Sunday Ponderings: Stalled!

Hello to all my dear friends...

I know that of late this is the only day in a week I post something...but today I choose to remain silent...today I remain silent because I wouldn't be able to ask or tell you anything...it's with a heavy heart I sit down and write this; someone I held in high regard, respected and admired is no more...

The only question I can ask you right now is how to cope with the loss of a dear one...because I don't know how. I have never been able to face and accept the reality called death and stands helpless when death claimed yet another one of my dear ones.

I will be back when I recover from my grieving...

Signing off

  2. i totally understand. my sister passed away in 2001; there probably isn't a week that goes by where she's not thought of. i can say that the pain of losing someone suddenly doesn't ever go totally away, but it does become manageable over time. as a Christian, i am assured that when my days on earth are over, i will be reunited with her and other family members, and friends, who have passed before me. (of course, this is assuming that those who have passed before me were also Christians who believed that Jesus was the Son of God.)

  3. There is no simple answer; something like this happens and we wonder how the sun can come up and everybody go about their business when our hearts are breaking. All I can tell you is that you are not alone, and that eventually the pain will become one more thread woven through the tapestry of your life, making you who you are. I wish you peace.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine the pain you are going through. I've lost people in my life and it hurt, but after awhile the pain lessened and I was left with all my good memories of them, which still gives me comfort. Take care.

  6. Please accept my sincere condolences at this very sad time, and know that you are very much in my thoughts. It's horrible when something like this happens. I've lost my mum and dad and, in the last few years, three really close friends. One I used to go on holiday with, and she went so quickly. It hurts and nothing I can say will take that away. Try to hang on to the good memories if you can, Cat. Sending you a big hug.

  12. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Grief is different for everyone.... I try to think of the good times, their life, and how they played a valuable part in mine. Overall, it reminds me about how thankful I am to be here, and to enjoy every moment.

  13. There are so may platitudes I could quote, but, they are so trite. All I can say is that we are all in this together. We have all lost, grieved and gone on carrying only the good memories.

    I don't know your religious status, but, I am praying for you.....kt
