  1. Thank you river and yes he's doing much better and I hate to say this but in a sence it's the best thing, it gives him a chance to take account of his life. He's in physical rehabilitation facility just outside L.A., we visited him yesterday and though he's shaking he's doing much better. The only downside is the accumulation of inncudents tends to wear us down. Stay strong, giving up isn't an option

    OMG! That's horrendous! I am SO SORRY to hear this. Yes, please do keep your hopes up that he can recover in time.

    I am obviously back on DF.... things are not great -- well just with my new job -- everything else is good.

    Hugs and prayers going out to you!!!

    Thank you so much but unfortunately my son has fallen into a coma but the doctors are hopeful as we are. Life is what life is. I truly am happy for you. Stay positive and strong. Thank you for your prayers. 

  3. Unfortunately my son was found under a bridge in the wash, he had a stroke and bleeding in the brain. Right now he's unable to walk or talk very much but we are keeping our hope up. It's been extremely hot and humid and the drugs didn't help either; now we travel back and forth to Loma Linda and spend a few days at a time with him. He's young so that's a plus but his future is uncertain. 

  4. So we thought but we had to return early. Sadly and unfortunately my remaining son lives on the streets due to drug habit. We brought him here to the ranch hoping he would return to rehab but he left during the night when I finally fell asleep. He hasn't answered our calls or texts. Because of what happened to my police officer brother they are really helping us but nothing yet. We've been searching everywhere but again nothing yet and it's extremely hot, killer heat. Not giving up till we find him, whatever the case may be. Please please enjoy your life, NEVER look back, NEVER. With all my heart I wish you the best. 

  5. I wish everyone a great summer, and please try to make it so. Hooking up the 5th wheel and hitting the road till end of summer. Will be flying back a couple times for wife's follow up but hopefully things will be well with her. Hope to stay off here for a bit but who knows. Lol. Be good to each other, and tell them how much you love now. Don't wait till it's to late.

    thanks! It happened! I got the official offer letter yesterday!!! Wheeeeeee! :hugs:

    Oh, I will be sure to make a good first impression when I get there. The CEO told me in his offer letter that after they met me, they stopped interviewing! And I was one of their first candidates!!!! WOW. That's never ever ever happened to me before... somehow, I impressed them to the point of not wanting to interview anyone else.

    I am beyond thrilled. Now everything in my life is complete!

    TY again for all your kind and supportive replies!!! ❤️❤️

    You see, the sun does shine upon us more than once. Wish you all the best.

    Awwww.... well, my job offer hasn't been made official yet -- no offer letter yet -- they extended the offer by phone two weeks ago! So I am waiting on the official offer letter.... things may not be as great as I had thought! They're seriously delayed and now I'm wondering what's up. GRRRRRR.

    Be patient, the best jobs as life rarely happen quickly. 

    One suggestion from my days as a job developer if you haven't done so yet: learn as much about the company and the particular job. Not only will you have a head start it will impress your boss, and you about first impressions. Hang in there. And have plan B and maybe C as a backup. Can't hurt.

  8. Hope you do if needed. Please try to enjoy life. Know it's not easy but I sincerely hope you do

    That's what I call the roller coaster effect: you go up, see far and wide but of course you know the down part is coming. Wish I had those magic words and tell you that everything will always be ok but we know better. But here's one thing I've learned, and maybe it's easier for me because of my age. I've learned to live within certain confines or fences as my car's GPS calls it. That being said you still have to be spontaneous but with a certain degree of apprehension, eyes wide open and sometimes wide shut. Remember Forrest Gump and his words about a box of chocolates. Lol. 

  9. Mental illness tricks us to look at life through a cloudy lens because our brains work that way BECAUSE of our mental illness. And no one has "everything" though it may look that way; everyone has problems of one kind or another, some worse than others. 

    I ride a bicycle for exercise and to help me with my depression; I enjoy being alone and away from everyone. But unless you get your mind under control nothing will satisfy your desire for happiness.

    I can't imagine the pain of losing a child. The closest I have to that experience is losing my dad. I know that that pain has never gone away, I just live with it, and like you mark the anniversary. Some people leave holes in our lives that can never be filled. How much their absence hurts is a sign of how much love is still in our hearts for them. That is a good - but very painful thing.

    Don't feel obligated to reply, just let your pinky heal, alright?

    Take care,

    Dewayne

    Hey D, do you know that more than ninety percent of marriages break up after the death of a child, I guess it's because the couple blame each other, my wife and I went through this phase but because God's grace we pulled thought it. I'm sure you know the saying "a parent is not suppose to bury their children, its suppose to be the other way around". But we must accept whatever comes our way and continue on or our lives will be destroyed. By the way my pinky has healed almost totally now; this makes my fifth finger I've broken over my life time, next time I might break my neck, God forbid (LOL). Thank you D for your concern, Frank
  11. Frank ~

    I live that same kind of agony each year myself ~ but twice. Every year, along with four happy birthday celebrations for our incredible, living children, we also have two remembrances for our two sweet babies that were taken from us to live among the angels. It is a pain that only a parent who has personally lived it through can understand. I understand that heartbreak, Frank. Imagining how she'd smile or wondering if he'd have freckles...a little league star?...the class clown?...imagining the first date...the senior prom....a wedding. Over the years we accept the inevitable because that is our only option, but in our heart we carry imaginary snapshots of a life that never was.

    I'm so sorry for the loss you must bear, Frank. Reach out to those here who can relate exactly to what you are going through. :console:

    You are so right Mary, I think of her everyday, what could have been, etc.; she would have looked just like her mom, a very beautiful lady I might add. The one thing that most people do not understand is not that she died, its that my faith was shaken to it's very core; I believed God would heal her to the very last moments of her life. After getting over my anger and bitterness to wards Him, I accepted one very good lessen, we must trust Him in all things and situations. Lord bless you and yours Mary, we are unfortunately members of a very exclusive club. Much, much love, Rev. Frank
