Sheryl,

Hi- it's been a long time. I hope things are improving for you and yours. I imagine you, like me have been able to ween yourself away from this wonderful support group towards whatever it is that is occupying your time these days. I come here every rare once in a while & check on everyone. I would love to hear from you. You have been an inspiration to me. I am  wondering about your health as well as your granddaughter. Prayers & best wishes for you & yours.

Hugs,

Christy

Sheryl,  I'm terrible about posting although l do get on and read quite often.  A few days ago a post came back on from months back.  I had mentioned how l would cocoon myself in a blanket while listening to Breathe On Me. You said you were going to try to find it.  Did you?  I hope you did it is a truly comforting, it has a part that says take me to your Sanctuary, sometimes I feel like I get there.  Hope you are having more good days with happy memories.  HUGS

Thank you Sheryl for your prayers & encouragement. I am praying for you & yours also. Sorry to hear about the skin cancer- it sounds scarey but you are doing all you can do. Try not to let it worry you.  I think sometimes that fear kills us quicker than any sickness. "Fear ye not" I remind myself of that frequently. God commands us not to be afraid. He is pretty straight forward about that one. Dealing with the loss of our husbands seems to be full of important lessons like this. Obedience, trust,... these are not easy or fun but they are essential to our faith. I have been having difficulties, but I have also had lots of blessings to counter balance them. I just want him back so bad I can't stand it! Sometimes it feels as if it just happened & it has been almost 1 year. I feel so lost at times. So many little things that really bother me to the point of wanting to snap. There is a man at work who aggravates me daily w/ comments about wanting to get me drunk or give me drugs or take me on a trip! I really have a hard time treating it like a casual joke when I feel he is constantly "hitting" on me. I can't stand this guy! My boss is a compete--- & I wonder how I will manage to stay here another year to receive my retirement (if that's even what it is- I will be fully"vested" after August 5, 2012). Sheryl, I need your prayers. Thank you so much for remembering me. I will be fine. It's just tough right now. I wish you well~ HUGS~

Hello Sheryl, thank you for the note. Life has been busy. At times, far too busy. Yes, grief still takes a portion of most days no matter how busy or how much I try to get around it. I took vacation from my job last week. I enjoyed it, although I got in the way of myself & had very little time actually on the beach. I did see my nephew play ball 2 nights which was great. He plays for the Wilmington Sharks. They went 11 innings the first night, so it was extremely close, but they lost. The next night was close but they won. He is a pitcher. Lots of fun. I also met a friend from high school that lives there & haven't seen her in about 20-25 years! That was fun too. I had lots of class work that took up a majority of my time that was a real aggravation. I also was very busy working on Larry's nonprofit's website. Larry's high school reunion was last night & I was trying desperately to have it ready by then. I only had 1 week's notice, but thought it would be a rare fund raising opportunity. I still have things to do to have it 100% but it's up. If you have time, I'd love you to visit & see what you think. It's address is:

www.larrydbradleyfoundation.org

It has been a hard week & really, a hard month. Today has been 10 months since Larry's death. I would do anything to have him back. It's not easy to look forward when things behind were so wonderful.

I hope you & yours are getting along better. I keep you in my prayers.

Thank you again for being in touch. 

Hugs,

Christy

Sheryl I understand how you must feel. At times like these it's important to submit it all to God, asking in prayer that His will shall be done with Michaela. In that way we can obtain peace regardless of the outcome. She will either be healed & continue to share herself with all of you here for a time, or she will be welcomed home by Grandpa Dave & the heavenly hosts. One day we will all unite "on that glorious shore" and live the everlasting life God has prepared for us. I believe.

Hey Sheryl, thanks for your message. I understand about father's day and how hard that will be. Know that I will be thinking of you and sending you good thoughts to try and help you through. Nothing else I can say would be anything more than stuff we have hashed out many times on this site. Just know that there are many people here who care about you.

Sheryl, as soon as I woke this morning you and your granddaughter and family were on my heart and I said a prayer for you. I wondered how she was. Now I see your messg. & can only pray that by his stripes she is healed and that God's will be done. My heart breaks for you & yours over this precious child. I wish there were more I could do.

