I don't understand this paragraph and don't believe I suggested anything about your circumstance....when I told my story about my foster mom, it was all about us? Really wasn't directing anything towards you...and sorry If I gave you that impression?
Good Morning Cremebrulee!

I'm doing well and I hope that you are also.

I owe you an apology as I did misunderstand you. You don't owe me an apology. Your views were for your own situation and I took it personally and I shouldn't have.

So, what I've done is to tell them, to go on ahead without me...(and I do this outloud) that I'll be ok, and they need to go where they are supposed to be and I'll catch up with them when it's my time to cross over, but they need to live out the next step of their spiritual life now...b/c that is the natural order of things.

Crazy? I don't know...but I surely didn't want mom hanging around thinking that she had to protect me
b/c the natural order of things reminded her and I, that it was time for her to go....her job was well done, and I'd be fine.
I do apologize for taking your view personally. I enjoy reading your posts and I hope I didn't offend you with my last post to you, I did make it personal.

Well, now that this is cleared up, this newbie made another big mistake and I've learned to try to not take the words of a kind poster personal.

I thank you for that!
