    Lost Him to the Sea.

    I loved him in that 6th grade, innocent way. His smile reminded me of the children I once ran the playground with. The boy who'd brush the dirt off my knee when I'd trip, even if his friends made fun of him. THAT was him. Even at 25, his presence made me kick at the tiny...

    My Grandpa

    I've lost many people I love in my life, both family and friends. The pain never goes away you just learn to live with the emptiness their absence leaves in your heart. Some you can at least say they lived a long and good life...but for some that is just not the case. We lost...

    I know deep down inside your never coming back

    but even so the hope you might one day return keeps me going on. I can't wait to see you again even if it is only in my dreams.

    My Mom's Death I remember it clearly

    This is the one I have been dreading.

    The year my husband died, during the first Christmas, I walked through it in a daze, numb, fog. I know I am going to have to face it again this year, 'tho the intensity may be less. There is no way around having to feel his absence. I had no one and nothing to distract me from...

    Not just. It has been three months.

    This is the first time I've been able to mention it at all. Distance. Time. Makes it easier to live with. I try to keep busy, even staying active here so I do not think about him. Everything is hard now. Everything. Not 'hard to get out of bed' hard. 'Hard to take that next...

    Our Crazy Angel

    I was shattered; emotionally torn, wiped out, and as hard of heart as you could get. Then I met Daniel. And within minutes, all that had melted away. It was the same for him. A uniting of souls, a shared passion. Against all odds I had fallen in love again. Under the WORST...

    How callous when people place a time frame

    for grieving. You are expected to "get back in the saddle", and some are more concerned about your productivity and profitability. I remember, I became furious as the attempt was made to shoehorn me back into the mold. I was deeply pained and saddened and outraged that the world...

    After almost four years of grief,

    I was run down physically and emotionally. Responsibilities, circumstances, and work had taken a toll on me. Burnout numbs the stinging pain of sorrow that gets stuffed away so deeply, it no longer cries to be acknowledged. It then plunges you into a feeling of nothingness and...

    and the blessings brought to us by the ones we lose. It's ok to be sad about it too but be reminded that they are carried in our hearts and minds. Though they are not here physically they are still with us.
