    I hope that you can find someone to help you if you are feeling that low. Life is hard.

    My count has gone from months to weeks, Christmas is highly questionable.
    I must confess, the thought does not make me happy.
    My life was what it was, a lot of life is playing the hand dealt with a little dignity, even when enormous mistakes are made.

    Every life has value. Never give up.


    I have been very fortunate (as well as determined in each of my goals). I expect to continue a very full life in good health and enjoying all of the greatest delights (including seeing great grandchildren now that grandkids are graduating college). I have outlived most who wished me ill.

    I wish that I had known all I had to do was ask Life to make me rich.
    I’m sorry, I don’t see it as being that simple. I think Life gives you what it wants you to have and it’s up to you to make something of it.

    Don’t worry…..it will.
    That is as certain as the sun will rise tomorrow.

    @Kaffekup

    Let me ask you this…..are you alive???
    Then you are rich beyond your dreams.
    What you have is what you got.
    Just remember tomorrow you may not wake up.
    Everyday you are alive is a good day regardless of what goes on.

    I had to memorize this in 5th grade, about when the author died. She was 78, famous, and by all accounts had a rich full life. It was understood in those days that the “bargaining” included the work and effort you would put forth, in work and relationships.
