Hi all,

I will be going to my cousins this year.  Hopefully I can make through the Holiday this year, didn't do so well last year... :tearyeyed:
I know this is supposed to get maybe bearable is the right word, but it seems the greif  comes back so quick, every time I think I have a handle on it, everything just comes crashing down.
I miss Bill so very much my heart just aches.  Every milestone for Matt, every problem with the house, I just don't know how to ride this emotional roller coaster any more. Hopefully this too shall pass?
Wishing all some peace and comfort in the coming days and weeks.... :love9:

Rose

Hi Rose....so nice to see a post from you! Regardless of how much time has gone by, the holidays are always difficult. Those grief bursts from their memory, every memory of holidays spent together, can be rough.

Time does help. That time is very different for us all. Remember that our pain is fueled by our love for them. No love...no pain. But, I'd rather feel the pain than feel on top of the world just months, even a year or two after they have died because that would be more painful if I had nothing to miss. That pain would be unbearable. So, I can live with this pain.

You'll always miss Bill just as I will always miss all of my loved ones who have died. How could we not? But, one day you'll feel that life is calling to you (with a smile) instead of beating you up and that will be a good feeling. Better days will come, Rose. Believe me!

Wishing you peace, also and much happiness in your future! You certainly deserve it!  :love4:

Love,
Terry

Thank you for your kind and beautiful words and thoughts.
I honestly don't know how you do it, through your own pain and grief, you ALWAYS have words of encouragement for others!
Hope you have some peace and comfort and joy in the coming days as well. :love4:

Kit's mother invited me to come to WI again this year but due to work committments I'd have to fly on peak travel days and cut the weekend short. Gina invited me to go camping with her and her kids ... haven't been camping in decades though. Gonna have to think on that one. ;-)

It sounds like everyone made it through Thanksgiving with no visible scars, which is always a plus!  :love4:

John,

What did you end up doing? Did you go camping with Gina and her kids?
