Janet, thank you for befriending me.  I have to go get some breakfast now, but I look forward to getting to know you, here.  So sorry about the loss of your husband.  I hope your day is peaceful.  I live a few hours east of San Diego, but won't be going to the Camp.  As you are driving, maybe if you guys want you could come out and visit, though it's terribly hot in the desert where I live (117° today and tomorrow, for instance...). Maybe we could meet up the hill in Julian, a mountain town with more reasonable temperatures.  Anyway, even if not, I look forward to knowing you.

Hi Janet,

I didn't realize you weren't on my friends list, i don't know how I overlooked that!  Oh yeah, we can blame everything on widow brain!

I hope our trip we talked about this afternoon will work out, it will be the adventure of a lifetime!

I just read your post on the boy that wanted to meet God.  It was beautiful, and the message is so true.  Little gestures mean so much to those that are hurting.  i have experienced that, and hope that I have given that.

Hi Janet, did you receive the personal email message I sent you with several specific ideas? I believe you are having trouble using the site, and we can help with that. Please reply. Thanks!

HI, Janet, You are only my second friend here.  I work (I am a Legal Aid lawyer) and have a 10 year old, so I have the opposite problem of trying to find some down time.  You sound like you have some great skills that would be very helpful to some nonprofit organizations doing all kinds of great work.  I was in private practice for about 20 years before I left and went to Legal Aid to provide free legal services to poor people.  It is very satisfying (although much more poorly paid, of course).  My colleagues were very supportive during my husband's 18 months of disablility before he died last October.  

One thing about losing our spouses is the opportunity and challenge of reimagining our lives now that we are without them.  It is terrifying but also can be put to good, I think.  Take care!  Jean
