COMING BACK TO SPARK FRIENDS AFTER HUSBAND'S DEATH

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

LAST YEAR WAS A DIFFICULT JOURNEY. WATCHING SOMEONE YOU LOVE FOR 25 YEARS DISAPPEAR SLOWLY EACH DAY WITH PAIN AND SUFFERING WAS SOMETHING I WILL NEVER FORGET. EVEN THIS YEAR I AM NOW, ALONG WITH MY SISTER TAKING CARE OF MY 90 YEAR OLD MOTHER WHO WE HOPE DOES NOT LEAVE US SOON.

LIFE GIVES US NO WARNING MANY TIMES. I HAD TO LEARN THE HARD WAY THAT EACH MOMENT IS SO PRECIOUS AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO SEE THE GLASS HALF FULL INSTEAD OF HALF EMPTY. EVEN THOUGH I DON'T FEEL I AM IN A GOOD PLACE I CAN SEE THE BENEFIT OF TRYING TO CONCENTRATE ON ALL MY GRATITUDES INSTEAD OF MY LOSSES.

I FIND NOW I MUST HEAL MYSELF ON MANY LEVELS IN ORDER TO GO ON SO I RAN TO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE WHO HAVE ALWAYS IN THE PAST BEEN A LIFE LINE FOR ME OF LOVE AND SUPPORT.
TIME DID NOT PERMIT THAT LAST YEAR SINCE THE DAYS WERE FILLED WITH HOSPITALS, DOCTOR VISITS, SEARCHING TO ANSWERS AND ESCAPE FROM PAIN AND SUFFERING BUT NOW THAT THAT CHAPTER IS OVER I RETURN HERE TO HEAL AND GO ON IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY I CAN.

THANK YOU AGAIN SPARK FAMILY FOR ALL YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST THAT HELPED ME GET THROUGH MY TRIALS AND KNOW I EMBRACE YOU ALL AGAIN FOR TODAY AND THE FUTURE TO ALL TOGETHER BE THE BEST WE CAN BY ON ALL LEVELS.

LOVE ALWAYS
YVONNE

    I'm glad you decided to come back to us. Some people would have given up on life in your situation.

    Take special care of your mom. I know what it's like to lose my dad and mom within a year of each other...so make every second count!

    God's blessings in this New Year.... Losing so much of your Life is something you will never get over...but with God;s grace, you will be able to accept it down the road as part of His plan for you and your husband.... So many others are at the same cross-roads...If you have not reached out within a support group, I hope you will consider doing that. For you never know what you will gain--and you never know how sharing your own path might bring peace to another... All the best, patti

    My heart goes out to you too, I am so sorry for your loss, know my prayers are with you, I know with coming back here getting re-connected to your friends and teams will start the road back to your healing and recovery, it's never easy being a caregiver so please take some time for you, enjoy those special moments with your dear Mom, I encourage you to spend time going down memory lane with your Mom by remembering and talking about happy things you both did that will bring a smile to both of your faces.. Take care my friend & God Bless you! emoticon emoticon
