This board is made up of the most caring people I have ever met all in one place. I had hoped this would be a better year but so far it isn't for me right now. I am praying you all have a great year and don't have any crisis to deal with. Thank You all for being YOU.
Aww aren't you sweet!...and I agree the ladies here are the greatest! Hugs and prayers for you Lumpy Tush!

It's not an easy road, Lumpy. I lost my DH seven years ago and it seems like just yesterday. In time,your tears will dry and your sorrow will turn into wonderful memories of the years you spent together.
I consider myself very lucky to have been married to a perfect man for almost 30 years. Many women never find such happiness...
Bless your heart! I can't imagine what you're going thru but remember when you can..smile at the memories of your beloved DH. Sometimes it'll be a watery smile. Laugh when you can..maybe at a memory of something your husband said or did. And yes, cry when you have to & want to.
Remembering how our friends here comforted me when my Mom died has helped me cope. They'll help you too.
Much love, many thought & prayers. Gina

Thank you all. When DD goes home the first of the month I just don't know what I am going to do. Bug you all I supose LOL. I have lots of moving around to do to make room for a room mate. We have been friends for 31 years so I have no doubt I will make it. I just have to be careful not to become a hermit. Please Please have your papers done and your ducks in a row. Had I not made DH go do that a while ago I would be in hot water now. I leaned that when my brother passed away a couple years ago. He had his all done so I had very little trouble taking care of everything and helping his DD with her first funeral. Thank you all for being there.
Hugs, and more hugs...and postive thoughts and prayers for postive things to start happening in your life!
There are so many wonderful ladies here on the board, which I am proud to call my friend! Theres always such love and support no matter what we are going through in our lives...quilters truly know the meaning of the term ~in sickness and in health~
I to believe in having things taken care of...I was insulted by a few family members and told I was being morbid and too young to think of such nonsense...DH being the sweet, caring man he is, quickly snapped back..."How can her trying to be helpful and make things easier for her loved ones, even after she has gone be morbid? Get your head on straight"!...times like that, I don't miss my family all that much and am glad I moved to Australia...other times I still miss them and love them faults and all
" Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.. "
