9 months post death...

Posted on July 30, 2011 at 8:00am 2 Comments

Who am I?  How did this happen? This wasn't part of the plan.

I will soon face the 9th month since my husband died as the result of an auto accident. 

I have found that I can face life without him but I don't like it. 

I don't like it that I now have people call me "Miss McCormick". 

I don't like it that I have to face life without him by my side.

I ache to hear his voice, laughter, comforting words, feel his hug, and even hear him clear…

My tribute to my husband Dave written on his birthday and Father's Day June 19th, 2011.

Dave,

I wish I could be with you today, to thank you again for the gift of your love.

You are the friend that captured my heart and I never dreamed today we’d be apart.

Thank you so much for helping me to be strong; you lifted my spirits and gave me a song.

You brought joy to my life in so many ways; your love was a gift I treasure in my heart today.

Thank you for so many memories of love and laughter and for those three little boys we both had to chase…

Life will never be the same....

I grew up with Dave - he was a childhood friend of my older brothers.  He always made me laugh.  He also always wanted me to be his girlfriend.  I just wanted to be his friend until my junior year of high school.  I realized I really did care more for him and was so blessed to have such a great friend that made me feel adored.  We were married in Sept. of 1974 after I graduated from high school.  We had three sons together and 6 grandchildren.  We have helped our youngest son raise his two…

Sheryl,

Hi- it's been a long time. I hope things are improving for you and yours. I imagine you, like me have been able to ween yourself away from this wonderful support group towards whatever it is that is occupying your time these days. I come here every rare once in a while & check on everyone. I would love to hear from you. You have been an inspiration to me. I am  wondering about your health as well as your granddaughter. Prayers & best wishes for you & yours.

Hugs,

Christy

Sheryl,  I'm terrible about posting although l do get on and read quite often.  A few days ago a post came back on from months back.  I had mentioned how l would cocoon myself in a blanket while listening to Breathe On Me. You said you were going to try to find it.  Did you?  I hope you did it is a truly comforting, it has a part that says take me to your Sanctuary, sometimes I feel like I get there.  Hope you are having more good days with happy memories.  HUGS

Hello Sheryl, just a 'hello' to let you know I am thinking of you & sending up prayers of comfort & healing for you & yours.

God Bless,

Christy

Thank you Sheryl for your prayers & encouragement. I am praying for you & yours also. Sorry to hear about the skin cancer- it sounds scarey but you are doing all you can do. Try not to let it worry you.  I think sometimes that fear kills us quicker than any sickness. "Fear ye not" I remind myself of that frequently. God commands us not to be afraid. He is pretty straight forward about that one. Dealing with the loss of our husbands seems to be full of important lessons like this. Obedience, trust,... these are not easy or fun but they are essential to our faith. I have been having difficulties, but I have also had lots of blessings to counter balance them. I just want him back so bad I can't stand it! Sometimes it feels as if it just happened & it has been almost 1 year. I feel so lost at times. So many little things that really bother me to the point of wanting to snap. There is a man at work who aggravates me daily w/ comments about wanting to get me drunk or give me drugs or take me on a trip! I really have a hard time treating it like a casual joke when I feel he is constantly "hitting" on me. I can't stand this guy! My boss is a compete--- & I wonder how I will manage to stay here another year to receive my retirement (if that's even what it is- I will be fully"vested" after August 5, 2012). Sheryl, I need your prayers. Thank you so much for remembering me. I will be fine. It's just tough right now. I wish you well~ HUGS~

Hello Sheryl, thank you for the note. Life has been busy. At times, far too busy. Yes, grief still takes a portion of most days no matter how busy or how much I try to get around it. I took vacation from my job last week. I enjoyed it, although I got in the way of myself & had very little time actually on the beach. I did see my nephew play ball 2 nights which was great. He plays for the Wilmington Sharks. They went 11 innings the first night, so it was extremely close, but they lost. The next night was close but they won. He is a pitcher. Lots of fun. I also met a friend from high school that lives there & haven't seen her in about 20-25 years! That was fun too. I had lots of class work that took up a majority of my time that was a real aggravation. I also was very busy working on Larry's nonprofit's website. Larry's high school reunion was last night & I was trying desperately to have it ready by then. I only had 1 week's notice, but thought it would be a rare fund raising opportunity. I still have things to do to have it 100% but it's up. If you have time, I'd love you to visit & see what you think. It's address is:

www.larrydbradleyfoundation.org

It has been a hard week & really, a hard month. Today has been 10 months since Larry's death. I would do anything to have him back. It's not easy to look forward when things behind were so wonderful.

I hope you & yours are getting along better. I keep you in my prayers.

Thank you again for being in touch. 

Hugs,

Christy

Sheryl I understand how you must feel. At times like these it's important to submit it all to God, asking in prayer that His will shall be done with Michaela. In that way we can obtain peace regardless of the outcome. She will either be healed & continue to share herself with all of you here for a time, or she will be welcomed home by Grandpa Dave & the heavenly hosts. One day we will all unite "on that glorious shore" and live the everlasting life God has prepared for us. I believe.

Hey Sheryl, thanks for your message. I understand about father's day and how hard that will be. Know that I will be thinking of you and sending you good thoughts to try and help you through. Nothing else I can say would be anything more than stuff we have hashed out many times on this site. Just know that there are many people here who care about you.

Sheryl, as soon as I woke this morning you and your granddaughter and family were on my heart and I said a prayer for you. I wondered how she was. Now I see your messg. & can only pray that by his stripes she is healed and that God's will be done. My heart breaks for you & yours over this precious child. I wish there were more I could do.

Sheryl, thank you, I am fine. I was bit by a rattlesnake. I spent 3 days in the hospital, but all is well. Upon release, the "snake expert" said it was evidence of "divine intervention." I found out later, that 5 days before I was bit, a man was bit & died from the same type of rattlesnake bite in a nearby town. I think it helps me understand better that none of us will go before our time. That hurts, but I am realizing that this is not my "game" and I must be willing to submit to the one in charge, like it or not. Each day I intentionally give myself over to God & ask that His will be done in me, for me & through me. That gives me a measure of peace.
