my husband and I have been divorced since 1990. For a while it was pretty awful, but over time we became closer friends than we ever were when we were married (16 years of marrage). Before I had a stroke Halloween 2013, we lived in the same little town and often helped each other out. He didn't have a car and I drove him to the store usually on Saturdays after he took me to breakfast. We did other things for each other and I even took him along with me twice on week long trips a few years ago to see a couple of our sons, one in Texas and one in Oklahoma. I wouldn't marry him again, but we have become friends. Since the stroke I have been in Texas near one of my sons, but he still calls me about once or twice a week to see how I'm doing. He has troubles with alcohol but in other ways we are really good friends. In fact I think now he is the closest friend I have, even if we're far apart (about 800 miles) geographically. It wasn't that way when married but funny how we've become so much closer apart than we ever were together.

My husband. We have been together for 46 years. Even though we no longer live together and he has some addiction issues he is struggling with, we remain very close.

First of all my God for taking such good care of me and forgiving me and always being with me. Second to all my family who have blessed me in so many ways.

I'm listening to the Interfaith service on tv honoring those police officers who gave their lives ast Thursday night in Dallas when a shooter targeted white policemen at a rally because of hate. So many outpourings of love and support all over our metroplex and even though this act was evil the love and coming together or so many people from all kinds of backgrounds. Hopefully this will carry further. President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, their wives, and a bunch of other dignitaries are there. Other cities had their police departments from the metroplex come together to do as much as they could for Dallas so as many as possible of Dallas police officers were free to attend this servce.

I would thank my daughter for her caregiving and God for his mercy and his many blessings.

JUST FOR TODAY, ONE DAY AT A TIME

Morning friends,

Today's Question: Let's just say your life is a TV show and you won an emmy for playing yourself so well.... Who would you like to thank?

I would thank God first for making me who I am, My Mom for all her support while growing up and all her wisdom, and my hubby for all his love.


No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!
