Gee thanks Ellen (Wicket),
It is so nice to know friends are always around to support us in our time of LOSS! A moment of silence for the Tigers..... Has nothing to do with prostate cancer but those poor boys sure couldn't get their bats up this series. Just not pumped up I guess
On a more appropriate note...We've passed the 18 month mark and all is well. Paul has been very fortunate and we've managed to escape some of the traitional trials while finding remedy to those left behind more than a decade ago.
We do belong to a couple of other forums but I have to say, this one is by far the most expressive and positive group on the web. I will be forever grateful for the mentoring and warmth that always greets us.
Everything is a test and while there are always answers, we don't always like nor appreciate the messages, we learn from them none the less. They say wisdom comes with age. I think not. Wisdom comes from trials, errors and finally understanding that we are ultimately in control of one sure thing...our faith....faith in our God, faith in his creations and the ability to accept what is and still love.
Often times, what we perceive to be different is still same. The package may seem different but the we've all been given never changes. Life is a lot of gifts wrapped over and over in different colors and different textures. Each time I open this forum I open a gift wrapped in the colors and textures of life, of Gods creations. I sometimes get a laugh, shed a tear or feel the joy for an other as you all pass over mile stones we've already tripped over ourselves. I can't think of any group of people I would rather have stumbled through this last year with than you all Thanks and Be Well,
