    I don't know how long it's been, but it's been too long since I've been on here. Depression, illness, and pain have kept me in my recliner not caring to do anything but I am trying to change that starting today.
    So much has changed on here since my last visit......yay backyardchickens!! I remember when we had the contest to see what day we would reach 3000 members....wow!
    I have lost 35 chickens, 4 ducks, and 1 goose which made me more depressed so my dh got where he would not tell me. The pain has made it difficult for me to even look out the back door to see my chickens. There has been a lot of loss in my life in the past year that I won't bore you with but it's a very big reason why I haven't cared for anything. I am trying to change that today and wanted all those who knew me to know why I've been gone cause I sure have missed all yall!!! and [​IMG] Hello to the rest of yall!!

    Quote:You always cared and that is pretty obvious reading your note here.

    Look at it this way. You have been gone for a while and have a bigger family to greet you now.

    Welcome back.
