Healing

Posted on July 14, 2019 at 3:20pm 0 Comments

Soon be 6 months.  This site gives me a place to unload with people I don't know.  It has been healing for me. 

In just 3 weeks, 2 neighbors have died.  Lat night it was a teen in an auto accident.  I will be here for his mom.  I will be saying those soothing comments I have read on this site.  I will help as I feel lead to do, but won't attend the funeral.  I think it will set me back.  Pray for my strength as I comfort someone who has gone through a horrible loss.

My journey to find that normal

My husband enjoyed a good laugh. I was thinking how much I missed his happy, blue eyes. Sometimes when I talk to him at night, I hold a teddy bear he had as a young truck driver, but Jingles has no eyes. Lo and behold, on an errand, I found a bag of google eyes!!!! I colored them blue, and glued them on the teddy bear. Big eyes, big bright movable eyes. I can not help but to laugh out loud when I come into the bed room. The bear represents him. Just like him, it made me laugh. Have a good…

Here I am again reflecting. Thank God I have a full life, but yet, I don't feel complete. A huge part of me left 5 months ago. Although I continue some of the things we did, those moments are bittersweet. I have him in my thoughts, but long for his physical presence.

As I let go of some of the pain, I try to make room for others who were not as blessed as I to have had a partner that enjoyed going out and doing simple, and not expensive things. This week, I heard a woman say she had…

Ain't no mountain I can't climb. The evenings and early mornings I enjoy the birds, especially the ones who like to do a nightly choral for me at my reflection, prayer time. Caught myself singing a lot yesterday. My soul doth magnify the Lord.

I hope our site brings you solace Frances. Frances was my Grandmother's name, a very loved woman.

You're Welcome Frances.  It had to be a shock to experience your husbands demise.  Frances, I understand what you're saying about losing someone you love being tough. I lost my first husband many years ago when I divorced him. In fact I learned a couple years ago that he passed just 5 weeks after our son. Unfortunately, I didn't go back to my job that was good; instead got a job closer to where I lived. My son Joe was 2 years old and I put him in a nursery. It was at the new job that I met my present husband Bill. He adopted Joe and he wanted to do that well before we got married. Long story I won't go into. 

You have experienced a loss of a beloved partner twice and with you coming on Legacy 3 months after your second husband's loss that in itself just shows you how strong you really are. We can do things we may never have thought possible. The reason is because woman by nature are surviors. We have hope and love for life and others in our life. You need to just take one step at a time and do your best then if you believe in God he will do the rest! Always believe in yourself as I feel you have done by taking your very first step here in a very short amount of time. I'm glad that you responded to my post because now you have gotten more comfortable. 

There is a group that you can join on Legacy for 'Loss of a Spouse' however, you can always post on the latest conversation if you want to do that. People do that from other groups here. At one time the group I'm in was very active now there is David, Melinda and some others that come on infrequently as compared to previous years. If you want to talk to me again just click on my name and I'll respond. I like to type and communicate with people. Look forward to talking with you real soon and I'll respond when I check out Legacy. Take good care of yourself because you are important. Believe in yourself by having faith and always have hope for each day.

Bye bye for now.

Hi Frances,

My name is Barbara Rieger and I lost my only child my favorite son Joe. I am a member of 'Loss of a Child.' It was on April 5, 2010 nine years ago that 2 policemen came to my front door at 8am and asked to come in. I stood there looking at them and said "This is not good." When my husband came to the family room the police asked us to sit down. And then told us that our son passed. It was a shock.  Frances, you wrote that you feel lost and I'm wondering who it is in your life that you love and feel the absence of the one person that is causing you to feel lost? I will respond to you when I have a chance either Tuesday or Wednesday. Looking forward to having a conversation with you on your comment wall. Bye for now.

Barbara

Melinda Guinn lost a 30-year old daughter, and is always willing to chat.

Hi Frances, there are a few ways to chat on this site. Some work better than others. Like I think you will rarely get anyone replying on the 'Main Room'!

I lost my 45-year old son in 2011. Who did you lose? For sure there will be someone closer to your loss. Persevere and you shall find!

I wish you strength, courage and peace.

David, Bernie's dad.
