Next year i hope is my year

(Away over here in Northern Ireland)

Hi to all my friends,

I'm now two years into my life without Richard,
I have had many many outbursts of down times
but also many times of feeling im doing ok....
and you know i am...with my girls who i love so much.

I have been thro so much emotionally physically mentally and totally tortured over the last two years but i have come out a much stronger person.

I hope that thro your journey u may feel this subtle difference and i do hope for the future and i fully dont want to travel this unbelievable world on my own.. im too young at now just 4o...
Words i thought i would never say but i say them to you all in whatever way your future moulds itself.

Happiness and life.......... one go. Without Richard never the same. My one and only true love but my hugs and kisses are to you all from Northern Ireland.

Love to you all in the new year....I'm having fancy dress Abba theme.....

Richard would love it....He probably will!!!!

Love and best wishes to our next year together 2011 from little old me away over here.

Thank You for being there...

The New Year is approaching fast. I want to slow it down I just got through Christmas. And Our wedding anniversary is/was on the 1st of Jan.

I cannot even begin to express how grateful that I am for you helping me through this year. I know the group of people that I have relied on to carry me through are struggling towards this new life we have been dealt.

I Like to think that we are beginning to see the sun and that it shines for us. Beckoning us to peep out of our dark caves of despair and come play. Live again and find smiles where there have only been grimaces and tears.

I wish this for us all. I do hope to shed this cloak of loneliness and allow myself to be happy.

My best to you and many thanks for all that have ridden this rollercoaster of grief. I might just open my eyes and laugh; life is after all supposed to be a fun ride right?
P.S Zoe are you O.K? haven't heard from you lately

Hope To Be Where You Are Some Day
by: Pat J

It's just been four weeks for me. I'm numb~just existing really. I made it through Christmas on auto pilot (for the sake of my family).
I pray daily for strength and fortitude. I'm not liking myself because there are days that I actually find myself doubting my faith (which I know is ludicrous).

I hope and pray that I will make it somewhere close to where you are within the next year or two. I just don't know. My family and close friends are a joy and very comforting but when I'm lying alone in my bed at night the demons set in. My husband was much too young also. Life without him is something I'm going to have to learn. I've never lived alone in my life and the thought of that frightens me.

Thank you Jen for your wonderful words of encouragement. I'm going to try to focus on my blessings as midnight arrives tomorrow and I begin my frightening journey into 2011 without my husband by my side.

Thank you

Thank you, Jen, for your words of encouragement. I am having a tough morning and I came here hoping for something that would help me make it through the day and your words helped. I'm glad you are getting stronger, I hope to be able to say that one day, as well. Take care.

BTW: I am half Irish on my Dad's side. The other half is Italian. I would love to visit both countries one day. Lise really wanted to go to Italy and Ireland to visit where my Mom and Dad were from. She was looking forward to it. I will have to go for her one day.
