      1. Most kind. πŸ™‚ Haha I was going to put an explanation in front of it, but then decided that would defeat the object, even if it meant no-one would try to read it… such is the price of trying to be enigmatic. πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha well I’m glad you persevered. Thankyou Margaret. πŸ™‚
      Yes, it takes quite a lot of strength to face up to things that are unpalatable… but we definitely end up healthier for it, don’t we? πŸ™‚

      1. Just like germs that build up our immune system πŸ™‚ yes, healthier for it. Everything is a learning experience. It sounds clichΓ© but true. We either learn each lesson and move on, or we failed the class, so to speak on this lesson, and keep doing it until we pass πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Gabe… a little kudos from your good self goes a long way. πŸ™‚

      I’m awfully sorry, though, but I’m not understanding the reference to church? Haha it’s highly likely that I’m being dense, of course(!)

    1. Haha, thank you… I’m trying to be a little more creative, generally, and think outside the box a bit. πŸ™‚
      It’s a quite bad anxious time, I’m afraid, but I’m hanging on in there.
      I hope all’s OK with you? Very nice to see you — will be checking out your blog again ASAP!

        Moving forward’s what it’s all about… one step at a time. πŸ™‚ πŸ€— x
