Have been mia for a bit. My computer died on Weds, so my friend is loaning me her laptop until mine is fixed, or I have to buy a new one. We will see.

Have been a lot of repairs and things breaking here lately. I remember a time, when any of it would have just sent me into a tailspin.

I guess i have matured enough since I have been here, on SP, that even though this stuff was pretty unexpected and costly, I am just dealing with it.

I am lucky that my cousin's son is staying with me right now and helping with expenses for a bit, and he even gave me an extra $100 to pay for having the clogged sewer cleaned out.

This has been a difficult six months or so, but I am seeing that I can handle it all much better than before.

Trying to make sure I realize that this is a positive lesson.

My Aunt Betty's illness, period of Hospice care, and her death were difficult to deal with, but I think it all is helping me gain a bit of perspective.

I know that when my friend Lothar passes from his cancer, it will be a difficult time again, but I am feeling that I will be strong enough to handle it.

I do realize, that things happen for a reason, and if you have faith, you will be taken care of. Very valuable and comforting lessons to learn.

    I have found that the breaking of the heart proves over time to be a gift, for we find who we really are within.
