Hi there - hope today was a little better for you and Stella.

I'm usually checking in when I have my morning coffee and at night. The room with the computer also has a TV so I can multi task and not just sit and watch TV as I find it to be something I need to do each day. Checking this forum and another one to stay up to date is as important as my daily e-mailing. We may not know each other but the common bond that ties us together is important to help cope and deal with this as well as hoping to be of support to others too.

Maybe over time it may slow up a bit for others who have so many demands on their time once they are able to start living & enjoying their lives and taking care of their families and don't have the time to devote here. And that is certainly ok as I am sure the complexion of these forums keep changing too.

But in the meantime it is so comforting to know these forums are here and available when one needs them.

Many blessings,

I know it has helped me, my husband and my sanity for the past 5-6 years.
