Entering the New Year

I want to share a dream I had a couple of night ago.....  It's a beautiful warm sunny day, and we were all in a big open space, like a big, lush, green, field and there’s a big gate, (something like a farm gate), and everyone is walking through this gate together, laughing, chatting, some even running. I am with my boys,…

greivng and special occasions

On my Birthday,  January 18, 2008 I lost my husband to A.L.S.  A great husband, father, son and friend.  And if that wasn't hard enough 3 days later on the day he was layed out at the funeral home, walking in to the funeral home my Mom fell to the floor and had a massive heart attack and died.  I cannot express the horror that myself and my family felt that day and still feel.  I have managed somhow to go on with my life and have been in a relationship for 2 years.  The grief still comes and… Continue

Understanding

 I have read a number of postings and replys as I find time to come here and try to find some type of closure, some kind of understanding, or some part of reason for just me. I'm not trying to be selfish, just trying to find closure. A loss, is a loss, is a loss, and each of us react as each of us are unique. Still, I'm finding out that I'm not alone, BUT unique, takes me one step further towards a healing understanding. I am human, and I am a male, out numbered, yet equal in life's loss. I… Continue

Waiting for Pete

Today was really hard. We (my son and I) visited the cemetery.  We cleaned Pete's plaque and laid fresh flowers. And the whole time, it was like I was waiting for him to just walk up to me. Like we'd arranged to meet there or something. I really couldn't comprehend that he wasn't going to turn up. Not there, not anywhere. A flood of emotion overtook me and I stood there crying as reality set in.  This can't be right, we were… Continue

Wow, babe... What a great weekend!! I had the best time spending Christmas with your moms and family, and even got to meet Kevin and his wife. They were so great, wish you could have been there, but I understand you were tied up with higher matters. I wanted to say thank you, for my Christmas wish. When I walked out to my car and it immediatly started snowing on me... WOW, I guess you did love me unconditionally. It meant sooo much to me, and even though you couldn't be with us, I swear I could… Continue

I feel that I have found a sounding board. I'm struggling every minute of every day over the loss of the man I gave my heart and soul to. I am so lucky to have had the time we did have together. I feel cheated and completely heart broke over Joe's sudden death. I torture myself over the if only's and why has this happened. I am still in a state of disbelief that this man who was my best friend, my life partner could possibly be gone. Joe died while…

Merry Christmas...here's your black eye,....

I hate anyone losing someone they love.  I can't read a newspaper article about a death without crying, can't watch a show with loss in it or I bust into tears, I get annoyed when people post on Facebook all those "cutsie" poems on losing someone.  Yes, that's anger in my tone, and I grieve for everyone now. 

Where does this horror ever end? 

For Christmas I only asked for a pair of "moccason?" house shoes, but instead got my eye  blacked, a busted lip, and several knots on my head. … Continue

OH GOD...how I miss you and cry so much.You and I complimented each other on the journey in so many ways, now I feel nothing but EMPTINESS,LONELINESS and SADNESS. My soul is tired. We had…

I'll never understand it

Though my faith has given me strength since Travis has passed, it has also given rise to many questions.  Questions that will never be answered, not on this earth, anyway.  Why did they take our children so young?  Travis had the world to look forward to.  All of our children did.  And I wonder why God would let me live, and take my son.  I think its a question we all struggle with.  It just hurts so much some times.  I feel guilty just being alive. God help us all.

To Travis

I remember your eyes

So light and gray

Filled with light 

On Christmas Day.

 

The look of awe

You gave our tree

We shared that 

Special Christmas glee

 

I feel your spirit

Close to me

I feel your smile

Wash over me

 

I wish for you

This Christmas tide

The love of God

And with him abide.
