Thank you so much Elena, Suz and April (and many others) for your kind thoughts, words and support. Elena, I really appreciate the offers of an ear and a shoulder more than you know. I just haven't felt very communicative lately! I'm trying to "get back up on the horse" so to speak! I love, love, love Christmas and it's just totally going against my grain to not be "doing" Christmas the way I normally would! But even when the mind has been willing the body has not. First I couldn't get past the sluggish lack of energy and then I came down with a nasty cold. It feels like the universe was making me go easy on myself, whether I wanted to or not!!! I have been thinking a lot about your idea, Elena, to pick a word for the year. The word that keeps popping into my head is EXPAND. It goes along with my favorite quote----"The world shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." I think my most favorite quote of all time is by Einstein---"Is the Universe Friendly???" It's all about attitude!! Sure I'm sad, sure I hate losing my mom BUT there is still a great big life out there waiting to be lived!! And slowly, but surely, I will get back into living it!!! And the support of people like you guys is a HUGE blessing. Thank you!!!!
