Paula, my dad is all alone in South Africa. My mom and him were married 33 years - I am worried, as he told me today - he is so lonely. I am in the USofA in Victorville, CA. It's amazing how people who should be there for him this december are pushing off on their own vacations, without considering him being alone! I think it is very selfish. Jen I am so sorry that you are also lonely during the holidays - holidays do more damage than anything else sometimes.
Thanks Paula, have a look at my page, some good words about Bernie, and his flowers. I was hoping he would bury me one day, but he would not have survived what I have had to go through. So, the Lord knows best. We shall all meet again one day, and for much longer, eternity! Best wishes.
My 16 year old Lady and her 6 y.o. son Lucky keep me on a tight rein. If I go for a nap I have to check that there is enough time before their next feed, otherwise ....... I will be dragged out to do the meal! If their is an empty water bowl she bangs it like the end of the world! No messing! But she sits at my feet all day and evening. And he is just as affectionate.
Paula, I know how you feel, as I am alone with my son's dogs now that he has gone. My daughters are on the east coast, and 'friends' are very wary in case you start talking about your lost relative. He, 45 and healthy (we thought!) got sick in March 2011 and died in September 2011. Enormous shock. People don't go for new ideas around here, just hold the same old conversations over and over again. I wish you strength and peace. You already have the love. David.
Paula, I just read that you have lost your Mom, Dad, and Brother, and I am deeply saddened about your losses. So much for a person to bear. I too have lost my only brother--in 1979--, my mother--in October 2011--and my father, just in May 2012. We are kind of in the same boat, but I do have some extended family members left, and I have a wonderful husband and also stepkids that I love....Do you have anyone to live with? Much hugs, cheer, concern----please write back. I embrace you in prayer and kind thoughts.
