@tmmmrlts– It is so very good to hear from you. Good for you going back to school. You will never regret this. I think that you know it will also help your healing from the loss of your husband and give you a chance to stay focused. Don't be afraid of letting go and not feeling guilty of anything that that you do not need to be. Where will you be spending the holidays?
I don't know where I will spend it at yet. My son is in Texas working don't know if he is coming home or not.
@tmmmrlts– Can you fly to him?
No I haven't got the money and haven't ever flown
@tmmmrlts– Hmmm. DO you have any other ideas? Maybe volunteer?
Merry Volunteer Mentor @merpreb Hi just wanted to post an update. I'm doing okay. I'm still in school to get my diploma I graduate in May. Just wanted to give you some good news since you were there for me. Thank you.
Had a great holiday spent Thanksgiving with my son and daughter. Had a wonderful Christmas we all went to my son's on Christmas eve except one daughter and four grandchildren. then they all came to my house on Christmas day
@tmmmrlts– It's so good to hear from you and your good news! I don't remember you saying anything about school. What are you studying? What diploma will you get? I've missed you.
I went back to school to get my high school diploma. Then I will start to college in august. I am thinking about being a respiratory therapist.
@tmmmrlts– Excellent. Good for you. You've gone from Care taker to HS graduate and will go beyond! What an example you are. Perhaps you would post this on the Caretaker's group to help encourage to move beyond their pain?
