I am looking for comfort in this time of great sorrow.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for what has been your delight.
Kahlil Gabran


  1. Marie, my heart is breaking for you. Many hugs and Munchie kisses. I am so sorry

  2. No words of wisdom, just love and hugs....

  3. Sometimes we need to have a good cry. We are humans with many emotions to be expressed. Some days are crappy, cry if you need to. It feels better to let it out. There will be good days ahead. Really.
    Tina Goodrich

  4. Marie,
    I have no words . . . all I can say is that I am reaching for you, embracing and surrounding you with love and support.

    Bless you my goddess 'creator'.

  5. Marie, my heart is with yours. All of our hearts are together in this sad time. I wish I could give you a real hug, but know that I am sending you lots of love, my friend. xoxo Pam

  6. Oh Marie...I don't know what to say :(

    Sending you love my sweetheart...

  7. It's such a sad time. Love and hugs to you.

  8. What's happened, love?
    I'm so sorry for your grief. :(

  9. Marie - I came back to give you another hug. It's a very BIG HUG. xox Pam

  10. I love the is so perfect.
    Hang in there Marie; you have the rest of us, for what it's worth.
    It's not the same, but after losing both my parents 17 days apart, I learned the value of good friends.....and you're one of them! ♥♥♥♥♥


  11. The loss of a friend or even closer family member IS a deep thing to come to terms with, i know from fairly recent experience on 2 counts.

    Keeping fond memories, hopes & dreams close in your mind is little comfort but it IS comfort knowing they will always live on in you.

    I know my saying so can not change anything but you have my heart felt sympathy on the loss you have felt. Be strong or the loss has no meaning in the end my friend.

  12. Marie - I'm so sorry for your sadness.

    I'm so truly sorry!

    You are in my thoughts and prayers!!


  13. Thanks Kathi, I feel so much better with Munchie kisses. I got a visual from that and I even smiled. Thank you both!

  14. Thank you Cindy, Love and hugs feel way better than wisdom anyway!

  15. Oh I have been having those Tina. This is just a topper.
    Shas is also going blind in one eye and my insurance called and said they are raising my montlies to 1800$ from 1300$.
    That is 21,600$ a year, now how am I supposed to do that?
    It has been a very long month.

  16. Thank you so much Moonwolf(S). I am so grateful for the love and support.
    I would love to be able to create a different reality for myself.

  17. Thanks Pam.
    This whole month has been such a challenge.
    The love is soooooooooooooooooooooo appreciated.
    Love you.

  18. Celia, you sending love is enough, thank you so much.
    Love and hugs.

  19. My heart cries and laughs with your heart... I have huge shoulders that you can cry on....

    That is a beautiful quote and fits perfectly.

    Love to you ~Pattee

  20. It is a very sad month for me!
    Blessings all over you Lynda.
    Thanks for the love and hugs.

  21. Thanks for the hugs Manon.

    Love and hugs.

  22. You know that I am here for you. Hugs and more hugs


  23. I join your friends in their prayers and thoughts for you.

  24. Oh Marie, feel my arms around you. I know it's not's a song for you, Dave Crowder Band:

    Lord I'm tired
    So tired from walking
    And Lord I'm so alone
    And Lord the dark
    Is creeping in
    Creeping up
    To swallow me
    I think I'll stop
    Rest here a while

    And didn't You see me cry'n?
    And didn't You hear me call Your name?
    Wasn't it You I gave my heart to?
    I wish You'd remember
    Where you sat it down

    And this is all that I can say right now
    i know it's not much
    And this is all that I can give
    yeah that's my everything

    I didn't notice You were standing here
    I didn't know that
    That was You holding me
    I didn't notice You were cry'n too
    I didn't know that
    That was You washing my feet.

    All my love to you, Deb

  25. Oh, just a series of unfortunate events, Bridgett. With no pause for a breath. This month is too much. Just too much.
    I get knocked down when I get up so I am just staying down.
    Then I do not have so far to fall.

  26. Thank you Pam and thank you for coming back.
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh I needed that!

  27. Isn't that quote wonderful?? It seemed to say it all for me.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your parents Anne and so close too. That must have been horrid. It sounds like they just couldn't live without each other. Losing a parent is awful but two????
    This month over all has just been a huge challenge and I am not handling it with much grace at all.
    I know this is just life, but I am not feeling very strong right now.
    Thank you so much for being a sister friend, I am so grateful for you.
    Blessings on you.

  28. Jonty I am so sorry for your losses.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and thoughts. It means the world to me and it is wise indeed!

    I will be back to my silly, positive, and rose colored glassess in no time.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me, I love you for that!!

  29. Thank you so much Lori, your kindness does help to make me feel better.
    Thank you again for coming to tell me.

  30. Marie - What an awful month you have had. I wish I could come over and, well, I don't know, wallow, or give you all my jewels, or SOMETHING to make you feel better. Love you, too! xox Pam

  31. I know you are Pattee, not much laughing though lately is there?
    She was and is our delight.
    I know I need to remain strong, but I just gave up yesterday, it was too much, all of it.
    Thank you for the shoulders, I do appreciate them and you.
    Love you bunches friend!

  32. Thank you so much Nicole! I appreciate you and our new friendship very very much.
    Blessings all over you.

  34. It is a great deal to me Deb, thank you so much!
    The arms and the wonderful song have helped a great deal.
    Love to you my friend and I appreciate you so much!

  35. Oh Pam, I almost peed my self.
    You would give me your jewels?
    LOL!! Thank you so much sweetie.
    You have given me so much already, even jewels are not as good as what you gave me.
    Love you!

  36. Yes, 57, but I have always been immature. It's actually tomorrow...but Karli started early with a Day Before Your BD drawing.

    Love and hugs.

  50. You are not late Darla, you are right on time.
    Thank you so much for coming over.
    Your words touched my heart. You see, I see you as beautiful and want you to see that.
    Renee told me this once
    "I was taught the complete opposite; for us it is what is inside that matters, outside is genetics, but what do you the person bring to your life."
    She is so wise.
    Love and hugs.

  51. We are blessed aren't we Bella?
    Some days it just seems a little backwards is all. I feel so grateful to have had the time and nights of pure silliness with all of you before you came back here.
    I would love to do that again. I had so much fun. I appreciate you all accepting me in.
    I had a hell of a time trying to keep up with all of the craziness and loved every minute of it.
    I love you too Bella.

  52. Did you have a wonderful birthday Deb?
    Wine and cheese???
    You are so welcome for the birthday wishes, it was all my pleasure.
    Sometimes bloggie sends my messages to my spam folder, check there.
    Happy Sunday
    Love and hugs.
