Thank you for your kind words Barbara. It means a lot to connect with other people who are experiencing similar trials.
I haven't started on my messages yet. It just feels like such a huge and daunting task. I haven't fully come to grips with my diagnosis yet. I'll get started on those messages soon. I don't want to put them off for too long.
I do have a bird feeder! Watching the birds is something that brings me great joy, as you certainly know. I've recently started putting out cheese. The blue jays and the sparrows really like that cheese!
