"Morgan, Given that I lost the unrelenting, unconditional love of my entire life, I look back at what happened to me, so many years ago, as some kind of a divine gift, almost as if something knew that someday, I would need it. I also know that if it…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Virginia, you so often end your posts with something ominous. You are trying to say something and it is coming across loud and clear. Don't wish yourself dead. Try to live while you're alive. Find joy where you can. Never give up."

bluebird replied to Kristen Harlow's discussion Feeling alone
"That is a lot of shit to deal with, all at once. It's good your sister is ok now.  If the man who you feel is your best friend and the love of your life were to come back now, do you think you would be ready to be with him now?"
