Just want to take the time to thank everyone for responding/commenting the past few posts when I was so worried about the insurance issue. Dan was kind enough to say it is not necessary to comment back. But I have always been so grateful for those interested in me and my life that I want to acknowledge you. I've been a bit overwhelmed with having gone back to work - my free time has kind of vanished!
Kelly - I know you have had a lot on your plate and I am always glad to hear from you because we seem to be on the same wave length. I hope all is calm at your end with the death of the boys' grandfather. This must be a tough time for you so please let me know how you're doing. And thanks for checking up on me!
Anonymous widowed for almost a year - It was very nice of you to comment about my insurance worries and I hope you're holding up and doing okay.
Vanessa - I always appreciate your practical and useful comments.
Dan - I enjoy hearing from you because of the affinity I feel with you with both of us working in the social services arena.
wNs - What can I say? I often think of you and tonight did so when I saw the moon. I am honored that a woman of your artistic creativity and intelligence reads about my life and offers heartfelt comments.
Melaka - I was very struck by your story of your husband losing his parents and his job loss. In the end, I agree, there are times we must do what is right at that time. There will be other jobs in our lives to replace those we may have lost but people are not replaceable. You offered good advice about taking each day as it comes and letting life unfold without our trying to always control it.
Jude - It is always great to hear from you and I like your real warmth and honesty.
Thelma - You always offer a lot of encouragement to me and inspire me to keep going.
Beth - I always appreciate the support you offer me for the decisions I've made on behalf of my sons.
CCC - I have appreciated learning about your personal experiences and you always offer a dose of inspiration and strength.
Again, I thank each of you. You've provided me with a great deal of support that would otherwise be absent in my life and I am grateful for you all!
