I will add my welcome to new folks. This group offers love and support to assist people with the most difficult of times. Any question ir cimment is fair game, and we will provide guidance and offer comments on what worked for us. Each grief journey is unique, but the support of those who have gone through their own can be invaluable.
After almost 12 years since my major grief journey began, there are times when it is still overwhelming. THe Chase Bank here in the is nor airing a commercial about a man and his daughter as she prepares for her wedding. It intersperses him seeing her as a little girl with the wedding day. I admire the craft and excellence of the commercial, and it always brings me to uncontrollable tears since I will never have that experience. Just part of the journey that never ends.
Oh my good gosh Tim...You most certainly struck a chord in me today. And I have not ever lost a daughter. I lost a niece and I find myself looking at others graduating and just being a girl, hanging out with her friends, I see these lovely young people all the time at the library where I work and think of her always in those moments. And I am sure this is difficult for my sister more than I will ever know. I can only send you lots of love and this:
Please know that you are loved beyond words by her and that your grief we all do share. peace & blessings upon you Dear Tim.---ginger
I have no children, but my handsome, lovable husband was everything to me. Whenever I see a happy couple, I think about all the good times and love we shared... and I am unable to hold my tears...
Even though my situation is entirely different from yours, I can understand how unbearable your loss must be! Your daughter was part of you. However, I'm convinced that she's watching over you, and we're all here to help you overcome your grief, or at least offer our empathy, love and support.
