Sleepless in Florida

Sunday, May 06, 2018

These last 11 months have been filled with lots of emotions and stress, which makes it hard to sleep at times.

I know that we are all going through our own difficulties and challenges but on occasion there are moments that you just want to say STOP no more and why ME!!

Mom left me almost 11 months ago (6/14/17), then my FIL (9/22/17) still trying to heal from that we get into a battle to take custody of my MIL that my in-laws don't really care about but made it hard for my husband to finally get her close to us. Since we were the only ones visiting regularly. So still tying lose ends with that.

In the lost month I have lost 3 very close friends and today yet another loss. This doesn't even include the losses that a lot of Spark family/friends are experiencing.

I guess I must be vey vulnerable because my heart hurts so much every time I hear of another loss. I rejoice in that they are no longer in pain however I am sadden for those they leave behind and because I understand the pain for what they too must endure.

Believe me I am a very faithful person, and I know there is a time for all of us. If it wasn't for my faith I would not be able to function day after day.

I know this is Mother's Day week and it is really hitting home with me but I will hold my head up high and know Mom is with me always.

Sorry, but I just needed to unburden my soul before I continue my day!!!

May the peace of God be with all of you today and always!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You've certainly been through a lot and I have, no doubt, added to your demands by being sick myself. I hope you know how much I admire you and am sending you loving thoughts.


    P.S. Your mom is watching over you and is so very proud of you

    You have such a dear heart. Any loss is hard but to have them fall so close together is hard to imagine. May memories of good times shared with each individual and your faith continue to give you comfort today and in the days ahead.

    Sometimes the circle of life feels more like a straight line. You're stronger than you realize. Take care.
