Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

My Friends, Thank you...

In spite of the fact that I've made great stride over the past few months of getting from Point A to Point B,  it will still be sad to pass the holidays without him.  I've learned a lot about myself too...I am not a wallower....wallowers get stuck in the mud......My lil dancing feet won't allow me to stay there nor do I think hub would want me there.  So it is with his blessing and loving memories that I vow to smile from my heart and pass the holidays with loving and supportive friends who've been my rocks over the past year, including all my bloggies!  I thank them and you for that. Little do you and they know how much it meant to me.

This song is dedicated to you and them :-)




Peace

It's great to have you in the blogosphere again, Miss Odat!

Good Tuesday evening to you Odat.
Yes to both - it is going to be sad without him, and you are not a wallower. Both are true.

((hugs))

another good one is the Bette Midler one from Beaches, 'the wind beneath my wings'.

The Carole King one and that one are how you are a person as well - cyber, as well as real life when it matters!

That song is a good choice. Peace to you this Christmas and may friendships carry you through.

Peace, my friend. May the peace be joined by hope, love and joy.

You continue to be in our prayers.

You want a weird situation? I've been listening to Carole King's Greatest Hits CD for almost a week solid in my car! I think I understand more than anyone else what you are saying... Merry Christmas, Odat! You are free now...

Say It said...

{{HUG}} Odat. I know how you feel.

Thank you for posting this wonderful video. I first heard Carole King's Tapestry in Grade 4. My teacher was a fan :) I've been meaning to buy that album on CD forever and keep forgetting. This is a perfect song right now.

Sending happy holiday thoughts to you.

Sorry, Gandalf and Grayson got so excited when they saw your name in Lois' comments! They just blurted out your name!

I'm so glad to see you're back blogging! I know the holidays will be especially difficult. Lean on your friends, they'll be glad you did. They'll laugh with you, and we'll cry with you, too. ♥
