Even though I'm new on here, I truly look forward to talking to you guys every day. I love getting to see what sorts of adventures everyone else has going on in their lives, and at times it's nice to know I'm not alone in my worries or frustrations. We all lead very different lives yet come together and have a good time talking and joking and sharing ourselves.

DB - Take care of yourself and do what you need to stay relaxed and worry free. As the wife of a Veteran who has suffered from PTSD and sought counseling, I know what an important role you play in the lives of those men. Even though at times I know you must feel broken yourself, the healing that you guide them through is something that not everyone can accomplish. You give them the chance to open up and break free from something that is so incomprehensible to the average person. I often find myself amazed at the things I know my husband has seen and done (he was a USMC scout sniper) and how he is still capable of functioning as a normal human being. I get upset even thinking about people being hurt or killed, I truly can't imagine what it is like to be on the front lines staring it in the face. Your strength and willingness to help your fellow brother are quite admirable DB, thank you for making a difference.

I have always had the saying that the very best gift you can give someone is your time. It's the one thing that you can never get back.

There's not much I can say after all of that except wow!

There are so many in need of our thanks and prayers. I am very thankful to all those in uniform.

That's what I like about this thread also. It is a nice break out of the monotony (or crazy confusion depending on how the planets are aligned that morning) of the day and reading about what everyone else is doing. I've gotten so comfortable here that I forget that this forum is open to the public and that anyone can read it - LOL - it is like we are in our own little world here.

I have been away from everything technological for awhile - this is the first I've heard of the fertilizer explosion. WOW! I am going to have to read up on all the news.

Well, I didn't get squat for rain. It drizzled for about two hours, and then just got cold and windy. Did anyone else get torrents or hail or anything like that? It barely watered my garden. The cold tonight better not mess up my tomatoes - I've got a zillion green tomatoes out there as big as golf balls that I want to see mature so I can eat them.

We didn't get much rain either. It's been misting on and off the past couple days, then it POURED here for about 30 minutes, and now it's stopped. :/

ETA: Enough to water the grass in the horses' paddock, though! Always a good thing :)

EMS when are you moving down here exactly? My best friend's hubby just got headhunted for an awesome job in Memphis and she is leaving me in June - we've been miserable for days - our friendship sort of snuck up on both of us over the last couple of years and then over the past half year or so it has gotten to the point where we chat almost everyday and meet up to let our kids play at the very least, three times a week - we feel like sisters being adopted by two different families. UGH. You know how the universe shifts to keep the balance - so it is funny that you are leaving and she is going to TN.

I haven't had a girlfriend that close since high school - I've always just been wrapped up in family for so long - weird how that stuff can sneak up on you. Now I am going to have these huge holes in my schedule every week that I don't exactly know what I'm going to fill them with - if I don't keep busy with something, I'll just get depressed and turn into a fast food guru again. This is just crazy - it feels just like it does when someone passes away. Sheesh!

Awww I'm sorry to hear you will be losing your friend How ironic though...I am moving there in June! I hope you're able to adjust ok, I'm sure you will

I totally expect to be depressed and homesick when we move. I don't deal with change well, and I really don't like moving. It will take some adjusting that's for sure
