Hello! - It was hard to read here

gatsbylandMay 9, 2005

Hello everyone,

My husband and I have decided we need some kind of internet at home. We do so much bill paying and banking on-line and are SO busy we agreed to go with an inexpensive connection. I wanted to check on everyone.

I have to admit, it was very difficult to read most of your posts. John and I have really made strides in moving on from caregiving. We feel our lives are returning to normal and have been able to embrace life again. To read and then remember what you all are going through is difficult. It certainly took me back.

You are all doing an indescribable job. You all deserve so much. People who have never done this really do not understand. My heart goes out to you all and you remain in my prayers. You deserve to hear every day of your life, many times a day that you are wonderful, self-less people. Perhaps that's my role here now - to stop by and make sure you all "hear" the appreciation you deserve. God Bless you all.

With Much Love, Respect and Understanding,

I agree....and it is so appreciated Tina, to know others understand, no one knows unless they do it daily, year after year, but one thing we can all say that have done it or are doing it, is that ,we provide ,love care, and most important....ourselves to loved ones until they pass on. Thank you Tina....for the kind words...my MIL paases on Feb 8th....but I never regreted the care...now that I look back. I didn't want it, however, but God seen me through it to the end, what a wonderful caring individual he is ....Gabby

Hi Tina... What a joy to hear from you! I thought about your boys, too. Are they both in school this year? I imagine you're looking forward to summer and having a great time together. I pray your dad is still doing well and John has settled into his new position. It's always difficult to adjust to change! :) God bless you and your loved ones. ~breezy
