Some days, if I just don't let myself look back, I can forget all that has happened. But then May comes along and the memories of the lack of help, overwhelming stress, heartbreak at seeing Michael so ill, missing having time by his side as I tried to 'do it all and please all' instead of anyone around me looking to cover and care for me...without directions...just hits me.

Thanks for being a friend. The hardest thing was watching my wife get sicker by the day and not being able to help her. We tried what we thought was best,but in the end the cancer won out. She put up a good fight for quite a while,a tough lady for sure.

Good morning TimetoFly - thanks for the friend request! We didn't have much of a chance to talk last night or learn each other's stories. This site has saved my life in so many ways and it's wonderful to have friends that really understand.  I look forward to talking more.  You can just call me Julie, and if you don't mind - what is your name?  Atown Julie

Jer 29:11 has also been special to me knowing that God STILL has plans for my life!! It's great the legal battle was resolved & that takes a load off you! And the "GOOD NEWS" about Michael--AWESOME!! Pray works--without ceasing....I'm glad for your permission to GO DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR MYSELF". I WILL---IT is such a comfort KNOWING Where John IS
