    The older I get the more I appreciate everything, have less time for things I thought were important, I get more patient with those who just don't know stuff and are short on reasoning ability and get less patient with those who deliberately make themselves dim.

      Yep and memory slippage, and getting knackered quicker, and falling off motorbikes without any effort or grace, and agreeing to be in two places at the same time . . .

    @ steven -- thanks.

      Stevennix2001posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Your welcome.  Besides if it wasn't for you, I never would've gained a whole new perspective on life, so you've helped me out far more than you can possibly imagine. smile

    @ steven -- u did the work urself.  give urself the credit. smile

      Stevennix2001posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, but you still guided me though.  Sure, I may have done the work myself, but I never would've realized what path to take if you hadn't shown me the way.  smile

    take the blame for everything  -.0


    @ steven -- the path is always in front of you.  you would have eventually found it.  you were already at the edge of it.  i just pushed you a bit.

    1. Stevennix2001 profile image87
      Stevennix2001posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, but you were the first person to believe in me when nobody else did, so that means a lot more than you think it does.  In fact, I wouldn't still be here if it wasn't for you.  You shouldn't be so hard on yourself.  Things happen all the time, but you can't live in the past.  Besides, it's how you choose to move forward with your life is what really matters anyway.

    now, who told you that?!?  lol


    i know, i know.... i'm trying, i really am but not so easy.  my rock is going to disappear off the face of the earth and it will be me and my kids.  that's it.  no one but us 6.  scares me to death the thought that he won't be around.  ever.  gawd, if i could trade places with him, i would.  it's not fair and yes, i know, life isn't meant to be fair.  but just once, just once, i wish it was. maybe a miracle will happen.  i'm praying for one.  it's hard to keep it away from our kids.  to keep strong and smiling, laughing, calm when we know what is happening.  when we know that the inevitable is arriving.  i survived losing my son, but this time... i don't know if i will make it. 

    thanks steven.  ur there for me too.  always. 

    gtg....need more kleenex.....



    and the older i get, the more i wish i lived life to it's fullest because we don't live forever.  sad
