  1. Another Request March 14, 2021 WOW! This month we have climbed to over 11,000 members. This grief site is the only place on the Internet that has no ads to plow through and it also has an expert certified grief counselor who reads every post and responds to the ones who are requesting help during the grieving process. It is the members site and we read and get comfort from what we post being assured that whatever is posted is kind and nonjudgmental. Knowledge is what helps us get through hard times and the information provided by Marty is spot on. I have been a member sinc

    I find it very calming and comforting, razorclam. Thank you for taking the time to post. Kay, I have always been amazed by the colors of birds. The colors are so vibrant. Thank you for liking my Bluebird. Anne

    Your kind words, Marty, warmed my heart. I think it is important to remember that we will always grieve the loss of a loved one. I have found that our grief changes over time. Grief requires work and it helps to have a safe place to come to because those who are here understand the need to revisit. It has been over eight years since Jim died. I continue to come here because I have always felt accepted as I progress through this journey of loss. You introduced me to Pinterest and coloring as outlets to my grief. Today both of these activities are still important to me. My coloring

    I have found coloring to be helpful as I continue to grieve my beloved husband, Jim. It has also helped me with isolation during the pandemic. We each find our own way to continue living. I have been coloring since 2013 and most years I find different items to focus on as I adjust to my new way of living. I share with you my bluebird of happiness, holiday times, and my dragonfly. My bluebird expresses a change in my overall disposition today. Holiday times remind me of how good it is to share with those I love. And my dragonfly is a reminder that joy, and happiness can happen even after th
  5. A few years after the death of my husband, I decided to get a dog. We had a granddog that spent many days with us. I had many dogs in my life. Benji was different. This is my rescue dog, Benji, before his haircut. He was a Schipperke /Poodle mix and very smart. I did not know about his health condition because there were no papers on him. In less than a year he started to have seizures and over the months his heart just became too weak. I had already been to three different rescue places before this one and it was going to be my last one. It was love at first sight and he came
  6. Loss of a Spouse My heart aches for all of you who come here and share your pain. How fortunate we all are to have this safe place. I have no answers for you. I come from where you are now. The love of my life for forty years died in 2012 and I thought my life was over. It was not. It was a new beginning for me. Because of my age (78 years young) I have suffered many losses during these years. I have lost both grandparents, aunts and uncles, my parents, my siblings (all five are now with my parents) many friends and animals, but the most painful for me still is the loss of my husband.
  7. Thank you Marty, Dee, and Kay for your support. It has always been there for me. Kay, I remember our walk through your mom's last days and I was so glad she became softer and more appreciative during her last years. You are one special person and I have been blessed to have so many people on the forum who have been supportive to me. I am grateful to all those who mention my Jim's name.
  8. Time with my Alzheimer’s Husband As I look back now, I can remember funny and not so funny times. In the beginning I could not have talked about this, but it has been over eight years and today I can write about my life living with and caring for my husband (after forty years of marriage) for the last five years of his life. Way before Jim became ill, we had some serious discussions. Both of us prepared our papers that spelled out what our wishes would be at the end of our life. If it were possible, we wanted to die at home. And we both pledged to see that it would be done. We

  10. I don't know if it is my laptop or not but at the top of the index page I'm seeing only a part of the picture. This is different and has only showed up a few days ago. If others are seeing this let Marty know and if it is only on my laptop I'll have to what's wrong. I'm putting this here in case I'm not the only one. enna
