My Inner Goddess is hurting and lost

Monday, September 17, 2012

I was having a wonderful day. The perfect Spark day. I was going to write something cute and funny in my blog to cheer me and anyone who reads it. But as I was settling down to my nightly Spark reading and writing my cell phone rang. I tripped over the dog on the way to get it and saw that it was my sister. Grumbling I jokingly said "Someone better be dead". And she responded "actually yes, someone is".
My beautiful 60 year old cousin died in a motorcycle accident today. He was a wonderful Son, Husband, Father, grandfather and person.
Our family has been blessed with no deaths since my grandparents who died in the 1950's so this is a true shock to everyone. We all were suppose to live forever emoticon

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the loss.
I know he is watching over us and we will see him again but what to do with this unknown pain.

I joined Sparkpeople to lose weight. That's it. I really didn't have time for all the silliness of blogs and community boards. After all, It's virtual, not real. Then I got curious and tired of being anonymous so I reached out and joined boards. And to my amazement, people reached back. What a wonderful caring community
Now in my time of pain and need I am so happy I have you all to turn to.
Bless you all in the joy you bring others and yourselves.
Thank you for welcoming me into the Spark family.
Blessed Be to you all

    I am sorry about your loss of your cousin. The loss of any loved one is painful. I am sure you will find comfort in your family and the friends you have around you. I belong to the team - Lost a Loved One - it is a place where those of us who have lost someone near and dear to us share the ups and downs of grief and remembrance. It provides a lot of comfort and support. I have lost several family members and like you - we all thought we'd live forever - my parents lived to old age before they left but my son was only 36, my significant other also 36, and my nephew only 19.

Prayers for your entire family as they go through this painful process of grief and loss.
