    His photos really give you some perspective, both physically and spiritually.
    Yes!!! We have seen some awesome pics of Calgary at night, the Rockies and a bunch of other cool stuff on our local news. I haven't been following on facebook though. Will have to check that out.

    Those images are beautiful!

    Not to keep bringing up yesterday but I am asking for good thoughts and prayers for my friend. The 2nd person named as having passed is an old friend of his and he's upset over it. Needing good vibes to help him work through his grief. Thanks everyone.

    Hoping today is bringing everyone an easier day.

    Oh Jessica, I am so sorry. I am sure there is so much devastation in your area.

    Today has been a better day. I got very little sleep last night because of my friend's mother dying. I knew I would need to travel to NC for the memorial and make arrangements for my children and other details as well as being very concerned for my friend. Today, I was able to talk to my friend and see that she is doing ok. The memorial will not be for two weeks, so I have a little more time to plan.

    All the birthday wishes on FB have been fun too. I share an account with DH (which had his birthday. It had been his account first, and we just added my name), so last year I got all of 5 birthday wishes. This year I changed the birthday (DH almost never uses FB) and have loved the birthday wishes.

    Jessica, I will keep your friends in my prayers. Not that any death is easy to deal with, but violent, senseless death is just so much harder to process. I am so sorry for your friends pain

    Thank you all.

    Bonita~I'm glad you'll have more time to plan but it is still a horrible situation. Good thoughts to you.

    I'm so sorry, Jessica.

    I have been having a very difficult day too. One year ago today, we got my mom's diagnosis, that she had terminal cancer and it was aggressive and spreading fast. The whole week has been hard and today it was almost too much for me at work. I had to step out and take a long walk in the afternoon. I can't stop thinking about that day, about everything that followed, about her suffering, and about how much I miss her. It is so hard. I know it's just a date but I can't let go of it. She died in January, she didn't even get a year and they initially thought 1-3 years.

    Hard, hard day.

    And of course in the novel I am reading, the mother just died. Oy! I do this to myself all the time. I don't mean to.

    Aw Laurie. I get it. Those are days and weeks that are not going to be forgotten and are going to be especially raw this first year. I'm so sorry. *hugs*

    AFM - We went out to dinner tonight. Caitlyn was 100% fine when we left and when we got there. Then, out of the blue she threw up. She had not been sick at all. Then after she threw up, she went back to acting fine. It was so embarrassing, and brought a halt to any other birthday plans including going shopping for my gift.

    It will be fine, and I know we will go another day instead. I also got the call while we were there that my other friend lost her mother tonight. So two of my closest friends lost their mother. One last night and one this evening. It has made it much more real that at some point I will loose my parents and IL's.

    We need something light hearted to talk about...
