorado. I lived there for 4 years a long time ago. When I graduated from high school I wanted to go experience life before going to college, so I ventured out to Colorado. I lived in both Breckenridge and Telluride. I lived in Telluride when it was a quiet little hippy town before the rich and famous discoverd it. I just worked to be able to afford to live and did a lot of hiking, skiing and self discovery. We try to take a family vacation to Colorado every year - the mountains and the climate are very healing to me. Every so often we talk about
relocating, but it is so expensive to live in CO now.
Thanks for all of your kind thoughts. Wishing you a wonderful day.
