Just letting all the "oldies" know I am still lurking and reading. Just have not felt like there is much I can add anymore. I do know that I have been struggling a little with my depression and so that to keeps me in hiding. Just wanted to let you all know I still love ya and think of you often. Hope all is well.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Randy!!!!! I'm glad you checked in. I've been wondering how things were with you. I hope that you can get to feeling more like yourself soon. I have been trying not to get down myself with all that has been going on. My thoughts are with you!

Hi Randy! I didn't forget you, or this forum, but have been AWOL myself lately. I'll write an update soon and also an explanation of why I have resigned as a moderator, but for now I just want to let you know that I am praying that you feel better soon. Be good to yourself! You deserve it.
Take care. Lois

Glad to hear it, Randy.
However, I'm a bit concerned if you are THAT depressed. are you on any meds for it? Or getting any counseling?
