thank you for that. And that IS exactly why I feel this way...my past. It's frustrating.....I just want to feel the goodness....not be burdened with the what if's....

I understand. I still have sense that the clock is ticking but I am moe at peace with it. In truth, you won't be happy forever. No one is. Adversity strengthens us and we are all subject to it. That is why we should revel in our joy and refuse to let anxiety about what MAY happen steal it from us. Or at least do the best we can. Lol.
