Bob thank you for a wonderful blog. Just a quick idea of where I’ve been since I ran across this. I was married for 27 years and became a widow at the age of 47. The first year, I flailed around. slogging through jello as I like to call it. I can’t tell you how many times I caught myself saying I need a life coach! Please don’t get me wrong I have many amazing friends, and I am a Christian, but sometimes you just need to slow down and live! I’ve gained new perspective and greatly appreciate all I’ve seen here. Keep going Bob… you just never know the impact your writing has on others!!!
