May God lift the grief from your soul
The ache from your heart
and the wounds from your spirit
Let tears flow when they come
and allow yourself time…
Feel the Love that belongs to you
even more the Love God has for you
In this world of our making
He is still there for you…and so are we…Love!

I know this was written for Harlen but as I read your posting I started to feel a little lifting of my spirit. The one that I hide from others around me. I too have had many loses over the past 18 months and have not been able to really feel the grief. Especially for the loss of my husband. In a form of denial. Thank you

Hi, I'm so sorry about your situation, but I understand as I lost my father in law late Sept and then we had a memorial service in Nov so that my oldest daughter could be here. The stress just consumes you somethimes. I hope you are finding things a littles easier now?

Good to see you back Harlen, I was beginning to worry about you.

Harlen: welcome back! Hope you had a nice holiday and that the year ahead will be better and brighter for you and the family. As much as we all enjoy the holiday season, they are often a horrible time for people when it comes to stress. This year was a quiet one for my wife and I. We decided early on in the season that we would not worry about what we couldn't do and focused on what we COULD do. We filled our stockings with love and wrapped each other instead of packages.
