You lifted my spirits!
I hope the love lightened your load as well.
Once again, you blogging sisters showed up at the storm, and welcomed me inside your safe haven for shelter. I am a lucky girl, to know all of you, and that you care so much. The comments that were left were so heart felt. I could feel the optimism, hopefulness, pain and worry, but especially love.

Your advice and suggestions were wonderful.
My mind knows that these hard times my loved ones are experiencing are temporary...it's my heart that tries to hold on to hurt and worry. I'm working on getting into the 'mind over matter' stage. And like WH (fyi that is wonderful husband) says, break problems down into smaller pieces, then deal with what you can, affect what you can.
I'm feeling great after a good girl's weekend with my dear friend Diana Frey. Our shopping was rained out, so no flea market in Alameda, but food, fun and clothes shopping quickly took it's place. Great medicine for what was ailing me. Forget the weight of the world, put it on hold, for a few hours.
I am so sorry for all the pain you are experiencing too. My wish is that with all the wisdom brought to that post from our sister's comments, you too will find some solitude, and the right words to help you find your way out of a storm going on in your life. A few suggested praying, and that is great advice too. Whatever means we have to use to find peace, continue to create, for our sanity, and the happiness it brings to others, we will find it.
I strapping on my creative mojo today, I feel it waiting in the hallway for me. We've been disconnected for a week or so, but I see she wants to tag along today. I'm welcoming her with open arms, a lighter heart, and a smile on my face.
Thank you everyone. Let's create today!
