Im trapped in this house.

It's 105 degrees

Just like when I was Trapped in December A snowstorm and fresh raw grief.

The heat forces my to busy myself inside.

Coming across searing memories, Hot and burning to my heart.

Testing my strength, my will to overcome, to survive this grief now almost through its 7th month

Hope and sorrow walk hand and hand Bittersweet memories.

Look Down on Me My Love, Help me through this. I know you're watching, guiding me, helping me see little sprigs of joy and amazement.

But for now, help me through the day

I will Love You Always

Your Irish Lass

For Trapped
by: Mariana

I am very sorry for your loss. I realize this is a terrible time for you. Remember that God is with you always and will guide you through this difficult time. The grieving process takes time.
I lost my husband on Nov 22nd so it has been 8 months. I have had so many sad moments that I cannot count them all. I cannot imagine loving anyone else. He was the love of my life.
I find comfort in my church and my children and grandchildren.

My 5 children are planning a birthday gathering for my 66 birthday which is Nov 20th but I asked them to move it to Nov 22 and it will be a tribute to my husband. My gifts will be the love of my children and the years spent with my husband.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
The Lord has given me so much and I am thankful for the years spent with my husband. I have wonderful children (not perfect) but wonderful and 18 grandchildren, a great grandbaby enroute on Dec 26th. Thank you Lord.

I would give anything if I could feel my husband's kiss once more on my cheek and again hear him say, "I do love you, you know."
Just take it a day at a time. That is what I do. Faith in God and knowing we will see our loved ones again.

There is a song I really love called "Life is hard but God is good." May you find comfort in God's love. This a a wonderful board with caring people so keep posting whatever is on your mind and heart. We are here for you.

I understand.....
by: Jenny

I lost my husband 20 months ago now.
He was 41 and I was 38.
Days go by in this bewildering world
we now find ourselves in but as time
goes by we find the strength to cope
a little bit better and with a little
more strength.

The down times still come and hit really
really hard and it is hard to get back
on track but somehow we do.
I feel that we still have this opportunity
to make the best that we can of the day
we have been given, hard as it is...

Will be thinking of you....

Me too
by: Judy

You know Hope, I am at the same place, seven months, now almost eight months, and I am still upset, weepy, lost and confused. I cannot fathom how I am going to take care of everything alone, with no one to talk it over, no one to give me an opinion, no one who I can come home to at night who just loves me no matter what happened that day. Sometimes I just sit on the couch and talk to Barry about things. The dog looks at me like I'm nuts and no one answers me back.

I am so lonely. My grief counselor told me to expect sad days but I am having sad weeks now. When will this get better? I know we have to hang on but Lord, I am so tired.

I am so sorry for your grief and sorrow. I too suffer as you. I lost my son in May of this year. Cry out to the Lord, ask Him to send angels to help you. Ask that one of those angels be your loved one. I do not know why we had to lose our loved ones so soon but I do know that it is like someone ripped my heart out. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
