When life sends you lemons, make Margaritas. Get liquored up. It works most of the time.

Mandy, you rock. Your problem, whatever it is, may seem insurmountable, but YOU are bigger and better than any problem life can kick your way. So deal with it if you can, or ride it out if that's the only option, but in the end you'll be on your feet, a survivor, and stronger than ever. Even if you can't see it right now, picture the rainbow waiting on the other side of this dark cloud.

As we are to have you as part of our family. And sometimes I think better than family because we choose to be part of all of this. And so when when one of us share something (either they are felling down or something good has happened) that is how we all feel. So as crazycatperson has said you are a survivor so fix what ever it is if you can and if you can't don't give it any more power or control...kick it to the curb!

It seems that I take one step forward, then I take three steps back. I would appreciate it if you could keep sending good vibes, pixie dust, prayers or however you encourage others my way please. Thank you.

Hi Mandy,
Sending you lots of good thoughts and I hope everything gets better for you soon.

When I was going through my tough times I kept telling myself that God/fate/life (whatever you believe in) only sends you what he knows you are strong enough to deal with. When you get through difficult times and look back, there is nearly always something good to come out of it, even if it is just knowing you made it through and things are looking up.

I was just wondering to myself last night how you were doing - I'd noticed you hadn't been posting as much lately. I hope everything works out in the end. I can say from experience that sometimes what you think is the worst, most horrible thing turns out to be exactly what was needed to send you down a new path, with happiness waiting at the end. Here's hoping that in a little while, you will look back on all this and actually be maybe not glad, because no one wants or needs drama in their life, but at least content with how it resolved.

Lots of good wishes and whatever else you need coming your way. muchlove
