I am still here....

Please continue to keep me and my siblings and family on your prayer list... we are all having such a rough time..  We miss mom so much.. and it is really hard to imagine her physical presence not here.

I know where she is... I know she is so much happier than she has been in her entire life...  but I still miss her.  I am having a hard time talking to anyone .. so I have been just staying home.

I had a coffee event this weekend that we promised we would do and I did the first day and could not hardly make it through it.  Robert did today and I stayed in bed most of the day.

Please hang in there... I know that I will return to my old self... I am just struggling right now.. 

I wanted to thank so many people but I don't want to do it on this post.. I want it to be when my mind is clear.  I truly have been blessed with the most wonderful people in my life,  I thank you for that.

Love ..

  3. Ooh I'm so sorry about loosing your mom. I lost my daddy a few years back and can remember how hard the pain is at first. Please remember that time has a way of healing the heart. I know everyone says that, but it really is true! : )

  4. Joy-
    I happened to see your comment on someone's blog (EEKS I forgot who I'm trying to catch up on all my blog visits) so this is my first visit to your blog.

    I'm sorry to hear about your mom. It does hurt my friend. We lost our dad a week ago Friday. I still cannot believe he isn't here. He always bounced back and this time...

    You are right they are not suffering no more, they are in a better place etc... but it doesn't take away the pain only the love, time and memories will heal the heart.
