"To MSLV4 - I loved being reminded that my husband's energy is all around me. I miss him so horribly right now. I will continue to talk to him and hold on to the promise of someday being together again! Thanks...."
"Gigi, I really appreciated the perspective you presented. I feel like the grief blocks my ability to see things differently than what is stuck in my brain right now. Your words have encouraged me and reminded me that God's promise of eternal…"
"I read this today:
Our loving Father in Heaven does not want us to be in pain. There is no pain in Heaven. There is no loss in Heaven. Only joy. But we live in a painful, broken and fallen world.
God I believe You are still good…"
That was beautiful. Thank you for that. Today has been a hard day and I know your words were meant for Rere but they have given me strength too. When I'm strong and handling this new normal better, I can see clearly.…"
"Rere -- I was just reading about good and evil -- without evil in the world, we wouldn't know good. Without sadness, we wouldn't know happiness. I hope that makes sense. Also, where was God when you're husband died such a traumatic…"
You have lifted my spirit with your beautiful and encouraging words. I want so badly to believe that my husband can hear me and is still there to comfort me. You have reminded me that I have Jesus to walk with me and am not alone and can…"
" I'm so sorry Rere,
I'm not sure easy will ever come but I think manageable will. Friends of mine who have lost their husbands unexpectedly and due to illness tell me this is how it is. I just miss my husband as well…"
We all get it, wondering when this will end? The loneliness and the sadness. I don't think the kids understand fully the loss of a life partner. But we only understand what directly effects us - that maybe why Carol the kids…"
"I am so sorry Rere, I lost my husband just before you did on March 31st. I felt like God had abandoned us for the first couple of days, then gradually, as I was ready, God was there, waiting for me to see he was there all the time.…"
"Yes, I would give the same advice as "barbee" Waiting is NOT a bad thing at all. I have my husband's ashes on a shelf in our family room. I find comfort that a part of him is close even though I know his soul, who he is,…"
"I lost my husband in April to COVID and cannot cope witht he trauma of how it happened. I too am trying to keep my faith in God but it seems almost impossible right now., How can a merciful, kind God take someone we love in such a brutal way? It has…"
"Gigi, a suggestion for you to think about. You mention you aren't sure what to do with your husband's ashes. Waiting is not a bad thing. Take your time.
I kept my first husband's ashes and when I met the man who would become husband…"
"My mother died one month ago today. My dad called 911 because she was acting strangely - turned out she had a brain bleed. This was on a Monday morning. The hospital would not allow my dad in to see her. Tues afternoon they allowed him in, as she…"
"Congratulations on the graduation, it's so bittersweet in so many ways. The things we are supposed to be happy about have a cloud of sadness over them. Just from not being able to celebrate normally but also having that very important…"
"Yes, it was really difficult to understand why we couldn't be with our husband/father. We were all in the same house and all had this virus--who was being protected?
This will be a tough weekend (Father's Day) for my five kids. My…"
