A Reunion in progrress.

They will come to reunite with old friends, and perhaps make new ones.
The emails have gone out, phone calls were made. Hopefully all were contracted, if not please help spread the word.

Do you reminder someone you chatted with? Someone you haven't seen in eons?
Wonder how they are doing? What is new with them?

Come find out many will be there. The response is very positive.

Check out the boards for the "Runion Chat". The ones that have posted are sure to make you grin, smile from within.

What better day to start it with St Patrick's Day!!! Great time to party, and say, "Slainte"! Here's to you, you and of course you.

So mark your calendar. Bring your smile. If you feel a tear it's ok, tissues, good wishes, always good food. Will be in abundance there.

Would love to see you so please be there. WomensSpace is the place.

Come one come all it's sure to be a ball.

Your invite is on the boards check it out. If you didn't recieve an email perhaps it bounced back, or was changed over time.

Don't feel slighted,
You're invited.

Hugs,

Friendship though the years.

How blessed can one be???? A veritable treasure trove of love, laughter, & tears though the years. It began the day Molly brought Fran home from the hospital.

Mom took me over to see the baby. Oh I was so much older. 18months. We were inseparable. By the time we were in school everyone thought we were sisters.

In high school we belonged to the "Legion of Mary". We went to church every day & would take the people from the "blind" house with us. We enjoyed seeing things though their eyes. They enjoyed seeing things though our eyes. What lessons we learned from them.

We weren't saints. We went to the clubs, we double dated, we'd back each other even if the other was wrong. ( who's wrong never happened, and if it did we didn't do a thing.)


Met our loves got married within a few yrs of each other. Our kids were good friends. When her oldest daughter got married within a yr of my daugher... they both had their sons 2 yrs later. Born within 13 days of each other. ..

Who would have thought that our lives would stay entwined over the years. Here we are. Now she is riddled with cancer. Stage 4.
She told me during the week that she didn't want me coming over. Then passed the phone to her hubby.

Talked to him. He relayed the message to Fran. It's time for me to bring coloring book & crayons over. When he told her that she said " Don't forget the pepsi"

That is how we got to see Fran today. Yes coloring book & crayons were given to her along with the pepsi. ..


Fran has a lot of pain, a lot of spirit, and yes her pride. When we were coming over today. She had her husband set her up in her wheelchair. She was covered with warm sweaters. Insisted on going out for lunch. Then when we got back to their house, we stayed for another 1/2 hr. She looked so very tired. Told her hubby we would be going. Fran needed to get to bed. He thanked us so much for coming over.

Hey she's my bestest bestest friend in the whole wide world. So glad we got to see her. If you're reading this. Say a prayer for her, her husband, & family. They are a wonderful family.

My heart aches for them. It's near her time. She's so aware & the pain is so real for her. If only I could take some of it from her.

A lot of the story is left out. It would fill a book or 2 if it were told in full.

Tell your friends how you feel. Don't let things fester between you, a friend, or relative. You may not have tomorrow to change it. Bless each of you.

Fran passed away from her pain March 22, 2009. I was with her up until a few hrs before she passed. Her husband said, "I think she was waiting for you to give her the ok."
Deep in my heart there is knowledge that it was the best for her. The pain, suffering, & uncomfortableness of it all passed from her.

Find myself wanting to call her up. Tell her what's happening. Our grandsons started high school Monday. My oldest granddaughter & her granddaughter started Middle school on Monday. Damn we should be able to talk about it.

Have been in touch with a few of her kids. Especially her daughter. When she feels like taking to her mom, she calls me. We chat for awhile. So glad she feels comfortable enough to call.

Have been staying in touch with her hubby too. We got together a few times. He'll be back here in a few weeks then we will go out to dinner again. Billy, my husband, & I. Billy has promised that we will stay in touch, that what Fran would want. He has been our friend for over 40 yrs, can't get away now. He's stuck with us.


Ok now it's time to say goodnight/ goodAM .. sweet dreams.

