    Re: For those who have lost someone

    We share so much together.
    We share the love of sewing, quilting, family and being together.
    We share the worries, the angst and the joyous moments.
    We share the sadness that life brings.
    We share it together, it helps not feel so alone, it helps knowing others understand which makes the burden of grief just that little bit lighter.
    We will never 'get over it', we can only go through it. But doing it with people who care and have walked that same path is a special gift.
    So together we may shed a tear, light a candle, rekindle memories that are bittersweet, share a memory that is silly and it all means the same This is the season of love and goodwill.

    There is a belief amongst my people (Indigenous) that when you see your shadow, you are seeing all those who have gone before you and were apart of you. And when you see that shadow, follow it right to your own feet that are set upon Mother Earth. You are a part of them and they are a part of you. Walk well upon this Earth for they are with you always.
    May you feel their love and be comforted during those moments of longing and loss.

      Over40Momma that was just so beautifully said. Thank you. And very interesting about the shadows.

        Thank you Monique.
        As always the holidays are difficult when losing a loved one. Of course, you know you have to go on, but it's sometimes difficult when all of a sudden you are 1/2 of a couple.
        There's no such thing as closure, and the saying "Time heals"(or Time Heals All wounds" isn't true. Time heals nothing. Sure, your longing and heartache never go away, but you "LEARN" to adjust to a new normal. Certainly not because you "want" to, but because there's no way to change things and put them back where they were.

        Again, thank you.

          That one gets me every time.

          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
