Dear E&P Community,
My mom passed away March 26 this year. Our 15 year old white lab who was a companion to my sons growing up passed away in February. My dad passed away in September of 2017 & my husband of 26 years in November 2016. I am too exhausted by my grief & the grief of my 23 year-old son with autism to interact much in the real world except to go to work & church. I chose this game because my husband would’ve loved it & I needed something to numb my mind after my dad’s death.
Today was a weepy, painful day. I was so cheered by random kindness of my dear alliance mates and the camaraderie of the forum community. When I’m too spent to connect with friends, I find refuge and unexpected laughter and people helping one another here.
My heart is full because @zephyr1 added the last drop with a subtle but (to me) hysterically funny maneuver in a silly game. That kind of thing happens all the time here. To all the mods, influencers, regulars and just plain silly people here:. You are a lifeline. Your kindness,goodness & silliness is never wasted. I browse the forum like MAD magazine and Dear Abby and a Hoyles rulebook all put together and I am never disappointed.
Blessings on the camp!!!
