Joel A. Vahey

Yesterday was Mother's Day and I cried for most of the day. You see, I buried my beloved husband the day before. We had been together for twenty-two years. He always bought me a mother's day card even though we did not have any children together. He was a very thoughtful and sincere person who would do anything for anybody especially his friends and neighbors. He will be greatly missed especially by me.

If I only knew

Dawn if I only knew all the pain your were suffering but trying to hide, I would not of wasted a minute to be by your side. Your tears were my tears and there were many. Now it is different, the tears are mine only. I think about you every day, and all I can do is take a moment to pray, that all this pain will someday just go away. Family members do not call , Its like nothing ever happened.

How sad it is to go from day to day trying to smile and be there for your family when inside feels… Continue

MOTHERs DAY

Mother's Day. I have early memories of being a kid. Of shopping for bathrobes with my dad, making cards for my mom of breakfasts in bed, of a normal, happy family but then my mom died when I was 11 about a month before Mother's Day. For years I hated it. In school we would make gifts and do projects for our mom for Mother's Day and I always felt awkward, embarrassed. I would make something for my grandmother, it wasn't the same, everyone else had their mom. I always thought that teacher's… Continue

How The Death of A Spouse Can Be The Worst Thing and The Best Thing That Happens to You

In a prior post (March 8), I talked about the dual nature of the world and how to reach neutrality. Following along with that vein of thought, I am now able to make the following statement:



My late husband’s death was both the worst thing and the best thing that ever happened to me.



I realize that for many of you who are just at the beginning of your grief journey, it may be difficult to believe or understand that statement. It is also necessary for you to know from… Continue

05.06.10 = 9 months of missing him :'[

On a warm summer eve exactly nine months ago tonight, our husband and father was rushed to the hospital after falling coming into the house. NEVER in a million years did I dream that we would be told he didn't make it and I would be left to raise our three beautiful and amazing daughters ALONE...I would be truly lost without them, we have our ups and our downs and today started out rough. I found this poem in one of the many books on grief that I have read and so the girls and I thought I… Continue

10 1/2 Weeks

10 1/2 weeks is how long you've been gone, honey. I never thought I could make it even this far along without you. I had gotten so used to having you with me and depending on your intelligence, wisdom, and wit that I didn't know that I could survive at all without you. And yes, I am surviving. By no definition am I thriving - but I'm surviving.



I miss you more today than so many weeks ago. And yes, just as others have told me, going on without you has just gotten harder in so many… Continue

Assigning Meaning To Tragedy

As human beings we struggle with the notion of meaning. Perhaps one of the best discussions of this issue comes from Victor Frankl's, "Man's Search for Meaning." Frankl discusses his own experience as a survivor of Nazi concentration camps and how he worked to find some kind of meaning from the events he lived through. Based upon Fankl's philosophy, it seems that meaning is something we assign with our mind rather than something inherent in the event itself. If so, then we are faced with the… Continue

Walking in Grief

I come from the GREAT state of Texas. The long horn state where the highways and flatland never seem to end. One of the television commercials that I will have etched on my brain forever goes like this. How long has it been since you have had a bowl of wolf brand chili? Well, neighbor that is entirely too long. Wolf brand chili is one of those things that you can get in Texas that is hard to find anywhere else. My wife and I miss several things about Texas. The chili, authentic Mexican cooking… Continue

A Reflection in Time

The journey started June 3rd the year 2000. What seemed to be a normal day in the life of a ten yr old girl turned into an event that would alter the course of time for both Jessica and her family. This is a story that will be a reflection in time. The purpose of this reflection will be to help me to piece together some of the events as well as to help me to be responsible in passing along whatever it is that I am to be passing along as I walk down this path.



I am not sure why our… Continue

What not to wear to a funeral

We live in a world where anything goes. And yet I’m still surprised at some of the things people wear; jeans and sweatshirts to church, shorts at a fine restaurant on a Saturday night, and flip flops for all occasions. But when it comes to funerals, most of us sense that there are some rules of protocol that should be followed.



A friend recently shared that she attended a funeral and was surprised that a teenage family member wore casual clothing and flip flops. I was…
