Justing adding my welcome. I wish I had some wonderful insight to help you through this time in your life. I have been there myself and know that it is important to know that I will travel in whatever direction I am facing. It sounds like you are facing a great direction so keep traveling that path because it sounds like peace is at the end of it. Let us know how things are going.
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.
