    Dear Audible.com,

    Why I am so "special" that I don't qualify for your introductory offer - one free download and 30 day trial membership? I tried to go through your regular website and other discount websites - same thing. I don't want to pay for something & find out that transferring it to my Apple device will be a PIA. Bleech!

    Dear Universe,

    Seriously??? Mom loses dad, has heart surgery, loses her ability to drive and her independence, ends up on dialysis, has a small stroke, contracts pneumonia this week in the hospital... and now they find Stage IV cancer in her sinuses. Anything else?!?!

    Could you maybe let her have a little peace, please.

    Signed,

    Her Loving Daughter.

    Thanks for the kind words, all. This is such a rough road to travel.

    Dear Mom,

    I know you want to stay in this world a while longer, I'll support you in this as much as I can. And when you go I'll be there holding your hand.

    I love you

    Dear So and So

    Pax,
    I was caring for my sister who was given a terminal cancer diagnosis. They said in August she had 3 hours left. She died 6 months and 1 day later holding my hand. ( on Thursday)
    It was hard work and I really miss her but I was always going to be there with her.
    Now the hard work really starts with her kids.
