I also agree - this website has helped me keep in touch with like minded people, knowing tomorrow can be better and if not it's okay to feel what I feel and still look forward to tomorrow.  Thanks everybody and I will try to look at the holiday season as a time I can be with friends and relatives and not all about missing someone who was in my life.......

you're right - I think this year I will be putting out a lot more Christmas stuff, this time it's for me.  And as far as friends invites go, some of them are new people.  there were past associates I had to let go of (not good for me anymore) and those that let go of me.  I am trying to look at it all as transitions, and a new chapter I will make the most of.

Yes, "friends" who care only about themselves move on and we must be open to new doors opening and they will open sooner or later.  I lost a sister/neighbor/"friend" who failed to appreciate my circumstances so I have reached out to more positive/upbeat peeps who relate to me

My roses  20th October  Yes I get songs from Wes with special meaning. Often I do not know the songs, but I  feel I should turn the radio on and there is a message for me.
