Happy Birthday Ray

Along with it being Veterans Day it would have also been Ray's 42 birthday. I still can't believe he is gone. I miss him so much. I have had a very hard time accepting his death. I have been seeing a grief counselor weekly and my Dr has been treating me for post traumatic stress. Let me tell you we all love and lose but I never knew how lonely I would feel. I was going to give up my blog and even thought I would change the name but ~Never So Simple~ seems to sum it up for me. Thanks to all of you who have stuck by me through all of my ups and mostly downs. Thanks for the kind words and hugs.


On that note what's a 100 post without a give away. It's not a lot but I wanted to get a few things together to say thanks for being my friends. I will announce a winner November 16th so you have until the 15th to enter. Make sure you tell me if you have followed me so I can enter you twice.
