    Hello World!!

    Those of you that have read my ramblings know just how much I treasure my wife and caregiver.

    SO!, you can imagine my panic when she called to tell me that she had wound up off the road in a deep ditch! We have settled down to a single vehicle family and I had no easy way to run to her aid, but as luck would have it, one of her knitting friends found her and all was well with her; BUT, our trusty Honda Pilot is much the worst for wear! I can breath again and I’ll just call her Casey Jones.

    There are times for all of us, and each of us, when life events make us re-focus on the things that are REALLY important. Cancer is forgotten, pain is forgotten along with shortness of breath. I am sure that each of us on this forum have that place in our heart that pushes us forward.

    I certainly know that I do.

    Warmest regards to you all,
    zim
