    Thanks, Christine. You know, when you are feeling sorry for yourself, the man upstairs always finds a way to put things in perspective. My sister-in-law and I were once very close, but not for several years. We were heavily involved in politics. It was once said about her that if she didn't support a candidate for office, they didn't stand a chance of winning in Texas. All those years of smoking caught up with her.

    So, true.... when you think you have it bad or life is hitting you hard, something comes along to let you know -- you actullay are doing OK. I also found out that my best friend has breast cancer, she found out a couple days before Banks past and held off telling me till this past weekend. She is only 44 and has many tough decisions in front of her. Why does it seem that Novemebr/December tends to vring us some of the toughest news

    I don't know. Are we just more aware of things at this time of year? I don't know about you, but I hate to get bad news anytime, but especially during the holidays. Putting Trixie down two years ago during the week before Christmas was devastating. I didn't think we'd get over it--until I met Mabel!

    Christine, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend I'm sending you prayers as well…

    I agree that Nov/Dec seems to be the worst… I think it's because everywhere you look they are reminding you it's the "happiest time of the year", but the reality is that many people are dealing w/heartbreaking issues.

My mother has no clue how to support someone when they're in the frame of mind I was in after going through that stuff. She is difficult at best, and a real b**** at her worst. She's part of the reason I can't go to Dallas this season. She refuses to travel and doesn't want to be alone for the holidays.

    I hope everything works out for you. I know it's nowhere near the same, but if things do not work out, you really should try video chat, Skype or a laptop camera type thing. You can have a live feed to each other and enjoy the evening with them
