Sea Of Heartbreak

I had a really good post planned for this morning until I got home from work and checked my email and got one that I didn't expect and just ripped my guts out...

Sorry all, but I really don't feel like writing today. 2005 hasn't been a banner year for me and this morning was just the icing on the cake. I try so hard to look on the bright side these days but looking deep inside right now all I'm seeing is blackness and acrimony...
First the empty seat next to me at the annual Fire Department Christmas dinner last week, now this.

I'll write about it later, maybe. But right now I just don't feel up to it. Right now I feel like reading something cheery and uplifting... Maybe something by Ernest Hemmingway.

I'm a huge Papa fan, but may I make another suggestion.

Read the book of Job. It has helped me put things in perspective.

If that doesn't help, go fishing. That always improves my mood.

We are all hear to listen! :)

So sorry that you're feeling that way...
Berly's right - we're always here to listen.

Step away from the ledge, RT. It's not worth it.

(Ok, maybe it's not that drastic, but keep your chin up, chief.)

It sounds like you've experienced a loss. And if so, I'm so sorry.
