shared joy July 02, 2006 11:25 AM

 Beautiful proverb Ginger. And so true. Having someone share your joy is double joy. Having someone who can actually share your sorrow is very healing. I have been fortunate to have had both. I cannot imagine what some people go through that suffer alone during grieving times. This site can be a genuine help for those people for sure...as well as for the rest. A.

Thank you Ann T... July 03, 2006 3:31 PM

Thank you Ann T...I have always hoped that our little group has that to offer others especially when there isn't another person readily available to console their grief, perhaps in the middle of the  night or day even. I think sorrow and joy should be shared and that is how to know when we truly have a real friend, they appreciate our joyful moments without envy and know that our sorrow is a connection to others spiritually. The Planet Earth can be a bit lonely for us that sorrow, so many think it should be an easy and over and done with process.--ginger  [ send green star]
