I hope everybody has a loving good weekend and let's celebrate our Mom's for giving us life. I love you Mama!!

Comment by Brett Bowman yesterday

My mom loved Judge Judy. You couldn't convince her that was not a real courtroom. She also loved The Shark Tank and Everybody Loves Raymond. It all seems like just yesterday since we watched those shows together. I love those shows, too, but it was being with my mom that made it special. I never realized how true that was until I lost her.

Today was a good day! I love you and thank you so very much Mama! I think of you everyday while cleaning up your home and getting it ready for sale. It is still hard for me to go there and not seeing you watching Dr.Phil and judge Judy! I have not tackled your bear and clown room yet.i feel your presence there strongly and I cry. Here's to you Mama I love you so very much!!

Bluebell, like you, it's my dogs that keep me going. My two little girls were both my moms and mine. They were right by my side all of those years that I was mom's caretaker. They gave equal love  to both of us. I couldn't have made it through this without them. They have my heart.

My mom couldn't have know when she brought these little dogs home that they would one day be my lifeline.

There is a reason why people have therapy dogs. I have two. Not because I can't see or walk very well. It's because my spirit is broken. I don't know if they are aware of that. Maybe not. They give unconditional love one way or the other, just like my mom did.

Thank God for them.

Comment by BLUEBELL on Wednesday

I have a few people in my life I can count on for support and I have my sister. But even though I have them, my heart still feels broken. When the grief I feel is as intense as it has been the past couple of days, it is hard to remember I do not always feel this way. About the only thing in my life right now  that makes me really smile is my dog Bailey. I am blessed to have him in my life. He doesn't judge me if I am having a bad day. He just keeps on smiling and wagging his tail. He is a natural clown and loves to play with his squeaky ball or chicken. He loves me unconditionally. He reminds me there will be better days ahead and the sadness I feel right now because of the loss of my Mom will lessen in intensity again. Thank you all for your prayers. God bless you. It is good to know I am not alone and I can come here and say what is in my heart and just be my true vulnerable self.

I say it every morning and night Janie

Bluebell, I am right there with you, I used to talk to my mom every single morning at the same time, and on my way home from work, some days I drive home and I say mom I miss you so much.

Prayer is very powerful as Brett has said, remember God is right next to us always.

 

Comment by Brett Bowman on Wednesday

Janie, I think that you speak for all of us. "I love you, mama."

Comment by Brett Bowman on Wednesday

Bluebell, I feel you. The reality of life is that we all have to get up in the morning. I guess if a person could afford it they could just stay home all day. Janie realizes how blessed she is because she has a wonderful support system. For many of us that is just not happening. Why do I keep putting one foot in front of the other? My mom has two little dogs that I promised her that I would take care of. They are a blessing. Beyond that, I can only hope and pray that the Lord is working on our behalf. I will pray for you. I will pray for you with all my heart. We have no idea how powerful a prayer can be. We just can't know. It's sure worth a shot.

I'll tell you something else. I may have never met you. I wouldn't know you if I passed you on the street, but believe me when I tell you that I care about you and I know that you are hurting. You are not alone. I am here in North Carolina crying, too. You may not see me but I am crying right along side of you. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Maybe you will find your way back home.

Repost: Is It Wrong to Grieve?

Is It Wrong to Grieve?Have you ever had a brief bout with illness? Perhaps you recovered so quickly that you have practically forgotten the episode. Well, grief is not like that. “There is no such thing as ‘getting over’ grief,” writes Dr. Alan Wolfelt in his book Healing a Spouse’s Grieving Heart. However, he adds: “Over time and with the support of others, your grief will soften.”As an example, consider how the patriarch Abraham reacted when his wife died. The Bible says that “Abraham began…See More

They don't understand.

How do you deal with well meaning family/friends who just don't understand what you're going through? 2 of my sisters-in-law still have their husbands.  One does not have a good marriage, she talks about her husband dying flippantly she says things like "I know if _____ died I would use the insurance money to go on that vacation he never wants to go on."  Then in the next breath "Are you still going on your cruise next year?  I could take (my husband's) place if you want so you're not alone."…See More
