This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Dear Mary Jane,
What a wonderful gift...happy (belated) Mother's Day.
Sending you hugs,
First may I say how glad I am to hear that you feel better - feeling poorly physically on top of our grief can truly weigh us down more than other people realize. May your health continue to improve!!!
Secondly, thank you for sharing such a personal gift with us - your daughter is an angel, and her love for you shines through that video, as well as in her lovely smile which matches yours. Such caring and generosity of spirit isn't something learned anyplace other than from our home and those who raise us - quite obviously you and your wonderful husband Bob created a home full of love, joy, and compassion, thus sending into the world your gift of a young woman who will spread happiness and positive energy. Well done, Mary Jane, to you both!!!
I have not posted much for a while, and will try to get caught up eventually, but you and all my treasured family here are ever-present in my thoughts and prayers - wishing all a peaceful weekend, and as we individually confront and deal with our personal milestones and special days, I send out my love and many hugs to help us through the rough ones...
Dear Trina ... It is so good to see you post and I think of you often wishing with all my heart you have found some peace. Thank you for the lovely compliment, but I can't take all the credit because everyone here is an angel and what a group we are!
Take care Trina and hope your weekend is peaceful.
Dear Georgia ... I was honored to wish Louie a Happy Birthday and I know he was right there with you. I truly believe that. Ever so often I can feel Ernie around me. I know hon what a difficult time it is for you trying to celebrate, but again I do impress upon you Louie was right there. Here is a wonderful saying a friend gave me and I have it on my fridge:
IF I LISTEN CLOSELY I CAN HEAR THE RUSTLE OF ANGEL WINGS AND KNOW THAT YOU'RE STILL WITH ME.
I hope the above gives you some peace as it has me. Truthfully I have experience a breeze going by me when I'm in my house and no doors or windows are open; sometimes a shiver runs down me as if I've been touched my a kind hand and I believe it's Ernie. Other times I feel as if someone is watching me or looking over my shoulder.
Have peace my dear friend and remember the above.
Love & Hugs
It's heartbreaking to be facing the birthday of your darling spouse when s/he is no longer with us. All the milestones are tough, but perhaps birthdays are more so, because how can we "celebrate" when they are not here with us? But we can celebrate by remembering the good times and all the beautiful, loving memories that we shared with our spouse and soulmate. We are in a terrible situation. Our love is gone, and here we are trying to make sense of what we have been thrown into.
Thinking of you and sending you good vibes. Hugs, Trina
PS Marsha is a wonderful person; she is always here to reach out to us and to give us encouragement and support.
