I have been giving this a lot of thought recently as I am sure most , but not all, my health problems seem to have emerged after I lost Luke.

I think it has taken a toll on me.

Dealing with Depression and whole slew other health issues.

Just about LOST my mind when dd was hospitalized.

So scared but trying not to show it to her or ds.

I think we are so much stronger than we think and are Survivours.

Without ALL of you I definitely would have been LOST.

Lots of times I lurk...partly due to the RA...OTHER times can't see to type...through my tears.

One thing I wish for ALL of of us is Peace.

I mentioned our Mom today to my sister and even though it's twenty-one years this Christmas it's like it was yesterday...kwim?

I didn't mean to upset her but it is so hard to believe.

My ds was one and dd was three going on four who knew I end up going through a separation and divorce?...definitely not me.

He left before one year Anniversary and I think at first it was just too much.

ALL this time it's been them and me against the world.

Losing dd would have been my worst nightmare.

Sorry this is so long just venting myself a little.

My kids are around my sister's age when our beloved Mom died and she had been married two months.

I believe we still grieve for what might have been..."Should" have been...:(

My heart goes out to everyone here.

We are ALL on a similar journey.

I miss her I miss everyone I have LOST.

And that's okay.

A cousin of mine mentioned she missed her mom and I said I did to.

Our MOMS were sisters.

I miss them both dearly.

I treasure my memories and cherish her as I carry her forever in My Heart!
