I Am Also "precious"

I unexpectedly lost my husband at the beginning of 2009. He had a good heart trying to help other when they were in need. It has been a tough year. Having the support of my family and church family has helped a great deal. Most of all what I believe has helped me the most is having faith in God. God is there through the good times and the bad times. When you lose someone that you love so unexpectedly you are going to have good days and bad days. You just have to take it one day at a time though. I really don't think I would have gotten through this without God, my family and my church family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Nothing that anyone can say seems to make it any easier. Trust in god and he will see you through. I know how you feel. Take care.

Thant you for your sharing. God is everything. Oh sure, there are people in our lives, but only God can care for us unconditionally. In the end, God is all we have.

I didn't have to ask them to be there for me, they just were. I know they pray for me (my church group that is). My family is there for me no matter what happens and is willing to usually go to things to help support me if they are able to do (at least my mom and sister are any how).

When my best friend's mother lost her second husband (his stepfather), she simply fell apart. Having that core belief in a higher power (whatever it is) can help you sustain through the worst of times. Unfortunately, she did not have this, and her life's been in a tailspin ever since.<br />

I am so sorry for your loss. We're here for you.

I too am sorry for your loss.<br />

But when the news shows me a world that so often is not about people helping people, people working together to be there for others... your story (and stories like this) inspire me, maybe better said... remind me that there is such thing as community out there and that people really do step up for each other, family or otherwise.<br />

I am curious, do you feel like you even had to ask these people to be there or were they simply, just there. For you. Supporting. Loving. Giving.
