Xoxo, Belinda

Lydia, you are breaking my heart. PLEASE hang in there....suicide is not an answer, it does not solve the friends, coworkers, and relatives efforts to help you on this sensitive journey. I beg you to pray for God to help you move on, healthy and happy, and by all means go get some HELP today. Your mom is with you, even though it is only memories. Think of the good time, and stay close to people you trust. It is sad, I admit, that death is a reality, but when God calls us home, we need to go. Lydia you call me ASAP if you keep up with those destructive thoughts. Love Belinda 502-693-4494 I promise to listen and be supportive!

Lydia, How are things going for you. I bet the summer seemed long. I did better this summer, but I was a mess in the Spring. I ended going on an anti-depressant, and did a lot of counseling. I know, I was blaming everyone, and so angry and bitter. I have more peace, NOW> I need to get my sleep straightened out, because lack of sleep and grief, are not good for anyone. Please write a short note, when you can. Love, Belinda

Lydia, My mom passed on May 17 of this year in a car accident taking my little sister to school. She was my closest friend. I loved her so very much. She was only 55. I thought we had so much time together. This has changed my thinking of life now. I appreciate life so much more. I miss my Mom, but I now know that it's time to step up to the plate and listen to my heart. God is always their and he needs us here to do what we were born to do. I was never real religious, but I do think their is a reason why were here. This won't bring my Mom back but maybe I can become a better person out of this tragedy.

Lydia,try to focus on the resurrection hope where Daddy will live forever on this earth and never have to worry about dying again. God says: "He will actually swallow up death forever, and... will certainly wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8) But he also promises a bringing back to life those who have died, a time when we can enjoy life together forever. The Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live . . .. They will rise up.” And the Bible also says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29 The miracle of Lazarus' resurrection foreshadows only one of the many blessings we will enjoy under Christ's reign in the paradise earth promised in the Bible at Psalms 37:9-11 and John 5:28,29. As we await the outworking of all of God's promises, I hope that you will find comfort in knowing that others are thinking about you.

Lydia, It doesn't sound selfish for you to want to be with your dad. It sounds like you had a wonderful dad, you loved him dearly and you miss him. One day in God's time you will be with your father. When did your father pass away? My mom passed away on June 25 and I miss her so much. I've also prayed for her to come to me in a dream, but I know there are other ways my mom can come to me...in my thoughts, in memories. I found a book, "On Grief and Grieving" by Elisabeth Kubler Ross, that has helped me understand that the feelings I'm having are normal. There are 5 stages of grieving....denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I've gone through all of these several times since my mom passed away last month. One day I'm at acceptance and the next day depressed or angry, but I know these are normal feelings. Please take time to read the book. I think you'll find that it will help.

Hello everyone, just wanted to stop by and say hello. I hope everyone is holding up as best as possible. I can not sleep tonight. I sometimes just feel like a zombie, just going through the motions. Just wanted to stop by and tell you all that I am thinking and praying for you. Many hugs and kisses.

Hello everyone.... I am here in a slump that I am not able to get out of. Still so depressed!!! No one understands me.. I told two of my close friends on how I truly feel, and they both told me that I should go see a psychiatrist. Why do I need to go see one if I am in mourning? The psychiatrist will not know how I feel unless they have gone through it as well. God Bless everyone... TTYL

Just another day for me.... I celebrated Mothers day with mom yesterday, and glad I did. My poor husband is trying to get me out of bed so they can celebrate Mothers day with me, but don't want to do anything. I am still in bed and keep thinking I am tired and no longer want to live.... Why can't they just let me be????

Lydia, I wake myself up frequently talking in my sleep. I look around and realize I am talking to whoever, and usually get on up, or go back to sleep. I know you are so mixed with emotions, and I do believe your dad lives on through you, spirit, heart and dreams. God Bless, and I hope your husband doesn't mind you being frustrated in your dreams....You are strong, and you know what, I did have one heck of a pity party last night, but much better today...hugs Belinda

Lydia, I have been tardy for the group, I have been getting use to "My old KY Home"...since the 21st of April...I am stronger, and weaker, crazier, and paranoid, but one thing I thank God for each and every day, is this group...who do not really know anything about me, do not judge your life, and yet we all get along so nicely! Wouldn't life be grand, if friends, relatives, neighbors, etc...only understood....what did they expect from ME???
Stay in touch, and know I truly care....Blessings, Belinda

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I last wrote.... Still lost... I find myself feeling more and more depressed over daddy. I miss him so... Just wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone.... Stay strong!

Lydia, I have been selfish with my time, but You are so kind to care and share ! When you get a chance, let me know how your journey is going...and update me on the ages of your "kids". I still keep questionning my sanity, but I can't help but try to look forward, to when I make peace with myself and the loss of my mom. My children are all young men now, ages 22,27,and 29...and by the way I still yell, cry mope and recharge on a daily basis. Be good to your self, and by all means take time to keep up with this group, we are all on a journey that we never are prepared for.........the loss of a parent or loved one Belinda

Lydia,I felt that way for a long time until someone showed me from the bible that my mom was asleep in death and she was not suffering one day soon, God will actually swallow up death forever, and... will certainly wipe the tears from all faces." (Israel 25:8) God also promises to bring back to life those who have died, so we can enjoy life together forever.
