Nina, here is the poem (I had to look on our Bereaved Spouses/Facebook page, as I am at work & didn't have it on this computer.---If you belong to Facebook/easy to join if not/ck out Bereaved Spouses page) I too love these type poems, and when I find them I copy & paste onto a Word document & save. Short ones, you can put a bunch on one page:
I was stilling here in Heaven & having a wonderful day. I started thinking about you & all the things I didn't get a chance to say. I don't want you to worry about me & please don't shed any tears,Everything I had on Earth, I have in Heaven too! My first day here, my body became brand new, It is really pretty here and I love my new home. Although your heart is broken, because my body is gone; My love will always be there, as you go along the way. Just take a peek inside your heart; there is where I'll stay. Know that I love my family & all my friends too. My thoughts will be with each of you your whole life through.
Nina, I am so sorry for the loss of your precious husband. I lost my husband on just over 8 weeks ago and I haven't stopped crying since. I talk to him ALL the time. I found a recording on the computer of him today and cried and thought he was home. I guess together we will help each other. Glad you are here too. Holidays are horrible. We would have been married day after Christmas 12 years. I just have to stay in the moment. HUGS. Help Us Grow Strong. Ellen~
Just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you.
I have been looking for a job since I got laid off but
no bites. I think if I could find one, it would help me
a lot with my lonliness.
Hope you are doing better and that you were able to
sell your property.
Hope you are having a better day than I am.
I keep crying......I hate being alone, especially
Just wanted you to know I think of you because
I know you are going thru the same feelings.
Thanks for listening to me "vent"
I dont know why when I write my msgs to you, I get cut short so I have to start over....sorry about that.
Anyhow I also went to my doctor yesterday for a physical and she wants me to try prozaac for a short period of time. Says it will get me the energy I need to stop hanging around . Im not sure I want to take that so I havent filled the prescription yet.
I am DREADING the upcoming holidays ! Dont know how I will get thru all of them.
Im glad you have found some comfort in that church. Hope you continue to go whenever you can. I know its hard with work scheduled.
I will keep you in my prayers still and you try to take care.
Hugs, (((())))) Arlene
They all cried. So I didnt feel like I was the only one going crazy with grief. Only people like us who are actually going thru this on their own, with no direct household help, can understand. I havent done a darn thing in my house since he died in June. I just sit and watach tv most of the time. We have a place in Maine for the summers and I only went up like 4 day trips. Just could not do it.
I have to learn how to do everything now, he did it all because I worked all the time (my husband was older than I) But then I got laid off last October.
I have been trying to find a job but no bites. You are fortunate you have one and can get out of the house for even that short period of time. I know it must be hard to face people, but im sure you get strength from it too.
It was nice to heaer from you.
Likewise, nobody else emails me from this site. Actually I find
it a bit confusing to maneuver around with. Everything seems
like its old stuff...
Last night I went to my first bereavement group that I recently joined. There were 10 of us. 7 had husbands pass on who were
sick for a long time, 1 other was a suicide (I give her credit to admit that. Lots of people would not and be afraid others would stereo type her)
and then 1 other like me, had a sudden death I was the only one with recent death the others were from 7 years ago, 3 years ago and within the last year.
