    Just seen this post recovering, I am so sorry you are having to go through this, reading through the posts I was very moved and I thought how brave you are to keep this from your family over christmas and how painful that would be for you, then I got to your post about the news good news you recieved, when you do tell your family they will be fighting with you and help give you the strength to fight this with you.

    I will be praying for you and your family sending you love and best wishes, please keep us posted.

    To Recovering and my dear heart, Podobear.

    Please indulge me as I present one of my favorite Bible passages, the Aaronic Benediction.

    Thank you.

    Numbers 6:24 God bless you and keep you,

    25 God smile on you and gift you,

    26 God look you full in the face
    and make you prosper ... The Message Bible

    Love, peace, and strength to both of you.

    I'm praying for you and your family -- both for physical healing and for reconciliation with your son.

    You may no longer believe but those of us who still do will be praying for you all.

    Thank you all for your well wishes and sage advice. It has helped me immensely in facing the next two days, and what I must do. Tonight we are having the whole family over for Christmas Eve (with the exception of my JW son.) I must put on a brave face for the sake of my family. I must steel my will and act happy and normal, in the face of the terrible secret I am keeping. I could not do so without your love and support. Thank, thank you, thank you all!!!