In a way I can relate. Mom passed on Feb.21,2009. I was asked on Thursday how I am doing with my grief? I tol my counselor I was doing well and seemed to have a handle on it.

Then drivig to bring my roommate his iced tea, I had to stop at a red light and a van trunin th corner toward me, I caught sight of the driver. She looked just llike mom!

By the time I got to his work I was in tears. I dropped his tea off and got to thinking.
Just when I thought I was at the shore line, God sent me a wave to bring me to my senses!

I miss not being able to just pick up the phone and call her. I talk to her but it's not the same when she doesn't talk back.
Hang on it will get better with time.

Love and hugs to all who are still dealing with grief. Don't let anyone try and tell you to get over it. It's called because you have to go throught it, not over it.

imagjne this: It's time for your yearly mammogram. You go in and put on the "lovely" robe they give you.
The tech calls your name and they push and pull you. tug and twist and when they are done they tell you to have a seat while they check the slides. You sit in a room with other women dress like you. You pick up a month old( if you are lucky) magazine and the tech calls you again. You are then told that they need to redo one of the veiws. So you let them pull and squeeze you and then tell you to go back to the waiting room. You set there trying to think okay no big deal. They call you again and the tech tells you that you can go.
The next day, you get a call saying you need to come back in and have your mammogram redone and a sonagram to. That you will need to wait 3 hours and then you will be told what was found out. Everyone tells you to be calm and the question is how?

How did the tests come out?

Mammograms such fun. NOT! Remember well spending a whole day there at one point. They tried 4 different of those squeezing the you know what out of them. Got so frustrated with them. Told them look if you're trying to milk it, it won't work. Then those needle biopsies. Yikes. Had a lump for over 10yrs they didn't want to take it out. Finally told them take it out. It's been to long. If you're waiting to see if cancer will show up. TAKE it the HELLO out. They did it wasn't cancerous.
It doesn't make sence to me if you have a lump, remove it then test it. Don't wait for games to start.
The same with other problems. You should know your body better than the dr. The dr should listen to you.
They have a better method of doing mammograms. It should be made available to all women & men for men get breast cancer too.
No matter how uncomfortable these tests are, they are ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Better to be uncomfortable for awhile then to find out 2 late & nothing can be done.
LADIES get those checkups. Do self exams. Know thyself better than someone else knows you. Take care YOU are IMPORTANT.

Lots of prayers & good thoughts are heading your way. I'll keep my fingers, toes, & eyes crossed for you as well. It's good that they are double checking things for you. It's important to keep abreast of things. (((((((((( crazymomma))))))))))

Trust such a simple word. Yet its a basis for life. It is what we use as a point of reference in our daily dealing with others. So if trust is such a word. Then the word trustworthy is a spin off of that word. Thus if you are trustworthy then others must trust you for your common sense, wisdom and experience. Then again if you are untrustworthy why is that? Is it due to your actions that went separate of your words. Just like making a promise. If you have done so, then you must execute it. However there are instances where beyond your control you arent able. Yet does this make a person untrustworthy. Not if they explain the points of uncontrol that made them do their choices. However, in this society and life these words are key to our lives. Thus necessary to some decisions made. Not the ones done in haste but thought out. So if you have become untrustworthy of your words, actions and accountability. Then whose job is it to correct or fix it? The one who you have done the wrongs and made yourself untrustworthy or yourself. A real person being male or female has this choice. Thus if you had a word you'd like others to apply to you what would it be? I myself would like to think trust, wisdom and helpfulness. I may not like you one iota but if I am able to help you in a circumstance then I would. For I have no hidden agendas. I wont lie. Not even to save my own rearend. All I care about is being happy, thought of by others on occasion and perhaps loved. Yet I cant do all of those things. The one I can do is make and keep myself happy. So if you are untrustworthy do a reflection of past actions and words and deeds. Do what you must to fix or correct them. It doesnt mean you will attain the previous level you were on but it does mean you have chosen to be a better person than before by learning from your mistakes. So I will bless those who are and aren't. May the reading of this help you to have a better understanding of life and me.
