Talking

(((( Seo Tiffin )))) I have bubble bath from daughter for those times I feel I need a few minutes to myself. I do try to take time for me when I can. I have a cape that says Superwoman so I cant relax too much in case someone sees me without my leotards on. But seriously I am doing ok with it all. As I said I have found some extra strength that is carrying me through and I know I will be fine. I appreciate you all more than I can express. When life slows down a little I will be back and hopefully I can catch up a bit on chat as well. Take care and know I think of you all often. Love you

Shana, Prayers for you and your family. Sometimes it's the time to be closer.

Use that bubble bath, light candle, have a glass of the bubbly.. Take the moments for you, you deserve at least that.



Bet the leotards are cute with that superwoman cape.


Seriously you have been going though such an emotionial roller coaster. Wish with all my heart I could slow that coaster down, and make things good for you again.


We are here, we do care. You are OUR shana123 always.

((((((((((((( Addie, Tiffin, seo, all ))))))))))


((((((((((((((( Our shana1 ))))))))))))))) You don't have to chat the whole night, just a few hours, even popping in a few min it's good to see you. YOU ARE LOVED just by being you.

Be Gentle With Your Own Heart Shana!

Hi Shana, many hugs as you face up to this hard time in your life. My Mum died in 2004, her health gradually declining over a 3 year period after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The emotional roller-coaster made it a tough time, never knowing for sure what was to come next. In some ways, the mother I became closer to during that time wasn't the same one that I had known when younger - as well as being older, she had some personality changes due to the brain tumour, and everything was different. But it helped me to grown, and I hope has made me more compassionate to others.

So, take good care of yourself as you are, being there for your Mum. Take time out to be with friends now and then, and forgive yourself for anything that wasn't perfect in the past. We are all only human after all!

Prayers and hugs for you and your Mum.

I thank you all for your kind words of support. Thanks Jagg for expressing how I was feeling. I know the mother I had for the past 6 weeks was not the mother I grew up with. I am ever so grateful for having the mother I always wanted finally near the end. In so many ways it made it harder to lose her again but I would not have changed those 6 weeks for anything. My mother is at peace now and I think so am I. I will soon be moving into my own home and beginning a new life. From here on in, it's All about me and my happiness. Selfish? No, I just realized it's my turn.

(((((((((( shana )))))))))))))), A great lady that we know once told me it's not selfish, but self-ish time to think and do for you. That not being selfish. Thats taking care of self something you need to do.

You know we are here for you.

Hi rj ((( hugs ))) Well my life is pretty busy still and I am hoping to slow it down some soon. Overall I am doing ok. I am taking it one day at a time. I am working full time as well as trying to renovate my new home so I can get into it. I am hoping that once I am settled that I can take some time off and just go away somewhere. A weekend alone sounds grand to me right now but with patience I know I will get that too. Thanks for asking Hope all is well with everyone!
