@johnjames Yes John, it could be me speaking your same words with my Dysplasia, I believe that their
lives have to go on. The isolation is bad for us. I wrote a dear friend this morning of your same thoughts
and everyone seems to run to you as they did this past April upon diagnosis and stay for a time and then
leave. This website is excellent but doesn’t replace friends and family. I do know isolation is the worse
thing, there is a world of people just like us out there that are having the same feelings and those feelings
are very real.

Thanks for your kind reply @elizabethbryant. I wish you the best in 2017.

Yes-your so right on- not sure why, so many-make it so hard and confusing to understand? it’s like if they get to lone, for to long-they too make catch it or some thought like that. Most just avoid me or talk over me about something- I have no idea what their talking about.We have to pick each other up and support each other to keep going, as God says- Help your brother or Sister) with their burdens and help carry them.

@johnjames That sounds like a good sermon! Thanks for the inspiration – The Good Samaritan in modern times!

I hope this isn’t totally inappropriate, but your post reminded me of an old, favorite song:

Love is but a song to sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at your command
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now

It also reminds me of “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers”, another favorite.

@macbeth Great message!

Great song and wouldn’t that be nice -” if we all did as the words in the song” a great song- one of my favorite.

@johnjames and @macbeth I’m just sure that what the world needs is more singing. You have both lifted my spirits with these posts!
