"Mac, what a beautiful picture of Cindy these answers paint! What a happy home life she must have created.
Not sure of the origin of this quote, but it came to mind as I was reading:
"The best thing a girl can be is a good wife and…"
"Mac, I wish there were words to make sense of these WTF moments that can creep upon us without a trigger. Grief is an unrelentless visitor who comes without an invite. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as you weather this storm."
"Dianne....please disregard my previous comment with questions concerning the workshops. I cut and pasted pages to reduce them for quick reference at camp and mixed up the days when pasting! I am clear now on the workshops. Sorry for…"
"Dianne, Has the Saturday morning workshop titled "Energetic Tune-up: A Chakra Cleansing and Attunement" by Katrin Naumann been cancelled? I thought I signed up for it but it is no longer listed. Also, is the "Traveling…"

"Wow...79 blogs...how awesome, Fred. Always reflective, always something to ponder and grow from. Now...I have been wondering for a while and now I will ask..."Why the iconic shoe with each post?" Love them, but just wondering if they have…"
"Joy, this is absolutely beautiful...it expresses all that I believe and is the reason I have been able to find acceptance and peace in my husband's departure from this world to God's kingdom. Like you, I will always miss my…"
"Mac, I have always found that helping others helps us to heal. Sadly, there are many people who rely solely on the charity of others for their basic needs. I am glad that you found a charity that you trust will find a suitable place for…"
I am so sorry for your loss yet I am glad you found us. You will find some great help here on the site and the relationships you will build with all of the great people here. We are all on the other side of life now and only we can really understand how you feel. I am on chat quiet often and it is scary and overwhelming at times in the beginning. I would like to offer a bit of assistance when you are ready use the chat room. 1. I always advise you watch for a bit, the room gets busy sometimes and hard to follow at first. 2. You will see some joking and even laughter, you will also see tears and breakdowns. The people here are here to support and be supported by peers. 3. Looking at the chat you will see that the left window has a sliding bar that tells you who is online (they may be on another part of the site though) 4. If you click on a name in the side bar this should open up a private chat or PC as we call it. 5. I f you receive a PC a red # will show under the main lobby with the name and icon of the person it is from or if you sent it to someone 6. Your first entry: This is hit or miss, it really depends on when you jump in if lots of folks are chatting you can easily get missed. I recommend just saying Hi I am new and give whatever info you want (hi I am Arnie From NJ and today I am 3 months and 3 days out) this way if others are from NJ they may want to know more. 7. BE READY: Ok once you do go into the lobby be ready as the questions are needed and they are sometimes gentile, sometimes the questions fly at you. Please take your time here as if this is new for you this may open you up emotionally, and it is normal to feel this and from what i am told a needed part of trying to begin to live again. 8. Most people on the chat are women as of now but the men that are involved are very respectful and sometimes fun. 9. Remember almost no one knew each other until they came here. 10. Good luck and I sent you a friend request, lets face it near or far we need support, and with so many from around the world there is almost always someone on. ALSO using internet explorer is problematic with chat so Firefox appears to be the best..
I hope this long winded letter helps you in the beginning and again SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.
