    Hi all,  I was going to start a new thread for the new year, but once again I need to ask for prayers.  I am on my way to Cleveland Clinic today.  This is a very good hospital, and I am grateful for that.  My brother, who has an aneurism in his aorta is having tests today.  If the tests go well, he will have surgery tomorrow.  I am feeling better and am feeling much more optimistic.

    Dear (((icandothis)))! I’m thinking of you and your brother, and hoping that the tests go well and that your brother can have his surgery. Carole

    Hi (((ican))) just catching up on your thread and I am so sorry that you have been through so much.  So happy that your brother is through his surgery.  You really have had a rough time of it and have pushed yourself to do things when you were probably emotionally distraught and not allowing yourself to feel the pain.   I deal with sick children not on a daily basis, but I remember one of the children passing away, and I said to the doctor I don’t know how you deal with it.  What she said always struck with me "if you don’t feel the pain then you don’t feel the joy".   We have to allow ourselves to feel the pain of grieving for a loved one and not try and bury it.  I will remember you in my prayers.One day at a time my sweet lord…

    That was a pretty pricey fix for your car!  Hope that’s the end of car troubles for you.  My car is getting old and I worry about repairs coming up but I don’t want car payments either!

    I have been struggling for some words to give so many of you who are struggling.  I love words, but I am at a loss.  Please don’t give up is all I can think of…

    Happiness Project Update:  January..was able to excerise at least 4 days a week and continuing it into February.  Also, seemed to be on an organization frenzie…cleaned out my ******, dresser, refrigerator, kitchen cabinets, 1/2 of the basement (still A work in progress)  February..what resolutions to make?  Thought about Love as the theme.  Ended up thinking that the most important person to love is myself….so I made this month’s theme Acts of Kindness to Myself.  Funny thing:  Haven’t followed through on one thing…

    Dear (((icandothis)))! I had to laugh out loud when I read our description of the concert, because I have experienced that with my granddaughter. She wanted me to drive her and her friend to a "MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE" concert in the city, so I agreed to go with them. The first band that played was so incredibly loud that even putting my fingers in my ears didn’t even make the noise level something tolerable. Every single song sounded like screaming and before their set was over, I told my granddaughter that I would wait for them in the car, so I never heard the band we had come to see. I don’t think I missed much to be honest! The things we do for our kids and grandkids!! Great that you choose the haircut over the casino! Who knows what could have happened had you not!! Carole
