Thank you!

Just wanted to say thanks to all the readers that posted comments and emailed me regarding my Things I've Been Missing Lately post last week. Your words of concern and encouragement are much appreciated.

It's amazing how a week and some much needed perspective courtesy of Orville and others (See comments) has me looking at my situation with my "glass half full" goggles on. His statement of...and I quote...

"From where I stand, you are just wasting more of your youth pining away for what's gone. By the time you figure out everything you've lost, more has gone out the door."

Wow how true is that? Way to hit me where I live Orville!

He is SO right! My life is not perfect and either are all the decisions I have made, but I have a great life and have no reason to be sulking. That old expression "it could be worse" really applies here and my problems are really petty compared to others.

Thanks for the heaping spoonfuls of perspective.

I would like to get back to that too, but when things aren't going's hard to think of much else.

I have lots of stuff to write about and plan to get back to "business as usual" in the weeks to come.

Thanks for reading!

Hello Jim,

You know, it's funny you mentioning about your parents. It reminded me about my parents, gone these many years now. I miss them. I wish I could phone them up.

I guess you haven't detailed all of your troubles on this website.

Take care of them and good luck.
