Dear Sweet Mercy,

When I read this I thought of you. You have been suffering for so long. I am so sad about your brother. Remember to have faith in your God! Sometimes it is all we have. You are a wonderful, loving woman. You have been such a wonderful compassionate friend to so many of us here. I am sending you my energy and my love to carry you through one second at a time. Love Sue

We learn so much about ourselves on the road to recovery after loss.  Not all of it is good, but all of it is important.  I don't think there is a more important lesson that the souls can teach us, than to learn how to forgive ourselves for whatever we have done to ourselves and those around us because we are in pain.  We can't hope to move on to a perfect world if can't see the importance of setting ourselves free from guilt, from anger and from pain.  To forgive ourselves is to fix the soul, and lighten the load here just enough to be able to continue our journey of hope. – George Anderson

Hi Mercy, thank-you for your kind comment.  I'm so sorry that you lost both your mom and your brother.  That's a double whammy, but it sounds like you're making great strides with getting through it.  I'm so happy to hear you have a daughter.  I have a feeling the two of you will be best of friends and she'll be the source of so many wonderful days ahead.  She's definitely one great big reason to be alive and well.  I also live in the Nashville area and I was seeing a grief counselor for awhile and she's the one who told me about the Alive Hospice, so I hope you'll try it.    Anyway, I hope you're having a good day and hang in there!  You've got so much going for you already and I feel a lot of positive things are coming your way!

Thank you, Mercy for your kind words, in the midst of your own suffering.  I'm so sorry you are so alone in your grief and that your husband is no help!  Maybe you can find a support group, or some people who at least have been there and can understand.  My issues aren't with my parents, but as I told you, my sister in law and brother, but I know this too, shall pass.  

Life goes on.  My grandmother always said things have a way of working out in the end.  So be it.  
Take good care of yourself; you are loved and needed.

Hi, I saw your comment about Thanksgiving and can totally relate.I lost my mom to cancer almost 2 years ago and that whole spiel people say about time healing is BS. As long as I am living, I will miss my mom who was my best friend. You have a lot of connections that are the same as me. I lived in Antioch as a little kid and my sister's birthday is May 28. The positive thing I focus on is my children, but even that makes me sad b/c I think of all what my mom is missing  out on!

Has Not Happened

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider.  He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves.  We can either look forward or backward.  Well, it all sounds good until I get home to an empty house, an empty life, no friends I really like, a family who thinks I am doing "better", and a husband who is gone.  All the things…See More
