Hi Ladies!

Happy Mothers Day!

You gals Rock! I cannot tell you how important you are in the fight against prostate cancer. I lost my mom to cancer two years ago. But she made me feel better in the darkest days of my life before she left us. And I see it here all the time! You moms, you daughters, you loved ones, you sisters. When I see you post here at HW I see the love that makes us guys fight, cope, accept, and thrive...

May God bless you and peace always be with you.

'Specially on your day!

Tony

Thanks Tony and Not Hard ... hope all you moms out there have an absolutely wonderful day! Here in the NYC area, there's alot of wind making the temperatures feel like winter out there - in fact, there's a frost warning posted tonight for areas north and west of The City (that's us!).

Sweet words, made me smile and feel important.  Thanks! 
I forget sometimes I am helping even when it does not feel like it.  Feelings just can't be trusted. They come and go just like circumstances.  Enjoy the day or the moment or the just the hope that "this, too, shall pass"  .
