Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)
No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.
Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

I wish everyone no pain or fear always---Camilegal, 2014
Our spirit will transcend to a different place. Why? Because nothing has value without this belief. Why be human and humane? Why the contact? Why anything, without belief? sas, 2014
"Yes, we ALL have had crap going on in our lives, but see, you have to look at it like YOU are still HERE! And so are we! So go walk outdoors, and watch a sunset.... or the sunrise, like I am going to do in a minute! Just thank God that you get another day.... See? That's your "present" ! Chevyboy, 2014
"People are in your life, for a reason, a season or a lifetime. The why we will never know, but the knowing isn't the important part. The importance is accepting that we were blessed to have had them" sas
Pray not to survive, pray to be.......... day to day, that you deal with today, with hope that tomorrow is good to excellent. We change our old ideas about days. We change our ideas about minutes when the need is there. At first, numb. Then a fog. Then a flurry of activity. Then a slow down of activity. There's more, but I'll leave that out for now. Feel the wind, feel the warmth, and breathe........................sas

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".
