I was talking with Natalie last night and the subject of the board came up. I realized I've been away for 2 years now. Life has changed dramatically for my family. My daughter has blossomed into a beautiful young lady, with faults, but nevertheless a big source of help to me. My difficult child is back living with the two of us and will remain with us until he passes. difficult child was finally diagnosed last fall with a terminal disease. He is currently in the later phases of the disease, but the comfort in knowing is a tremendous help. No longer are we trying to piece a puzzle together. The raging has stopped simply because he doesn't have the strength any longer. The strong will is still evident and probably his best ally. I left my management position recently to care for him. I'm planning to work part time while he is in school. I'm at peace with life and thankful for much. I reflected on how important this board was to me for many years. My thanks. I'll be dropping in more often to be a shoulder to lean on. I'd love to hear how everyone is doing and look forward to meeting all the new faces I'm seeing.
