Re: Gosh I miss you guys

yeah...that's kind of what I figured, too. Thanks, Pam. How have you
been anyway? I've pretty much missed out on everyone's lives for a while
now...I hope everyone knows how much and how often I think of all of you
and I do pray for all of you an awful lot...hoping of course that life
is being gentle and kind with all of you.

You're very wise my dear. Tomorrow is promised to no one. Make the most
of<br>today. But your "job" isn't done yet, so I get real positive vibes

They grew up across the street<br>> from one another since they were
little boys and it really makes Marty's<br>> heart ache to see his
friend throw his life away like this, but he's<br>> been trying like
heck for the past many months to help Sam and at some<br>> point, it is
Sam's decision...so Marty feels relieved to be away from<br>> having to
watch one of his best friends self-destruct right in front of<br>> him
and he'll be waiting for whenever Sam gets it together again.
That's<br>> the kind of guy he is...he won't ever work for Sam again,
but he'll be<br>> there when Sam needs him to be. In the meantime, I am

enjoying<br>> having at least a part time househusband (the other part
of the time<br>> he's job hunting)...I really, really need a wife!!!
LOL! As for me, God<br>> and I have been down this road before and I
kind of figure I'm not dead<br>> yet so it's best just to keep on
keeping on...got no<br>><br>> other choice. Besides, I've kinda known
for a long time that every day<br>> that I wake up is a gift...not to be
wasted or thrown away. :-)<br>><br>><br>><br>> Melody<br>> Hills, IA

guys<br>><br>> Melody - sorry about your health issues dear - please
keep us posted<br>> and<br>this will go on my list. Also a new job for
Marty. Sorry about<br>>

the job,<br>but it sounds like a good place to be gone from. His boss
is<br>> on a one way<br>ride to ruin and I wouldn't want to be anywhere
around<br>> that when the bottom<br>drops out. What a mess. Hang in

that. Got to get back to work here...<br>><br>><br>> Melody<br>>

it's<br>> much<br>harder<br>> to get that time with Rayna working full
time and going<br>> to<br>> school<br>full time and Tzeitel working full
time and taking care<br>> of<br>> 4

children and a<br>spouse. <br><br>As for your garden question,<br>>
last<br>> year<br>><br>> with trying to get mother situated in<br>the
nursing home, I wanted<br>><br>> to get the butterfly garden (which was
already a<br>weedy mess)<br>> cleaned<br>> out. It didn't happen because
of many<br>> circumstances.<br>This spring the<br>> whole bed was
totally out of<br>> control. There is no way to<br>really<br>> rescue it
now other than dig<br>> it out, salvage what I can and<br>>
start<br>over, I'm<br>><br>> afraid.<br>> If you can get the weeds out
this fall, lay brown<br>> paper<br>grocery<br>> bags over the soil
(leaving holes where plants are<br>> growing<br>> of<br>course) and
cover it with a layer of mulch, you won't have<br>><br>> that much
work<br>next spring. It worked with another garden area that<br>> I<br>>
was able to get to<br>last fall. It has been relatively easy to<br>>
manage<br>> this year while the<br>butterfly garden is just
depressing.<br>> Even the<br>>

butterflies seem to like the<br>North side driveway border<br>>
garden<br>> better.<br><br>Blessings,<br>Bonnie (SW OH - zone<br>>
