It’s getting easier these days to understand that life really is quite simple. It took me awhile to realize that nobody is going to rescue me and that damned Lone Ranger never ever did show up! I had to be my own hero and take control of my life.

I told my Mom the other day that I’ve gotten over myself about a lot of things but there was one thing still bothering me. We talked about it and finally she said ..Just get rid of it and get over that too! What a relief. My Mom is great for that, eliminating the fluff and getting to the heart of the matter.

It’s like climbing a mountain to get there but when you reach the top and begin descent, you can truly begin to live your life.

    I’m working on that as well, Estee! This fall has set me back, but I’m on the road to recovery and plan to make it a full recovery.

    Your views on life are wonderful Estee! Like Sheila I’m recovering and hope to have just an ounce of your spirit in tact and I know I’ll be okay. Thank you.
