Stamping has and is just so special for me.

This great hobby of ours has come to my rescue in some very difficult situations over the last 13 years or so because of my physical conditions.

Things were going along very well with stamps being a big part of my lifestyle and I had the impression that in the physical and my general well being that everything was healing very nicely.

But with some very bad news and more tests to come I was feeling very overwhelmed and unable to get my stamping together or anything else for that matter.

But my family has come to my rescue. Things are still very painful but it has highlighted just how blessed I am to have a family who cares about me and my stamping. As well I have an online stamp community to help me smooth out the rough spots in stamping. It is very humbling indeed.

My family has helped me today to get together tomorrows listings. How special is that. All I have to do now is scan the lots and the prep is finished.
Hopefully I will be able to do the listings. I will try my very best to do this tomorrow with a positive attitude.

One of the issues is my spine is crumbling and as yet we do not know why but unfortunately my spine is connected to my brain and I hope very much I have not upset a very special SCF friend that has indirectly been caught up in all this and really has no idea.

When I have felt isolated in the past and now it is so nice to have my very special SCF to turn too. For me it helps a great deal to talk about this stuff. It is the first steps of healing.

Who knows what the future will bring. Lets hope it is something that is easy to fix. It is so nice to have family and friends.

Always Happy Stamping. KGV

KGV Thanks for and friends (and a hobby) are most important....i was listening to a speaker on tv the other evening ..he was talking about.."self made men" and he said that there is no such one makes it on their own...most of what I know about stamps did not come from my extensive reading about them or the internet..but from conversations with amazing stamp collectors I have known through my stamp club the past 40 years !!

Thanks for sharing your story. A loving family is the key to go on.
Don't give up.

A prime example of not giving up is my cousin's child who has Muscular Dystrophy and who has been in a wheelchair since he was 7 or 8. No one thought he would make it past his teens. He has an attitude of not giving up and is now in his 20's and just graduated Community College and already has had a job interview.

Tests are just things for doctors to do so they have something to do it seems to me at times. It is more worry for the person (patient) that is warranted sometimes and I know worry can get out of hand also.

Whatever is happening or has happened, the best thing is the love and support from all the people around you, including us here at Stamp Community. The human body can endure and recover from amazing hurts and ills as we both know.

What brings us back time and again is the faith and hope and love we have in the people around us and our feeling of support from them. Of course there is also God, luck and chance but the biggest thing is that support from them and us and from you.

Hoping for the best and wishing I was there to help,
