Re: life IS good

Auralie, you're a wise woman.  Every soul has their own path to walk and their own destiny to follow.  It must be difficult for a parent to watch their child make what they consider mistakes and not interfere or judge unnecessarily.  I guess that's all part of the process.  But your advise is excellent and sound.  More power to you!!

Merry Christmas
