Couldn't agree more, Miss Foo. Miss Rose communicates quite well, in spite of Madam Kindle's efforts to thwart her...frankly, I rather enjoy separating Miss Rose's wheat from Madam Kindle's chaff - it's like a brain game!!
Very healthy.

ROTF..my eyes are watering from laughing and thank you. Lol

In only 23 short years, my son did a marvelous job of that. When his body was in the hospital, at which he arrived without a heartbeat or brainwaves, and stayed for four days while we found matching recipients for his organs, he was visited by at least 150 people. There was never a time when his visiting hours weren't crowded - practically everyone who ever knew him loved him, and wanted to say goodbye. There was a never-ending wave of prayers from all those folks, and such an outpouring of love for our Alex, that most of them were sure he would sit up and ask us what the heck we were all doing there....of course, he never did. With his organ donations, 7 people's lives were continued or given second chances as a result of his death, and he changed the lives of more people while he was alive, than I will ever know. I was so proud of him...and still am.

Many people don't accomplish in a long life what your boy did in his short one. Nice work, Mom.

Like I said, I can't force myself to believe something, even if I had a great desire for it to be real. As a young person, I wanted to believe in a higher power and for years, I just accepted the Christian god, because that's what I grew up with. I was raised in a beautiful, traditional sect. However, faith isn't enough for me. There needs to be some evidence that a god exists. If I become convinced, fine. If not, that's fine, also. I don't worry about it, at all.

Yanno one sign of the best moms is kicking oneself over our perceived deficiencies or mistakes.

Little story..my daughter W's a really good kid..think I may have spanned her like 3 times as a little kid for scathe things like using a razor ..one whack and I wanted to cry..

Anyway as she grew up basically if I got angry she would give herself time out and go to her room.

Imagine my shock when at around 12 plus she got reallly mouthy..send her yo room. Take something away. Etc..
one day it got really bad. And I just had it and smacked her...she runs down the hall crying on shock..I sm standing with tears kn my eyes. My friend says I was wi seeing hoe long you were going to take that. Well the storm blew over the mouth got better and no prov tip just before collge year..that is another story..

Anyway roll forward..about 10 plus years...Getting married. The day before the wedding we are having a talk about stuff..serious things. Anyway I hug her and tell her how I have always felt bad for slapping her in anger. SHE LOoKS AT ME with a big question mark...lol she never even remembered...!!!!

She has her own kids now. And is a super mom..

Thing is if you were not a good mom....you would never even think you could be.

For me I always believed what I learned as a kid..But I never came to true faith and LOVE until in my 50's.
I even thought about reincarnation for a while. Read books etc.
Even Satan beieves in God..but that is not love..it is something that you feel in your soul...and its never too late in life..
One never knows what the future will be for us and our spirits...I heard this sermon on Tv..about the God sized hole in our hearts..that we try to fill with earthly things and loves..that and a lot of other things. Eventually got me..but for everyone it is personal ..and a choice...

One of life's little miracles, yeppers!!

(Actually, my parents were pretty great - but that's just my opinion. I have to remind my mom how great I turned out, every now and then, because she gives herself crap too...)

You actually think that if all 11 million+ child bearing, sexually active women went to PP for birth control that there wouldn't be any unexpected/unwanted pregnancies. It's absurd.
Just pointing out the fact, that a woman and a very active gay man on here uses precautions,and are both older and have never had any issues?!?

There could be a god but I doubt these folks have the answers.

well, that one's easy. It harkens back to pre-embalming days, when people were sometimes buried alive.

In tomtom's case, it'll be because it will take three days to allow all the people he's insulted to spit in his face. That box is going to need a spitvalve.

You had a serious talk with her when when she was 28 years old (10 plus years after her college year)?
"her mouth got better" How hard did you slap her?

Kids learn from parents' mistakes as well as good guidance. Nothing's harder for a child than to try to live up to a "perfect" parent's example.
