As this will be my last post here for a while, I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you for helping me try and cope with the loss of my Jamie. It was really nice being able to talk to others who understood exactly what I am going through. I did get some good ideas and i cannot wait to start on my memorial garden it a couple of weeks. You are all very special to me and i could not have gotten through the anniversary without your words of comfort. As soon as i am not as "screwed up" I will be coming back and hopefully with a better attitude. If any of you ever want to drop me a line my email is email@example.com. Take Care and God bless each and every one of you. Love ya all!
But in all seriousness, please keep posting. We're all hurting, we all grieve differently, and we are all here to listen as well. I hope the memorial garden turns out lovely, be sure to share it with us!!
Tina, I dropped you a note privately as well. I, too, would love to see the memorial garden. That was something that offered me a sense of peace to work in and to watch bloom.
Finally, be gentle with yourself. Remember that this is not an overnight process. Remain focused on taking those steps needed that can move you forward. Even tiny steps count!
If you need/want to talk about your loss please know you are welcome to come by anytime. Also -- please remember this. You have a gift that would be missed here. Your understanding and support FOR others is valued and appreciated (self included.)
In the meantime, take the time you need but know we'll be here when you are ready.
