    Just wanted to take a few and say hi again and let you all know that today sucks so far as I miss her alot, more so now than at first, but I know she is in a good place and loving what she is able to do now and with whom she can do it.

    I just saw the thread about thinking of loved ones who have gone "home" and it is a good one!

    Please Please!!! If you are not feeling "Normal" and think you need to get it checked, then do so!! And then get a second opinion!!!! This is critical!! I have come to learn that is something you owe to everyone around to give the opportunity to spend time with and enjoy your company and just BE THERE!

    Take NOTHING FOR GRANTED! Appreciate all things for what they are meant to be! There is no set time line and no one knows when it will be gone in nothing more than a heartbeat, or just the simple thing as a beautiful breath of fresh air!

    Because you just never when you will have to say goodbye to something so precious and beautiful. At 37 you are not supposed to bury your wife, but it happens all the time and life does go forward. You don't "move on" you just go through it! And it pushes you back alot of the time, but it does get better and things go smoother and eventually the bad fades and it is less hurtful. Days go by very slowly, yet the months seem to fly by, strange it works that way. Today is three months and six days! Only know that because today would have been her 37 birthday.

    So take a few and tell that someone you care about them, and make sure they know it! I would ask ya' all to keep what I typed in mind when your health exams are due!!! You owe it to those who care about and to rob them of that time and opportunity is a crime against life itself! Don't be a robber!!! Ya' all take care now!

    Happy Birthday Goofus! (Cathy, adriansmom) From that ol' guy who misses her deeply.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this special day with us. Blessings to you and Adrian!

    And yes, taking good care of yourself and your loved ones is important. My DH had bypass surgery last month and is doing well, thanks to an alert doctor who referred him to a specialist when he began having serious blood pressure issues. The problem was the arteries around his heart.

    Hello. Glad you have come back to share some time with us. I know you miss her very much. Some day you will know what people mean when they tell you that 'time heals'.

    Arron, we are so glad that you come here to share your feelings. Like you, we miss Cathy very much. I have lost both my father and a sister, so I can say from my heart that time does help.

    Happy Birthday Cathy! You and Adrian should have a birthday cake in her honor. She would love that! :D
