Going Through Some Tough Times, Too
I don't want to distract or take away from Yachter's post, but thought I'd at at least let you know that, although I haven't been posting lately, I have been back occasionally to read posts and soothe my heart. Lately, I've been experiencing another group of sad events. My parents, now in their early 80's have been having some health issues and I was down in the Tampa area with them for a week recently. While there, a good friend's one day old daughter passed on unexpectedly, which shook everybody up a lot. And, a very dear and close friend was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which is an extremely bad sort to have. All's well with myself, DH, DS and DD, though, so I'm counting my blessings where I can.
Please know that, like Yachter, reading your posts and seeing your wonderful creations is a joy I cherish.
