Look at this link for the story of this baby elephant who cries for 5 hrs after being rejected by its mother.

This is the true story of a man grieving the Love of his Life...He has written 2 books. I found it moving and as he spoke I was saying YES, YES THAT'S TRUE. I found this because as a former counsellor I had been looking at a new diagnosis of grief called Complex Grief. The 'symptoms' were those of a Love of your Life grief. But it was being seen as a new category of grief. I felt deep within that it was important to find out more - because the grief feelings…Continue
WOW WHAT WE DO FOR GRIEF....
Just got an email from a Chinese Friend who is a surgeon and lost his beloved
about 18mths ago. I would like to honour him for his work. He has volunteered in Cancer clinics
and helped another clinic develop new ways of healing cancer patients.
Recently he began volunteering in the outback of Australia without any pay. He said it kept his mind
off his loss. That he still missed her so much in…Continue
So may of us feel we're ageing, long to be hugged and held. Lacking confidence and energy.
Its been just over a year since my beloved passed away. He restored my life, we met 17 yrs ago - and it became a love of your life marriage. Loved the cuddles, the legs constantly entwined, if I sat up in bed reading a book, he would lie across the bed and my knees and look up at me. There was love, passion, fun, playful games, and just holding and gentle…Continue
My Roses This is a review worth reading

My roses: Darling Wes how are you my beloved?

I have missed you so much today….
Wes: My beloved Darling I am glad to hear you today and I hear
your words of love you say each day to me. But this is special
because I can reply to you as you…Continue

I was sent this today and I hesitated to share it with you. But something in my heart said that we need to know and realise where we are now and how to find our hearts desire…to be with those we love. We have hope but we need to know if its achievable. Also is there a deeper reason as to why we are going through all this?
Are we going to make it down the narrow road? We are grief filled and suffering. I hope that something resonates with us all on a topic…Continue
We need to know we are incredibly valuable to a harsh world. We have gone through a horror journey and are changed forever. We may not feel we have been very successful Grievers but Oh yes, we are special. We are withstanding powerful forces that want to shame us, bring us into their view of what is right. I am filled with amazement at what the people in this Village are overcoming - however slowly. We are being tested to the limit of our endurance and the limit of our …Continue

This is a song that was written about the loss of a loved one. See this link.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-hJ87ApWtw Lyrics are " This is what it is like when the Sacred is torn from your life and you survive.It seems so unfair. This is what it is like to be held."
It was sent to me by a friend who was grieving the loss of a tiny baby. But it applies to all losses of loved ones.
I am feeling…Continue
Still not getting enough sleep, tossing around physically and mentally when I should be asleep. Got to thinking today about how many people had I seen in the last 8 days. (Not people in shopping centres) but people I know. It wasn't many.
My count was 4. How relevant or close were they? One was a friend who went with me to a concert. One was my gardener, who says he has my interests at heart. He talked for quite a while and then did some work for me. He is the man…Continue

I have sat down and spoken with him every month , as I have seen this year rush away. I have had a vision of him, his sister has had two visions. There have been many other signs of his presence over these last 10 months. But even with all this I have been so broken hearted.…

Found this article called SECOND TIME AROUND by Marie Claire
ONE MARCH AFTERNOON IN 2010, I logged on to Facebook and glanced at my relationship status. My 42-year-old husband, Frank, had been dead for a month, but it still said "Married." Then, in a surreal, only-in-the-21st-century moment, I changed it to "Widowed." I hesitated, but I had to do it: No word but widow described what I was. Single said…

(shortened version of the original article)
Love fires late calling.
When Perth* war veteran Stan Hopewell turned 80, he picked up brush and started painting for the first time in his life. But it wasn’t a late-life sea change or sudden desire to uncover his hidden inner artist that impelled this unassuming octogenarian to put paint…Continue
"O My Father, I have moments of deep unrest -- moments when I know not what to ask by reason of the very excess of my wants. I have in these hours no words for Thee, no conscious prayers for Thee. My cry seems purely worldly; I want only the wings of a dove that I may flee away. Yet all the time Thou has accepted my unrest as a…Continue
