Hi Emily I am so sorry for your loss. I kind of hate to say that because it seems like a response form so many who don't know what we are going through. My son also had a tragic accident which he did not survive. I am sorry for all that we have lost. i am thankfull we had them for that period of time i sish i could go back in time where he was alive and live from that moment on and still have him. we all have these thoughts love to you carrie L
Emily, I also have a granddaughter that my son left behind. He never got to hold her but he got to name he. he passed on dec 28, she was born on Jan 16 and she makes me so happy like if he was there with me.. I love her so much.
You are so very blessed to have a part of your son with you in this precious little girl, Hope. My son did not have any children but we do have his dog, who he loved so much, Samson. How I wish I did have a grandchild from Mario, but that wasn't in God's plan.
Hope will give you a reason to go on.
Emily you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. There is another poster here, Angela M. who just lost her son, Jan 10, 2010 in a snowmobile accident also. She along with everyone on this forum will be in my prayers. If you ever need to talk, I'm here for you. God Bless, Lisa
Walking by faith doesn't mean your problems suddenly evaporate. Sometimes faith doesn't change your circumstances, it changes YOU, by giving you the tenacity to hang in there. Faith gives you the fortitude to endure these things. Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1 ... Keep the Faith. Praying for you.
My heart goes out to you. I also lost my 24 year old son, Dec 22, 2007 in a snowmobile accident. He was riding on a snowmobile trail, there was a gate next to the trail which was locked and not marked properly he didn't see it. He died instantly. I am so sorry for your loss. Hang onto your Faith Emily. Jesus is my strength, I could never do this on my own. Take it one day at a time. What helped me so much was a group called GriefShare. I now co-lead a GriefShare at my church. The website is www.griefshare.org type in your zipcode and it will bring up a group in your area.
This is so raw for you right now but when your ready please consider attending this support group. There is Hope in Jesus, Emily. Your son's face is in your future. Your pain, your grief, is so fresh, give yourself some time. Cry out to Jesus. Only He can give you the peace which surpasses all understanding.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will see your son again. Invite Him into your heart today, He will carry you, He will give you strength, He will give you Hope. You have a choice to become bitter or better. I miss my son, with everything I am but I chose to trust God, that He is in control and He see's the bigger picture. My Faith has carried me for two years and continues to grow stronger everyday. May God wrap His loving arms around you, comfort you, and draw you closer to Him.
God Bless, Lisa
Yes I did 4 years ago my 19 year old son,on his motorcycle going around the block to see his friend and a car pulled in front of him.. and I still feel the same empty..reading about others has brought me comfort and what they went through and are still going through helps..we must guide others and let them know they are feeling the way they are suppose to feel at this time..look back at older comments as you can relate and cry with others. I pray God will help you with this journey
Emily I am so sorry for your loss..You have a long way to go before you can get by..one second at a time, then one minute at a time , then take one hour at a time..evidently you can go one day at a time. everyone mourns differently..you are in charge of the time you need..
