"I am trying too! I think part of it is that food became such an emotional subject during my husbands later stages of cancer. Having my son home from college makes me cook more but like you salads and soups are a staple for now."

"Good for you Princess Warrior Widow. I find exercise really helps, it is healthy eating I struggle with. Cooking has lost its joy!"

"Phenix, The holidays are hard especially when you have traditions. When the past is too hard and the future too scary and empty the best place for me to be is in the present. Sometimes I just do the next 15 minutes. Sending a hug!"
