I have tried 9 times to write this post, each time it just didn't sound quite what I intend. Well here goes on No. 10.
Quite a few of you good folk over recent time have 'lost' a loved one. The hurt you feel and have felt comes across the miles. I really feel for you all. If it will help you I will tell you what I truly believe with all my heart and soul. When somebody we love and care for die we do not 'lose' them. We just can't see them or hear them but we can still talk to them. My own Mum died some 30 years ago but I still talk to her, after all why not, and if I close my eyes I can still see her. After all as Christians we believe the Good Lord is all around us so why can't our love ones keep Him company.
I hope this is of comfort to you all and if you may not agree with me please do not take umbridge, I intend no slight I assure you. Peace and love be with you all always

I feel my mom all around me. When I am with my daughters, when I am thinking of decisions, when I am lonely, when I need reassurance (which we all need from time to time) when I am with my dad, when I talk to my brother who is physically handicapped and now as a daughter who has the same thing, when I a tired ect., ect. I feel her all around me. and I miss her greatly and feel for my lonely sad dad. \
