A Circle of Comfort for Raven

My dear friend RAVEN is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have ever encountered.

Any time I'm down. Any time Mia or Siren is ill. Whenever one of my posts sounds forced happy ...

Raven always calls or e-mails to check on me. She offers to listen. She offers reiki. She offers wisdom and wit. She offers love and laughter.

Raven's brother Phil died on May 27. She has posted a beautiful tribute to him. To the memories of childhood. To the realities of difficult relationships. To the pain and conflict of loss.

As is everything about Raven - her post for her brother is genuine and human, touching and wise.

We are a wonderful circle of people who share so much with each other - please take a moment to extend the circle to RAVEN.

Peaceful journey Phil ...

I can relate. I lost a brother last year. Thank you for posting and commenting on my blog, as I haven't been to Raven's blog in a while and didn't know. I know Raven from the One Single Impression poetry blog.

Aw.... speaking of beautiful, kind people. Thank you for this, Dianne. Perhaps your kind readers will also pay a call on Dawn Treader who lost her mother very unexpectedly yesterday.

i feel very bad for raven, dianne,
when i lost my brother david, i thought the whole golden family would never get over it and in a way we haven't.
he was only about 32 and mom and dad golden still miss him so much.
he was like raven's phil..he just loved cats and i always say that is a cat likes a person that this person can always be trusted.
i know it is a few weeks since raven has lost her brother but i will go later and give her my condolences dianne.
it was so good of you to mention this...love terry

Phentermine resin became available in the United States in 1959 and Phentermine Hydrochloride in the early 1970s.

How does Phentermine work?
Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.
The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.

How should this phentermine be used?

Phentermine comes in tablets and extended-release capsules. It usually is taken as a single daily dose in the morning or three times a day 30 minutes before meals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take phentermine exactly as directed.

The reason why there is a line is because one team is going to be favored over another to win the game. This way the oddsmakers can level the playing field, making the bet attractive to both sides. In this case San Diego is the favorite and New England is the underdog. This means that if you are placing your bet on San Diego, the Chargers will have to beat the Patriots by at least 3 points for you to win the bet. If they lose the game or win by less than 3, you lose your bet. The second number shows 44, which is the over/under score. By betting the over, you are putting money on the possibility that the sum of both team’s score will be greater than 44-points at the end of the game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
