After i read all of those replys i was like dang it I am out and then i remebered something that is so much fun.  Take your whole family to the rollerskating rink.  Make sure every one rollerskates k?  Even if you cannot do it very well.  It is fun to laugh at every one falling down and clinging to the wall and if you do not like roller skating go there and just watch all the little kids learning how to skate.  It is so much fun.  I am so sorry about what happened.  I hope that you feel better.  *hugs*

Mmmm, I'm not known well by the majority of you.  I was hesitant about posting a thought I had, but felt it was to important to not say.  Hope it comes across as I thought it!

When I am down and depressed I have a routine of things I can do to try and take my mind off of things.  I assume this means that alot of the depressed feelings is based on what my mind is thinking about.  Yet, many of the items on my list are temporary distractions from what is usually a large problem.  Eventually, for me I have to understand what is going on, try to fix it or accept that its something I can not change and find out how to live with it.  Given that is the later, learn how to cope with it, the most redeeming thing I have ever felt is the love of friends and family.

Finally I get to my point.  There is something to be said about the expression of love in time of need.  To truly escape from the binds of depression you have to walk through it, but when I read the responses you got in this thread it was really an inspiration.  It reminds me of;

"Footprints

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from anguish,
sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints,
so I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,
my child, is when I carried you.”

by Mary Stevenson"

You can even take the references to the "Lord" and replace them with friends or family names and it rings so true.

I appreciate you posting this thread and I am glad I got the opporunity to read the hearts of so many that care for you.  Maybe, it helps you to know that your outcry cured a small bit of depression I was going through myself today.  Hope this comes across like I think I've said it.

Let's all get the same tattoo, a tiara and I'll show you mine if you show me yours

Sea, Tori and I dress that way quite often, Karen knows this.  We head uptown dressed worse than tacky tourists and enjoy the uptight people who look at us.  It has to be their problem not ours, and we make sure it is before we head home hopping and skipping I might add.

Karen, your idea to create a new braid of two strands is a great idea, but weave into it some memories of Cathy for glue.  You could create a dedication page to her on your site?  Let everyone know why she was so special.

Before I shut up I loved Josh's last paragraph - that hit my heart hard, hope it shows you that for everything as you know there is a reason.

Now about that tattoo?  You up for the challenge?  If you are I will do it too

Karen . . . plant, plant, plant . . . get your hands in that dirt . . . you and Twist can do that together . . . and if you don't want to get your hands in the dirt then have Twist get her hands in the dirt and you can run barefoot in it!  See?  I can picture that too . . . Twist planting being all serious and you whipping your sandals off and running through what she had tilled . . .

Create life, Lady . . .  

The roller skating works . . . awesome idea . . .I wanna go do that now.

And too bad for you, you will get something soon, but here is another
for you and for
Twist and when you go to sleep,
right before. . .
just say the 23rd . . .
it always works for me . . .

Skating is a good idea. Just went not too long ago, I felt like an idiot but it was fun.

Tattoo? Count me in.....

Contact your local Relay For Life chapter and find out if they need volunteers. You don't actually have to participate in the walk, there are many different ways you can volunteer your time. My wife and I are volunteers this year. We are doing the registration for the survivors dinner and then picking up pizzas for the day of the event. You can click on this link http://www.cancer.org/docroot/GI/gi_1.asp to find a relay near you.

This was just too much fun today.  I was at Wal-Mart of all places, in the toy department, and I pushed every single button on every single thing there, that I could get my finger on!  The best part was that entire display of singing and dancing hamsters, and I especially loved, the "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" one and thought of you while I hid then pushed those ones all over again     in honor of a witch in N'Arlins. In case you want to pick a favorite button to push ahead of time, here ya go.

I have actually given critters to people here in Pipps too (think I annoyed them?)

Hugging you both...

and this is really, truly, the hardest thing anyone has never not asked me to do...

I miss her, everyday.

I light candles every night.

I don't know what or who I am praying for anymore, but it feels good, and just looks good, to let the lights flicker on the wall.

I light alot of candles now.

I won two ivies at the church fair, and they frame the window, like good omens. I bought glass roses for my sisters grave, because glass doesn't die, and now they are sitting there like an accusation...I was told I'd have a ride today, for sure.

I know I ain't right folks.

I'm sorry.

sigh



Last night I let my daughter dye my hair honey blonde for something fun to do.

It came out light brown.

Grin.

It looks like it did when she was born...but she's thrilled, too.

Tonight? highlights!

yay

and?

American Idol

life is good anyway

I'll cook up some hamburger helper and pray for Bo Bice. *grin*

We knew it was between him and Constantine anyhow.

day-um

I can only ditto Josh's comment, serenity. You see, on those days when I find the dark side of the sun, all I need do is come read your seeds, and become regenerated. No matter how bad some things seem, you always seem to leave a seed of hope...and encouragement.

Those two things, hand in hand, make a beautiful garden for Cathy's memory.

Karen dear heart, you are as right as rain and have nothing, absolutely nothing to apologize for. I am going to join you in lighting a candle for Cathy...then I am going to light one for you....and pray that you can "see" the flickering flame in my window.....and know that thought miles may part us .... I hold you in my heart. Wish I could hug you. Chrislane

Just checking in to see how you are,  and I wanted to tell you the "hair thing" is going around.  I streaked mine too, and I love it!  I did it backwards though, and put brown in!  What fun in re-inventing yourself.  Cher does it all the time right

Hope you got a ride today to plant your footprints where they need to be.
