I was just talking to my mom and she heard two women say that in the bible it says that there are no pairing up and that we all love each other. That is great but they say we don't recognize each…Continue

Hi Jill. Just wanted to stop by and say hi and have a good day. Don't be so hard on yourself. We all need a break from time to time. I know each day is difficult, today being an especially difficult one for me as well. Think happy thoughts and know our guys are looking down at us and sending us love.

I always thought of heaven as the childish "up in the sky" way. Then in 2002, my Mom had an aneurism and we were told she would have severe brain damage. Well, she forgot that she was an alcoholic, a heavy smoker... And a pretty belligerent human being. We were abused by her as teens and our relationship was virtually non existent. But her illness as severe as it was; was looked upon as a blessing from heaven/angels. She apologized sincerely for her drinking and negative lifestyle; for hurting us all. She forgot that she smoked too. She became the REAL person she was meant to be: so loving and caring- funny humor and couldn't get enough of us kids & being a grandmother was beyond pure joy for her!
6 years later she passed away at 2:am, There was an instant FREAK thunder/lightning storm that stayed over her house (we were all at right then) lasted until the sun came up. constant rumbling flashing for hours!!! in San Francisco, that just never happens!

Her nickname was "sunshine" and her last name was Storm!'
From then on I believe that heaven / angels / the spiritual world exists and it's right here beside us all day; those who pass can sometimes work a connection to us... If we're open.

But my mothers illness / recovery was supposed to damage her; but it was a blessing from heaven. My husband will be beside me always... Along with all of the folks that I've lived and lost.

I'm at peace with this reality. I choose my reality of FAITH, no one else. God bless you and your family :-)

Michigan Girl. Hang in there and keep the faith. You won't always feel so hopeless. My husband died 11/1/12 after a 21 month battle with brain cancer. I didn't want to be around anyone but our two kids for the first couple months. He is gone six months today and I am doing better. I have more hope that I will survive. It takes time, patience and hard work! Take care of yourself and let your friends and family help you if any are around. Keep talking to us. We are all here to listen. Love and hugs, Jocelyn~
