My thoughts are with you, Charlie. Last year was my ".. Crazy Year." You have my prayers. What got me through the rough times of last year... cooking and coming on this site. I don't take as many pictures as I used to, but I still have fun cooking. It really helped me, but I'm weird. Stay strong. Like Bolas said, "Spring is on it's way!" I saw quite a few robins yesterday. That is a sure sign that Spring is around the corner!

A little kindness goes a long way.

My thoughts are with you. I had a "crazy year" the year my husband retired from the Army (against my wishes). We moved to Florida, which I never liked, built a house, my grandmother, mother-in-law and a good friend died, one of my sisters and my best friend married (not to each other! To men!). I found myself trying to build a house (not literally, just making the choices), not being able to go to Gran's funeral (we were in FL, she was buried in NH), so I took on all of the family's dogs, at the ripe old age of 40, trying to select and make bridesmaids' gowns, traveling to California for a wedding when we really hadn't settled into our new home yet .... well, it all took place over an 18 month period, but it seems like it was three or four years!

Last year was mine, as well. Quitting smoking, having a heart attack and freaking out any time I had any type of chest pain. Family troubles and the death of one of my nephews. Shrek's Bladder cancer...Not a good year at all. DC, and my friends here, was a lifeline.

This year has been much better.
