Wishing you well This christmas

(Northern Ireland)

Hello to all my friends,

Just wanting to wish you all, at whatever stage of this journey you are on my best wishes.
You all have brought so much to my life in the last few months and i call you all my friends.

You have all been a huge part of my life and my understanding of grief and i am really grateful to you all.

All the best for the Christmas period, stay strong and enjoy your families. My girls 14 and 16 still can't wait for santa, A sad old job but i will do it as i believe Richard is supporting me in every way.

I wish my life was different or should i say just the same as it was two years ago but its not, so so sad but i am strong and proud of the girls and i.

Thanks again for being there in 2010 and helping me.

Love to you all from Northern Ireland in 2011.

wishing you well this christmas

Jen, and all those who posted comments - where would we be without this site - in a worse place, I am sure - when I read your post last night Jen, I cried, and I have just read it again along with the other posts, and I have cried again -

I miss my husband like you would miss an arm if it was chopped off - as if a part of you is missing - and it is - you are missing the other half of yourself.

But I know I will be ok -

To all our friends on this site -
may the new year bring some joy into your lives -
remember - one step - one breath

take care

Jen - thank you for your support and love over the last year - I am down in my home town with my son, his partner and her family - and I am so lonely - I am using a borrowed computer, and I am sitting in an alcove with it - and I feel so sad.

The home I am in was my husband and my family home, my son lives here now, he has changed a lot of things, and mostly I feel okay, but it is later in the evening, and I am feeling restless, but I have had too many drinks to go out -

I feel bereft again - how can I survive without John - I know I will, but there are moments when I just don't know how.

Enjoy your time with your girls, I hope they believe for a long time yet.

Take care -
one step, one breath

Merry Christmas
by: Shirley

Thank you for your sweet wishes Jen. I'm sending some back to you from Los Angeles, California. This is my first Christmas without my sweet son Dimitri. He died August 9th this year. I'm going on 5 months without him. It is the most agonizing feeling in the world. He was only 23 and had so much joy in his heart. He made me smile all the time with his silliness and his teasing. Leukemia is cruel and wicked and hateful and took a beautiful child from this world.

Thank you all...


Indeed it has been a long lonely year without our Loves. But we Have Grown, have Survived. And I have you and the others on this site to thank. Here's wishing a better year for us all filled with Hope and Optimism for the future.

for Jen
by: Mari

Thank you Jen. You have been there for others too including myself.

I wish you well also, lots of blessings heaped up. I know how much you miss Richard and he would be so proud of the way you are handling things. The girls will no doubt have a positive effect on you in their excitement of santa and the gifts they receive. By the way, you seem like a great mom.

I realize things may never be the same as we have been forced into a situation where we have to cope. I have never gone through so much in my life and God is helping me. I miss my husband so much. I am to be a great grandma for the first time any day now. How my husband loved the babies. Take care of yourself and remember we care for you and God cares for you too. Keep posting whatever you feel in your mind and heart.

Chrismas to you also....
by: Cindy

This is my first year without my husband in my life for Christmas in 35 years. This is so difficult and I am in so much grief, but I am thankful that I do have people to talk to that are going through the same thing. He was my life and I just lost him November 15, 2010. I just can't believe I will never see him walk through the door again. My heart just breaks. He blessed me with two beautiful children too. They are grown have been so wonderful to have been here for me during this difficult time even though their hearts are breaking too for they loved their daddy so very much.

My best to you...
