    I Believe.....
    That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
    Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery
    Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

    happiness isn't achieved by getting extra things,
    but by getting rid of the things that make you unhappy

    If you have built castles in the air, your work should not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

    Hi HHD
    I am just catching up after several quiet years on here, and saw your news. I am so sorry that you and your husband have got this challenge. Health is paramount isn't it, knocks everything else into perspective.
     I just wanted to send my good wishes and thoughts. You were very kind to men here when I was going through the worst of my debt journey. 
    Virtual hugs x
