My longtime friend is on the brink of losing her husband. (Due to ongoing heart problems and other serious issues.)...My friend and her husband got married right before my husband and I did and we've known each other for decades...So my Easter involves a lot of worry and concern about my friend and her husband...We don't live close to each other anymore but have stayed close through phone calls and infrequent visits etc...My friend is surrounded by family members right now so she's not all alone. (And I'm glad for this.)...Anyway I'm on "pins and needles" because I know my friend's husband could die at any time...And I feel so sad for her. She is "playing soldier" and trying to be strong and brave. (For herself and for her husband and family.)...But I'm glad she knows that it's okay to call me up and cry and "break-down" when need be...I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away and keep her husband around for years and years. (In good health.)

Aww, so sorry to hear about your friend, CA. Please don't get so "worried" that you slip back into your own loss too much. (((HUGS)))

Thank you, Tony. I did. My oldest friend and her partner made sure of that. The day after Easter was my 60th b'day and they made sure it was a good one.

Happy belated birthday Tami! I'm glad you had a good time on Easter. (And on your birthday too!)...I'm glad your friends spoiled you!...A couple of weeks ago my friend "treated" me to new haircut and style. (She insisted!)...I really have been letting myself "go to pot!" So it felt good to be pampered and spoiled for a change...I'm learning to reach-out to friends a little more. (Versus living like a total "recluse.")...And it feels good too!...Anyway happy belated birthday!

Thank you, CA. That was the last of the big "1sts" in my life. They all were really "2nds", since Earl died in January but as I stated earlier, last year was so filled with grief that I don't recall any of them. Praise the Lord I can't remember the pain either.

The holidays are right around the corner. How is everyone doing? Do you have plans?...I think I was probably still in shock at this time last year. And "numbed-out" without realizing it. (My son had only been "gone" a few months.)...Now, "reality" has set-in and it's hard to face the holidays this year...I have to keep "picking" myself back "up." (But it's hard at times.)...I made plans for Thanksgiving so I won't be all alone. Not sure about Christmas. How about you?
