Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
-Rose Kennedy

Is there anybody out there??

Have you been reading and NOT commenting? If so, would you do me the kind favor of just saying "hi"? I'd like to know who you are what your story is. I'd like to be able to give you the support that you so deserve.

So, if you are out there...delurk, write a comment, just say "hi!" and let me know you exist.

I don't write comments too often, I don't feel too compelled to post a lot either but I would like to read your story and offer what I can to you!

Have a fun time going around and telling us all that you read is after all time for you to come out of the wood work!

Playwright Eugene Ionesco said, "Ideology separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together."

I've always liked quotes from others...I usually find a few a week that I write down and mull over. I have a show I watch Cri.minal Mi.nds,it's a show that is probably not good for my brain but for some reason, the evil must be watched! Anyhow, at the beginning and the end of this show someone reads a quote. Lately, I have found in watching re-runs and even new shows that their quotes are amazing. So, I snagged the one I snagged the one the other day. Quotes give us all something to think about.

Isn't the quote above oh, so true...the Dreams and Anguish I feel sure have brought me to feel closer to all of anguish brought me to blogland and my dreams keep me here. I dream for all of us, not just myself!

There is another quote that rings in my head, day after day, I read it on a church board a LONG time ago...I keep it tucked deep within my soul and on occasion I speak it to remember, "The best things in life, are not things." That's right, my best things are my friends (you all included here!), my family, my pets, my memories. Hmm, do you consider those things? I don't!

Can you tell me what your dreams are? Are they more than the usual we all have here?What are the best things in your life?

A thought...sort of...

Wendell Berry said, "The past is our definition. We may strive with good reason to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it. But we will escape it only by adding something better to it."

My truth is I don't want to escape my past. I do however want to add something better to my life.

Tell me do you want to escape your past?

Airplanes and such

I'll be leaving on an airplane at the end of March. I'll be going to Washington D.C.
I've been invited to attend SIDS/SUID and Stillbirth-A National Research and Advocacy Symposium. There will be a speaker there who believes that a lot of the research for all of us that has been done up to this point is virtually unusable because of the restrictive participation of the parents. I hope he shakes it all up and they push for more participation of the parents that walk our shoes. As I am sure you can guess, I am beyond excited and can't wait for March to get here!

All in all things are going alright here. I will be attending my support group tonight which will be very good for me. I haven't been in over three months. I am as sick as it is to say looking forward to going. It doesn't make me feel much better but it does make me feel less alone. Those in real life meetings really help!

Hoping the New Year is bringing you all what you hoped for or at the very least bringing you some peace.
