this journey continues to be hard..i kind of had an idea that ange and i would have a hard time after the holidays..because we were running around so much and not dealing with the everyday reminder of what has been this past year..and then plop here it is..everyday, interactions with people, life in general is just difficult..there are people that act strange to us, or simply stay away, acting differently..(i am very grateful the amazing friends and family that we do have) but it really hurts to be left out of our once close friends lives..i am personally feeling a bit exhausted of cheerleading to be noticed, and am struggling with this..please continue to have patience with us, as i know you do..we love you very much and always appreciate your love..
p.s. thanks for letting this be my sounding board..i need it..

In my life I have met many people that I have ended up saying goodbye to. This bothered me at first, my feelings were hurt that others did not stay in touch, didn’t respond to my letters or calls. I felt better about what life hands out when I realized that we can have good friends for just a time. No real words of wisdom, just the thought that after all my years and experiences, focusing on what I have control of – which is certainly not others’ actions – keeps me calm. Love to you and Ange.

Friends come and go throughout our lives. Most people only have a very few that hang in there through the years. People change and sometimes people are just ignorant when it comes to dealing with “friends” who have gone through difficult times. Please try not to take losing them too hard. They probably just don’t know how to act or what to say, so it’s easier to just stay away or not get too close. Just be yourself and your true friends will stick by you…just a few words of wisdom from an old lady!
