Wilela ... sorry for the mistake of 19 years when I should have put 9 down. Senior moment! LOL
Stacey ... I am so happy the important people in your lives were at the birthday and the weather held out. It happens to many of us where we make too much food, but I always feel too much food is better than not enough food and of course more for us. LOL
I personally when I pour myself into something like guests over or going out where there is a large group of people I am excited to do either, but then memories can flood our minds and we over-do ourselves (not a constant routine in our lives right now) and we are left lingering to our grief and being over-tired. You put a lot of work into this party hon. I am glad you are going to see a counselor and talk things out, but I think what you are going through right now is very normal. Please let us know how things go for you.
Janeo ... You know you have prayers coming from me. I am so sorry to hear about Angela. Just for your information a good friend of mine passed away a few months before Ernie was to go in hospital and she was in Hospice with brain cancer. I want you to know that Angela will not be in pain as my friend wasn't and it is a quick way to pass. It gives little comfort I know.
I often see people that I feel should pass away and leave the good people here to go on, but then I began to realize that perhaps the good people in our lives at some time or other will pass away unexpectedly because their work is done on this earth and they have earned the divine journey into a more loving and peaceful place although I believe they surround us with their love and are there for us when we need them. These words I've said bring little comfort I know because we grieve so deeply for our spouses and life seems so unfair. Our loved ones are special and no matter how we think on earth of how unfair it all is they are in a better place. Sometimes I feel that all those I loved and passed away (especially Ernie and some family members) are in a wonderful place full of love (none other like we've ever felt) and at peace and I feel abandoned and I've missed out on the journey. We have work to do until our time comes and then I believe we will join them.
Hang on my dear friend and please keep us informed as to how your friend is doing.
Much Love & Hugs
Happy Birthday Janeo. Hope you were able to enjoy it somehow. Holidays and special occasions are especially emotional and bittersweet.
janeo- your right about that.
