January%202015.jpg I took this photo in January 2015 just two short months after Mark's death, I had traveled home to Jacksonville, Florida and drove out to the Beach with our dog Bella. A "Nor-Easter" was blowing cold wind in and there were maybe 3 other brave souls…


All The People in My Life

Posted on September 14, 2017 at 6:30am 0 Comments

I have created a blog page on Face Book @Stephen.goodwin264.  

It is a collection of short stories about all the people in my life and how their influence have helped to make me the person I am today.  So far I have completed 3 short stories and will continue to add new ones.  My goal is to literally include everyone I have journeyed with in this life and the ones I have yet to meet.  Hope you visit my page and I look forward to your feed…

Hi Steve;

Regarding the two url (links) you posted: one is directly into a discussion within, the other is to the main page of Steve Cain's group.

Check the top of the "Comment Wall" (main page), and you will see a list of "Discussion Forums", one of them is the first link you posted (Grief so great it hurts).  To get back to the main page from within that discussion, click the "back to Bereaved Spouses discussions" then click "back to Bereaved Spouses".

Steve ...  What wonderful pictures and such treasured memories.  You know me and dogs and the dog on your slide show won my heart.  Sweet face!  I hope to add more pictures to my Home Page as well.

Thank you big brother for sharing your most personal pictures.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for the friendship. Do you live in Dallas or NJ?
I live in Richardson.

It's been a tough few years for me, losing my partner suddenly and both of my parents over a few years. I even lost my dog...When it rains it pours. My live has changed in so many ways...I found this site and home to find out more about the grieving process. My family was not close, so suddenly finding fillings of loss has been devastating . It's a rather long story. Hope you are having a great weekend

T.C. Goodwin, we share the same last name. Just occurred to me that I never mentioned that before.

For those who believe:

I wish I could tell you of all that God has planned

But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand

But one this is for certain though my life on earth is o’re

I am closer to you now than I was ever before

And to my very many friends trust God knows what is best

I’m still not far away from you, I’m just beyond the crest

There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb

But together we can do it taking one day at a time

It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too

That as you give unto the world so the world will give to you

If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain

Then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain

And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile

Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile

So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low

Just lend a hand to pick him/her up as on your way you go.

When you are walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind,

I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind

And when you feel the gentle breeze or the wind upon your face

That’s me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace

And when it’s time for you to go from that body to be free

Remember you’re not going you are coming here to me.

I will always love you.

Steve, I am going to be one of those that will tell you to take your time.  I strongly suggest no to make any life altering changes within the first year.  Your post hit home for me.  Before my husband passed I retired from a job which I loved and was so respected but I did it with no regrets to take care of him.  After he passed away I confined myself to the sofa or bed and it it were not for my dogs I might still be there.  

I have no clue what God has in store for me or why am I here and he is not.  I guess why is an unanswered question we will need to figure out in time.   I try my hardest to stay positive and so when I am down I need to count my blessings and not my heart aches and that keeps me going.  

Grieving such as ours is a baby step process and unless someone has lost their soulmate, best friend, spouse all rolled into one they will never understand the pain we are in.  They will never understand the pain lingers and never truly goes away!  Take one day at a time Steve and remember to count your blessings and take life slow for now.  Sending big hugs your way.  Hugs, Jane P.

Helpful Tips:.

Keep busy and continue your routine of work and activity.  Many expressed the great help they received from prayer.

Let your grief manifest itself; don’t try to hold it in. The sooner you grieve and weep, the sooner you will pass the period of acute grief.

Don’t isolate yourself; mix with people and allow them to mix with you. If it helps you, talk freely about your lost loved one.

As soon as possible, take an interest in other people and their problems. Try to help others, and you will help yourself."
