  • Mary Kaufman

    You got lucky! Let that give you a feeling of gratefulness and heed the doctor’s advice. You have been in my mind for awhile as can happen when people have been changed “for good.” I still believe in the interconnectedness of all things. Trust in the people that are there for you. That strength is always there. The world is changing …for the better actually…a surprise and a gift to us all. Remember you are a person first and foremost, and what you do with that is always up to you, but make it a point to choose to live well because you are loved and life is worth living. And if you need to be reminded see the Cat.
