Sweet Pea

Sweet pea,

I just walked in the door. Dad, Reesie and Cayden were on the couch. I said "hi", I heard nothing. No one even responded. NOTHING. All I could think on my way up the front stairs is that there would be no little feet running at me squealing "mama's home, mama's home, I missed you so much mama", no little arms wrapping around my legs in a hug of pure love, no one scrambling to get picked up to tell me that "I love you so much mama, so much". No one that would so excitedly… Continue

I miss my dad today

Had a tough day. The guy i really liked for 2 years is going out with someone else. He was a friend who had been there for me when my dad passed away 2 months ago.

I was in love with him even before dad's illness was diagnosed. My friend knew about my feelings and we had kissed once.

And i find out from someone that he has been dating a girl for the past one year and he never told me. I am hurt and upset and i miss my father.

Every little hurt seems to go back to my father.… Continue

May is the New December

Have you noticed? May is the new December!

With the school year winding up, weddings around the corner and days celebrating everything from mothers to teachers (May 4), kites (May 12) and tulips (May 13), this spring month is rivaling the holiday madness that gears up at Thanksgiving. Like that frenzied four-week onslaught, much of May’s madness hovers around shopping: for moms, for teachers, for grads, brides and year-end parties, performances and picnics.

When a baby dies

At a recent meeting, a business associate shared some dreadful news; a mutual acquaintance gave birth a few months ago and the baby died at seven weeks.

There is something profoundly tragic when a baby dies. The news is as shocking as it is rare; out of over 4 million births in the United States in 2006, 28,500 babies died before they were a year old.

You may have experience dealing with the death of adults and maybe children. But infant death is different and because of…

So terribly sad

I lost my husband on4/30 this year.he had a lot of health issues but he was assaulted and died from those injuries. He went to his appointment at 10am in the morning and I didn't know anything that happened until I got home from work at6:30pm. He dropped me off that morning and I never imagined that I would never be able to talk to him again. I just don't know how I am going to get through this

Leaving the Site

I think this site has reached the point where it's doing more harm than good for me. Up until today it has been helpful in various ways to read the posts of others, and see how others are coping. Maybe occasionally contribute something helpful.

Today I realized that it's possible for me to actually get angry when reading and replying to posts here, which means that it's time to leave. With all the cr*p that's going on in my life, in dealing with Dan's loss, I don't need to read posts… Continue

i have changed, i miss my father.

So i am sitting in office. Not much work today and i feel so lost in my life it is not funny. My father passed away 2 months ago and i was his primary caretaker for one year. I am a 23-year-old woman.

I stare blankly at this screen wondering where i am going in my life. My father was my rock in a way. Now i feel adrift.

I am doing fine though. not as bad one would imagine. But still there is a sadness sitting inside of me that refuses to leave.

I miss my father. I cannot believe… Continue

Remembering You

Today it is 20 weeks! Why did you go? Why?

Your time on earth seemed all too brief

because I wanted you in my life forever.

And although I really miss you,

in my heart I know that you are at peace.

Still, countless times throughout the day

I find myself remembering you.

Although I cannot see or hear you,

I know that you are with me.

I'll feel you in the warmth of the summer sun.

I'll see you in the brilliance of autumn… Continue

Does Time Heal All Wounds?

Occasionally, I am asked by students of the helping professions really compelling questions. Recently, a whole set of questions came across through the Center’s website. After responding, I decided to post my answers. What follows are the questions a student asked me along with my answers to help her complete an assignment.

1. What do you think about the phrase, “Time heals all wounds.”

Time in itself—unlucky for us—does not heal all wounds. I think it was Lilly Tomlin who said,… Continue

My son had so many mixed emotions he himself having severe asthma knows the fear you live everyday,and how all the meds make you feel mind body and soul. the parents were grateful and sent him a picture, looking at… Continue

God Heals

Remember when you heard the words -

and your mind went blank - you were in another world

God heals

Remember in your darkest hours -

when all that surrounds you is pain and sorrow

God heals

Remember friends' prayers - your family's encouragement

- glimmers of hope from everyday angels

God heals can hear Him now -

always there - yet never this close

God heals

It's just another day -

yet everything has changed - and you… Continue
