Kathy - You were the first thing I thought of this morning. I wanted to tell you again how much you are cared for by myself & so many others. I'm so glad you started this thread so we all have chance to express our love for you.

being humorous helped me tremendously.
i needed the humorous map,though.
i had no idea there were 2 views to humorous!

I do appreciate it deeply—and I appreciate you all, too—but don’t kid yourself: this kindness is all going straight to my head and I’m sashaying around my family like an empress, snapping my fingers and issuing edicts, like “Fetch me the remote!”

I’m rushing right in to take advantage for as long as I can get away with it!

For His name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.
This is lovely, tomsteve.

I know that you, too, live with cancer.

Prayers are always headed your way, too.

Sending you more love, dear Gilmer?

When you said that you were copacetic with Heaven or healing, I cried both tears of joy and respect. I pray to attain the same beautiful attitude as yours.

On Overs you should remember I wore out two pairs of kneecaps kicking myself in the hindquarters when my two best friends died and no one told me until it was too late to tell them they were loved, and to thank them for being in my life.

I blamed myself for not calling enough and being there for them. We lived far apart, having both been Fulltime RVrs for years, who came off the road, again like me. We still drove or flew every year or three to visit. Their wives were my good friends too. My best friend had cancer and was caring for his wife with Alzheimer's. We knew about her but he withheld about his cancer. I didn't know he was dealing with it.

The other's wife, also a buddy, cared for him the last month in Vegas. She had her daughter call me the day he died because she couldn't be the bearer of that news to me, his best friend.

You have saved us, all your friends, from wearing out any more kneecaps, by letting us know you are on the threshold, in time for us to thank you for being in our lives. Like you were driving home from our house, and looked back and tapped your horn, giving a last wave and smile, in return for ours.

Thanks for being in my life, and for sharing on and off SR.

Thanks

The copaceticness is strictly a supernatural gift from God stuck on me like a band-aid—I certainly wasn’t copacetic when I first saw the scan!

I basically had a big tantrum—then I finally broke down and surrendered—and since then I’ve had calm. I don’t take a bit of credit, because my gut reflex was not sweetness and light.

Gilmer,
if that gut reflex should rear up again, i do hope you feel you can bring it here, too.
so much love and acceptance here all around, no matter where you/we are at.
good evening to you.

Hi Gilmer,
I just saw this thread and have read a few posts. I don't have anything new it say. Adding my prayers to those of the SR Family. IDK if someone has already mentioned this in regards to the power of people united. When the Mexico fans of the World Cup, as a united group, helped the Earth shake that was HUGE to me. We can do anything when we pool our energy/prayers. Never give up, "Miracles" happen Gilmer. Remember you already are one. 💛