Sheryl, thank you, I am fine. I was bit by a rattlesnake. I spent 3 days in the hospital, but all is well. Upon release, the "snake expert" said it was evidence of "divine intervention." I found out later, that 5 days before I was bit, a man was bit & died from the same type of rattlesnake bite in a nearby town. I think it helps me understand better that none of us will go before our time. That hurts, but I am realizing that this is not my "game" and I must be willing to submit to the one in charge, like it or not. Each day I intentionally give myself over to God & ask that His will be done in me, for me & through me. That gives me a measure of peace.

Dear Sheryl,

I just said a prayer over you, your granddaughter, your son & extended family & all those caring for her. I just read your post to Sherlyn. My heart aches over this; I am so sorry this child is continuiing to face such tremendous hardship. It's unbelievable. I will keep you, all of you, in my prayers.

God's will for each of us~ Christy

Roller coaster, another great description. No matter how yoy label it, the pain is the same.

Yes I was referring to Lake Michigan and yes it was hard being up there without the love of my life. It was also good as it was peaceful and gave me time to decompress from putting the memorial together. Since I plan on being in Chicago either once a year or every other year (and always try to work a trip to Michigan into the overall trip) maybe my step-mother-in-law (who is also a widow) and I can meet you for coffee or something. Would that be OK with you? We can all sit and cry in our beverages as we remember the lovely people we miss.

 

As far as that that message asking me to contact them I believe it is a lot more sinister than just spam. I believe this is a ghoul trying to prey on grieving people to take advantage of them. I will certainly report it.

I was in your neck of the woods recently. My inlaws have a house on firelane 14 overlooking the lake. We went to Sherman's for ice cream and Columa (sp?) for a movie. I  always like to go there because it is so peaceful and calm. My Rose liked it too. It was good to go there but hard to be there with out her. My step-mother-in-law still likesto go up there even though my father-in-law passed away in 08. They had it built together.

Thank you for your kind words. My wife passed away on September 26th 2010 after surviving being on life support for a week in June. I know what you mean when you say you feel like you lost half of you as that is how I feel. I really like the picture of the two of you as you look so happy as I know you were. Life feels surreal now. My wife was the same age as her mother when her mother died. She had congestive heart failure and a litany of other medical problems too long to list here. She was definitely the best part of me. Feel free to write if you wish to talk and thanks again.

Thank you Sheryl, you are in my prayers also.  It was bittersweet, but I think it helped me to go.  I am lucky I dont have to pass the site everyday , my heart goes out to you. His accident site is about 90 miles away from home. Hugs to you.

Sheryl, you & yours are in my prayers. Prayers of healing and strength to their bodies and peace to your hearts & minds. You are a lovely lady of faith & you are so encouraging to us here at Legacy. I am glad I can give to you, some of what you give to me.

Hugs~ Christy

Thank you Sheryl for the kind words. There is scripture that says for us to bless others as we are blessed, another similar regarding God comforting us, and yet another that says when we pray for others it comes back to bless us. I know these things are true. I don't say I am "reading my bible" now I am "studying my bible." I believe the answers to my questions are found there to the extent of which I am ready to recieve. I guess I'm saying it doesn't reveal everything I desire to know (like why did this happen now), but it reveals what I need to know.

It's not an easy life is it? Writing/Journaling has always been therapeutic for me, where for many, talking to others helps. Talking doesn't work for me- I open my mouth & fall to pieces & can't get a word out! 

HUGS, Prayers & best wishes for you & yours~ Christy

Sheryl,

I just read your post here from 3/27. Tears & heartbreak. I feel for you so strongly because I understand how amazingly wonderful it is to have someone love & adore you & make you feel 100% confident & comfortable just being yourself. Then for them to be taken so suddenly, unexpectedly is beyond comprehension. It seems that when they left they took our joy, peace, hope, security... with them. At least that's how I feel & I only had Larry a short while compared to your basically life-long relationship with Dave. Heaven knows your family has more than its share of sorrow & pain, but I believe if you continue to keep your focus on God that you & yours will survive & be blessed. Not only that, but you are & will be a blessing to others. I am praying for you & yours~ Christy
