A quick “hello”

Hello Everyone,

I won’t be blogging again until next week…
My family has been with my Dad and sisters for support and
to plan my Mom’s service for this Saturday.
I’m sure you can imagine how it’s been emotional
and heartbreaking, especially seeing my Dad cry.
When we hear him tell old friends that he lost his gal…

I’m at a loss for words after reading your beautiful thoughts,
but, thank you all so much for your prayers and love.
I’m also sorry to be missing your wonderful writing and
posts and unfortunately, I won’t be able to catch up, but please know
that you have been missed, as well.  I will do my best to respond
when I return~

My Mom, at 90, was truly happy that I started this poetry blog,
so her happiness will be with me forever.

A Big “Thank you” and Blessings to you all
and I hope you’re all doing well~
Lauren

    ~ Deb xx

    • Thanks so much, Deb…the service and reception were beautiful and all went well…emotions are still active and will be for awhile, even though we know she’s at peace and not suffering anymore…it’s the reality of not being able to call and hear her voice or see her, that will take time to accept…I hope you’re doing well, too, and I’ll be working on responses this week, then will start reading again~thanks for all your support, prayers and hugs! I need them~xx

  3. My sincere condolences. I recently lost my father at the age of 77. It was heartbreaking. I hope that the sympathy of your friends and the comradeship of your family will help you through this terrible time. We creative types feel the stab of pain more sharply than others. Don’t fight it. Ride with it. God bless, Russell

    • Thank you so much, Russell, for your warm words and I’m so sorry about the loss of your father, too…emotions will be active for awhile, but that’s part of the grieving process, so we’ll be fine…we’ve had wonderful support, as you mentioned, along with all of the blogging support, which is overwhelming..it all helps and I hope you’re doing okay, too~I send my condolences to you and your family, as well, and may you also find comfort in support from your family and friends~Blessings to you~

  4. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. It is most difficult to lose a parent, and how sad for your daddy too. Take good care of you. *hugz*

    • Thanks so much, Renee~it’s been an emotional time, but with time, our hearts will heal…my Dad is doing okay, but it’s heartbreaking to see him sad~one day at a time…and thank you for your hugs!

      • Your so very welcome. Your poems for your Mom and your Dad have brought back so many memories for me. Both my parents are in heaven now…hand in hand. They were married almost 50 years before my Daddy passed away. Time does heal, forever in our hearts and yes I often talk to them both. More hugs for you… 🙂

  5. Lauren, continuing to send thoughts and prayers to you and your family. It’s a difficult time, I know. May you find joy and comfort in all the good memories you have of your mother.

    We’ll all be here when you return and feel like posting once again.

    • Thanks so much, Betty. I appreciate your support and albeit a sad time, we are trying to remember the good memories…it’s the finality of her being gone that is hard to accept, but I know time will heal~

  6. Blessing and love to you Lauren. My prayers are with you all, you need to be with your Dad and family during this time. The blogging and all has to wait for now, because family is first. Sending lots of hugs your way!

    • Thanks, Gabby, we’re home now and everything went well, but the finality of it all has my emotions active still…it’ll take time, but your love and prayers mean so much, so thank you, again~I hope you and Autumn are doing well, too~xx

  7. Lauren, your precious mother is smiling down on you and your Dad and other family members right now. She loves your poetry; you know she does. We miss you so much, dear sister, and await your return with patience yet eagerness. Prayers for comfort and assurance as your prepare for your mother’s service. My own dad still struggles with missing my mother after 12 years, almost.

    • Thank you, Rose…we’re all home now and Dad is doing okay~time will heal, but it’ll take some time…everything was beautiful and went well and she is now our angel watching over us, but the finality of her passing is tough to accept. I’m reading some grieving books, too, that will help during this time~I’m slowly starting to respond on my blog, but I don’t know when writing will happen again…I’m sorry about your Mom’s passing, too, even though years ago. My mother-in-law passed away 20 years ago and we still miss her, so I understand~xx

        I’m doing alright, it feels like the world is spinning so fast. In a good way tho.
