Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

Rest in Peace

In life we celebrate many holidays, many events. We live, laugh, and learn. If there is anything more precious than being able to be yourself, it's the joy and the opportunity to learn from another human being to become a better you!

I am often amazed at how many powerful and unbelievably strong people I met in this world. I tried to be strong, but occasionally I broke down. Then after I recovered, I try a little harder, then I broke down again. Breaking down for me it is not like having to go to the mental institute or anything like that, it is not being able to give my best to my love ones that day. I've got too many people depending on me to break down, or to give up.

Thank you for your kind words regarding my SO's father- his life line went flat this morning. The above description also holds true for how my SO is holding up. He is driven to give his best even at the time he is weakest. Emotional roller coaster, up and down, as I recalled this goes on for quite some time after you've lost someone you love. One minute you are feeling okay, the next minute, you are trying to hold yourself together!

It is okay to mourn and take time to soak-up, my darling...
No, he is determined to go forth and not let the emotions get in the way. To "celebrate life" the way his dad wanted. Emotionally, my SO has always been the rock, his temperament and his patience is to be envied and I admire such self sufficiency.

Below is a picture of Trinity brushing Mr. Rabbit, putting him into a nice and purr-y mode. He was quite happy and content to have all this attention. He too seemed to have "rested in peace."

  3. We know Loren's Dad is now resting peacefully after a valiant struggle. He gave it his all. Among the tears we know his strength is being carried on by your SO. He is a very unique nephew & I love him for it.. The mold was thrown away when he became the man he is. Thank You for the support you give him during this very tough time. Will see you soon at the "Celebration of Life Ceremony." Love & Hugs

  5. "It is okay to mourn and take time to soak-up, my darling... " - yes, it is okay to mourn and to listen to our emotions, one way of healing faster. I am sorry to hear about this, but I am glad to know as well your family is strongly holding on together. God bless SO's father's soul, and may your family continue to be blessed with strength during this tough time.
