@rwinney I get it! I don't know about you but feeling down or mourning the loss of what I once was can sneak up on me. The scene in my head goes something like Oh poor me. I am so tired of ________ (fill in the blank) hurting, being tired, etc And of course I get the why me.Usually that's all followed by ugly crying before I put my big girl panties on and get back to a better frame of mind. I look for the beauty in life and the things I CAN do. Allow yourself to miss your old life just dont make that the focus of your life. You've got this!

I had to share a couple photos of my Christmas cactus. I just noticed that it is filled with buds and has quite a few blossoms. Happy Tuesday. My your heart be blessed. Be kind, it costs nothing but can be priceless.

@johnbishop Thank you for helping again. I hope @trishj46 can benefit from your instructions.
@parus I too enjoy sending and receiving Christmas cards. I’m feeling that I’m in a better place mentally and am in the midst of writing out cards.I miss looking at beautiful holiday displays in store windows. After that, we’d stand in line to see Santa, get hot chocolate and sing carols. Has ‘Scamp’ come over for playtime?
@mamacita Im glad you have a Tech Helper (although I understand how “helpful” a 14 yr old can be.
Blessings to us all

@januaryjane I’m hoping and praying for you. I can hear the stress in your words and I understand. Breathe. My parents are long gone but I would change places in a heartbeat even to stress over them.
Hang on!
