Today is my birthday and it's my first day on my lot

Malawi
November 22, 2009 9:24pm CST
Hello everyone. Just thought I'd introduce myself as it's my first time on here and I don't really know much about this place. I found this website via a social forum and one of the guys there recommended that we try my lot. Anyway my name is Shadow and I live in Connecticut with my twin children (one boy and one girl). I've just been a widow recently as my husband died exactly six months ago today. He died on my birthday so that was pretty much the worst present I've ever recieved. But we had a good old 24 years together and had it not been that dreadful cancer that took him I'm sure I'd be blowing my candles later. All in all my two kids make it easier to go through life and even though I haven't fully recovered from his loss, I just want to share a laugh or two with some new people, and make some new friends. I'm very timid and shy in real life so I'm hoping to gain a little confidence in myself by sharing good friendships with people in here. I've been told that this place is filled with nice people so I hope I will get to find some really good friends here. Thank you for reading this and any help in getting around here is much appreciated.

Hi shadow welcome to mylot. I also new here, well just well over two months and i can say that I'm enjoying myself here so far. Sorry about your husband, it seems like you're still full of pain based on what you shared. Being married, I knew that I too would have to go through the same sooner or later. Mylot is a good way to vent out your feelings and I'm sure a lot here will be able to share what they gone through also. So we may not be able to give you a real hug, just find consolation in our words. I hope you can you can move on sooner than later, after all life is too short. Cheers!

Thank you for your kind words. They sure do compensate for the hugs. Yes I intend to move on but I'm quiet slow at moving at moment, but I'll get there someday.

I typically don't respond to the discussions who have TONS of responses already but you're special. Hehehe...HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm actually affected by cancer too, though my father is doing well. Still going through some aches and pains caused by treatment. I'm dedicating a run with American Cancer Society for him actually. In April. Anyway, I'm sure that your husband is proud of you. And I'm sure your kids are too! Happy happy birthday. All the best to you and yours. And I hope that you'll find what you're looking for - friendshipwise - here in mylot. WELCOME!

First of all, I would like to say that I am very sorry about your husband. In myLot - as you have seen from all these responses - the people are very friendly and the discussions are very interesting. Everyone will rush to help out a new member. On myLot, you get paid for any discussions you start or any responses or comments you post. It is a relief to see that you haven't asked about the earnings in your discussion - it shows that you aren't in it for the money To make friends, you should remember to comment on the responses you receive; this keeps the conversation going. Use these links to help you out: http://www.mylot.com/o/topguidelines.aspx http://www.mylot.com/o/faq.aspx Welcome to myLot! I hope you enjoy your time here and make some new friends!

Very Many HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY ShadowCatt. I wish you come out of the harsh reality soon for cute children's sake. They are the presents of your beloved husband and he has left them with you thinking that they will be taken care of with love and affection. It is a big responsibility and pleasant too. For this reason at least, face the present time boldly friend. You require lot of good health and courage to make your children grow well. We, here, too require good friends like you. In Mylot, many good hearted members are there. Take it from me, withing short time, you will find many good friends here. Post discussions of your choice and respond to other's discussion. Your knowledge and English will improve and you will also earn here. This is a genuine site and fun giving too. Once you start participating in Mylot, you will come to know about the site more. Welcome to Mylot my dear friend, Have a happy mylotting.
