I took a walk in the rain today. I like to walk, and weather doesnt stop me. I reflected about 2012. My friend murdered, Bob's illness, all the shootings in the country( two in the Milwaukee area) deaths of Roadfood friends. It was interesting as I could not tell the difference from my tears and the rain. However, I am healing. You all, as a community, have been great. I turn to all of you more often than others. All of you. Thanks for the love, or perhaps not. Its always good.

    When times are rough friends are very important.
    HUGS, Annie.
    Hope your holidays are happy.

      A walk in the rain is good for the soul. Yours doesn't need any help.

          A horrible year for you Anne. I hope the sorrows will ease and your pain will lessen.

            I do a similar thing, Ann.  I travel alot and I love to do a lot of early morning driving.  Little traffic, and a good time for reflection.

              I've been away from this site for a couple years.  I just saw your note. I'm hoping this wintry year has been kinder to you and yours than 2012 was.

                  I, too, missed this post in December. I had a similar year in 2001. I feel for you, and I pray that 2013 will be a dramatic turn around filled with joy!
                  For me, 2002 started great with the birth of my nephew on Jan 1 (the first baby in Niagra County, NY of 2002), and continued with some personal successes in music and several good turn of events for my family.
                  I hope the positives of life are surrounding you!

                    Thanks, Scorereader!As Bob said, we have to concentrate on what love is around us, not what doesnt love us.
