It is good to talk to someone. You are fortunate to have your parents and siblings. My Dad passed away in 1988. He was 58. He had an aggressive brain tumor and only lived 6 months after diagnosis. My parents were high school sweethearts. They got married very young. When i came along we all lived with my Mom's parents. if you saw the picture of my house, that was my great-grandparent's house. My grandparents, my parents and I, my two great-aunts and a great-uncle all lived there until I was 3. My parents moved out to another house on the farm, but I wouldn't go. i had a big temper tantrum so i stayed "the big house". That's what everybody called it. I lived there until I was 13 and then I went to live with my parents and younger brother. My grandparents didn't want to face the dating world of a teenager, and I don't blame them. The hard thing is, I always had someone to share with and talk to and now I don't. Nobody to remember the funny things that happened or to ask "do you remember when". Oh, I still talk to them, but as of yet, nobody has answered! I think it would give me a real jolt if they did. We haven't "chatted" much, you and I. I'm glad we did tonight. I guess I'd better get to bed. I have a busy day tomorrow, and it's supposed to be 96F here. I'll be a puddle of sweat. Sweet dreams, my friend. Hugs, Linda (wally01)
Hi, again. The only immediate family that I have here are two adult nephews. My Mama has been gone since 2003, and my little brother (he was 55) has been gone since 2010. I miss them so much. We were all very close and saw each other daily. For a year or so after Mama left, I didn't think I would ever laugh again. Deep depression had me. Then, one day it all seemed to lift away. I know that I prayed a lot. It just took time, I guess. Thanks again for remembering me. Hugs, Linda (wally01)
Ohai. I'm sorry that I'm late in thanking you for my birthday LOL. Lately I seem to be behind in everything. I've never had anybody make a song for me! You know you are special to me because you have my sweet Mama's birthday. October 1st birthday people are special. I look forward to more of your LOLs. Hugs, Linda (wally01)
Thank you for sharing about your friend Paul. How sad that he passed away so young and so burdened. Surely his faith through it all will be rewarded... will count for something. If it isn't too personal, maybe you'll let me read the tribute when it's finished.
