Thanks Sheila,

I'm definitely glad to be home--and hopefully I'll understand that more or better when I feel a bit more with it.

I owe everybody a post or two to let them know how I am--and I'll get to it, but there have been so many calling me and updating everyone that that will be an easy job when my body is more cooperative.

Take care, Sylvia

Sylvia:
I am positive that as this week begins, things will improve for you.  You have been through a lot and I am always amazed at your strength to push on, and to get to the next level.  I am sure it is tough on the family as well because it upsets them seeing you in so much pain.  
Sending you gentle (((((hugs)))))!!!!!, and I'm here for you if you need anything at all.  

NO MORE CLEANING (ha ha)!!!!!

Sylvia, you have been a source of support and love all along, you have weathered some of the worst .... that could be thrown at you and come up smiling every time.  You're an inspiration and the epitome of a friend ... one who reaches out to all and can be counted upon EVERY time!

Be brave kid, this too will pass!  God bless and protect you, may His healing grace come upon you and may He lift your burden of pain.

{{{{{Ross}}}}}

Thank you so much for those kind words and the caring prayers and support.  You sure have a way of making a girl feel important.

It is high time for this to shake loose and give me a break.  I'm thinking it is time for my impatience and impulsivity to become an asset and to do some assertive things to get what I need.  that is my plan now--and with help from Above, I shall succeed.

Take care--Sylvia

Sylvia,

I'm sending lots of hugs and prayers your way.  Be sure to take the time to let yourself heal.  I recently had surgery and at 46 it's hard to not think about what you are missing.  

HUGS

Sylvia, a friend can not be endebted to a friend, the gift of friendship is just that.  A gift that cannot be bartered but is of value beyond calculation.  We share our friendship and the more we give, the more we have to give, no one epitomises this truism more than you mate, even when you were really down you still had time to give of yourself to others in need.  That is the real meaning and value of the ministry of friendship.
