Close your eyes and remember the hearty laughter, the tight squeezes, all the I Love You Mom's and thank God for loaning us our loved one. I keep trying not to think about my son but he is there in my front brain. I hope all your birthday wishes float up this year, so that blessing will sprinkle down on you. I hope your spirit continues to stay as free and lovely as it is now. Just enjoy this missing feeling. I just try to get through each day, and it is very, very hard.
Life hasn't been same ever since. Thanks for your poem, it was beautiful. I hope to have many more years to extend you the same courtesy. There are certain things in life that exceed your expectation, and you are one of them. No one ever saw it coming.
Today I am right where I want to be in my life: next to my favorite nephew. I would love to tell you that the pain eases, sorry I can't, because it doesn't. What has helped me through this is that knowing that everything happens for a reason. My husband was away for nine weeks that time, and I was so lonely. Robert was drunk and driving my son home from work, a trip that should have only taken 10 minutes.
The grief and pain that I go through everyday is a mirror image and reflection of yours and I try to fill it with the lovely memories and his awesome smile. He was attending Auburn University in Alabama. My husbands family have been complaining that we never visit them but my husband is scared to leave the house because of his panic attacks. They tried to go in to fix it didn't work. I recommend buying her a card or writing her a letter telling her how much you miss her and whatever the babies name was. She couldn't' understand what the young man was saying about Matt.
You bring such wonder to my life, and I cherish every moment spent with you. And you have been a great young man from the day you were born. Rob was a beautiful person loved by many. My son was only 20 yrs old and the light of my life. I never got to say goodbye, because by the time we found him hanging in our upstairs bathroom, it was too late.
We learn to live with the pain. By the way her son lived. I am very sorry for all the losses. I still find life very very hard I cannot bear to see photos or listen to music , and my grandson who is so like his dad breaks my heart but also lifts my heart. There is not a day that goes by that he is not on my mind. I hope your birthday is full of excitement and adventure. .
Happy birthday you lucky duck! I miss you my dear son. Make mistakes while you still can nephew, and remember that you only get one chance in life. I cannot cry and really miss him very much. Probably cry in the fetal position curled around my phone. Listen to your body; she is telling you what you need.
He went away for a week now on a business trip. She always has her nose up into to everything, with two kids, work in the gov. There's no real term for a griever of an old love. Life has changed, everyone changed. Thank you for sharing your poem. The pain is hard to endure but the pictures help us to remember those precious times and keep the memories alive.
