"It is not length of life, but depth of life." ~ Ralph Waldo Emmerson Well folks, we are hanging in there. Lara was next in line to get the flu, so it was another evening/night of me tending to someone sick. I am ready to take off the nurse's cap thank you very much. She's not nearly as ill as Rory was in the sense of vomiting and it's 7 am and she's sleeping which is a good sign.... Read Full Entry

Thank you!
Sally, that was wonderful to read. Winnie the Pooh has always had the ability to say what I wanted to. I have given many Winnie cards for birthdays and Christmas over the years, as I often find them to be quite profound. As your Mom says, you do have a gift. I think it is because you are honest in what you are putting into words :-) I think of Billy often, too. I say Billy, because that is how I know him, not as Bill. I knew him when he was young and mischievous, but lost track of him as we often do when we get older. We all go in different directions. I can tell you that I never hear anything bad about Bill. Anyone I have ever talked to, who knew he had left us too early, has always said what a fine man he was. We are all blessed to have him in our lives. Nice to know that he will never be forgotten. Have a great time there, in spite of the flu.

Oh Sally... This sucks that the flu had to follow you all on your tropical vacation. I hope your all better, I hate to hear the kiddo's are sick while on vacation.. Wish i could take the sickness away from them. And you banging up your elbow, I felt the pain while reading it. Gees Girlie, take it easy. Your sweet words about your missed brother Bill brought tears to my eyes. Your a very kind, caring person. We need more people like you in this world and all the best.

Hey Leah, we're made of good stuff. It passed rather quickly, the issue is it lingered a bit preventing us from doing things all together at the same time. Elbow's better though! Thanks for the kind words about Bill. The words come easy when it comes to him. Hope all's well with you guys!!!
