Jerry, beautifully heartfully written. Thank you for a wonderful reflection for this day.
Thank you for your steady influence on here, I always read your posts.
In this year that I've been on jwn, sometimes it's just the smallest of comments that catch my eye ... and I think why did I not see that! Other times it's like Gangbusters, omg like getting hit by a bolt of lightening ... and my whole perception changes instantly.
Very importantly, the support has kept my spirits up. Living alone is difficult. Seems painfully so after having a housefull of children who need you, and now no one does. Not even the dog.
Dear Flipper has been a great influence on me. He notices everyone who responds to his thoughts and questions ... he had me at hello!
The first 'apostate' I ever talked to was Randy, he's done a huge amount of work and effort for all of us.
When I scan through the archives I'm just so impressed by all of those wonderful people with their amazing stories of survival ... hard to not break your heart most of them.
Thanks to all for your companionship on this long journey
