Please be kind to one another. Each and everyone needs extra hugs/love of some sort or another.
Will be taking a break soon. Going camping with some friends in CANADA. I can't wait. Going to be lots of fun. Then on a road trip with some friends for two to three weeks all over the place.
I have a NEW address now, so the temp suspension should be taken away soon. That is wwhy I was temporaily suspended. I cannot do my current swaps til then so please bear with me. Some try to cause me problems as we have all been there some time another with folks on here.
I NEED TO REQUEST THAT WHEN COORDINATOR OF WHATEVER SWAP I AM IN IF THEY CAN TRY NOT TO PARTNER ME UP WITH SOMEONE THAT HAS A LONG LIST OF DISLIKES. THIS IS TOO CHALLENGING FOR ME WITH MY BRAIN TUMOR AND ALL. THANK YOU.
The List of Five Swap took alot of time and thinking and I personally think all should have rec'd a heart. I do check back on my ratings when I rate also.
I walked 32 laps Saturday in the Cancer Relay 4 Life and am extremely sore, and hurting something fierce. Plus, after sleeping all day and night yesterday, I woke up feeling like I am suffering from a stroke on my right side now. I had one on my left over a month ago, but with the symptoms I am having it is more than likely another stroke. If I am late on swaps. PLEASE bear with me. It is not like me to send out late swaps and I am difinitely NOT a FLAKER. Thank you and God Bless.
I AM ONE THAT GIVES PEOPLE TIME TO EXPLAIN. I DO NOT JUMP TO THE GUN. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE LATE, JUST PM ME AND LET ME KNOW WHY. I HAVE SEVERAL THAT ARE CURRENTLY LATE AND A FEW THAT NEVER DID SEND TO ME AT ALL. I have been disappointed w/some I have recieved but did not make a big deal about it. I pm'd them to see how things were going, found out it was not good and they made up for it later. Blowing up on people, making false accusations is not the way to go...Patience is a virtue.
April 16 - went to my survivors breakfast at the Hampton Inn in Barstow this morning. It was wonderful.. Happy Birthday to all the survivors...

I Really like getting anything from other countries. I am 49yrs old. I have a 29yr old single son, a 24yr daughter with a 6yr old and 3 mth old girl and her husband is serving in the U.S. Marines. He has been to Iraq twice and has been injured. So if you would like to send a note or anything in you would like me to pass on to him that would be great also. I was born in Oklahoma and have/had two brothers and one sister and two step brothers and two step sisters. My one sister died as a baby from SIDS before I was born so when I was born my parents gave me the name Joy because they said it was such a Joy to them that I was a girl to replace the one they'd lost. I lost my middle brother Kent whom served in the Navy on the USS Ranger a few years ago (which still to this day tears me apart) . This is why I like anything w/Navy stuff. Then I lost one of my step sisters to Hodgekins Disease.

I love you. I need you in my life. If you can't think of any purpose at all for being here, think of that one. Without you, my life would be that much emptier, and I'm not the only one who feels that way. We're not put here to necessarily make big, sweeping changes to society. Not everyone can find the cure to cancer or pull children from burning buildings or save the world from terrorism. We're here to make a difference in any way we can, even if it's just what seems like a small way. Every person you've made smile in your life, every person you've hugged, every person you've given encouraging words to realizes your importance. You've made a difference in the lives of those people, even if you never see them again. You've made an imprint, and the day you leave this world is the day that someone's heart breaks, mine at the very least. @Gayle
