    by the kind and open hearts of my fellow hubbers and friends.  I would like to thank you for your supportive and kind words when I have needed it the most.  Your comments and emails have been a thread of hope for me today.  It is your love and words that have helped me through the night and the day. 

    You have all given me a shoulder to lean on and shared your strength with me.  I am greatly humbled by your kindness.

    Thank you to each and every one of you.

    I have 3 granddaughters from two of my three step sons. If something happened to any of them, I am not sure I could go on. You are an inspiration to others who have had similar tragedies but you are also a  champion of  courage for those of us who have been more fortunate.

    Thanks again for that incredible hub.

    @ Resspencer -- I have received more from you, fellow hubbers and friends than I can give back.  Truly, your understanding and words of comfort have helped me carry through the night and day.  I honestly don't know how I will cope with this hole in my heart.  But I know I will, as so many of you have shared your losses and shown me that the next day shines again. 

    @ Crazd -- I couldn't think of anyone better to be stuck with.  smile  You have given me a great gift tonight -- laughter. *hugs back*

    @ Tantrum -- I've missed you lately.  I wasn't going to take a break tonight and sign in, but I am glad that I did.  You've help me realize that life's like that, and we have choices.  Thanks Tantrum.

      Thank you.  I might just flood your box over the next few days.  Can you ship me a containerful of Kleenex?  I think I will use it all up.  Hopefully, the tears of crying will turn into tears of laughter.

    So very, very sorry for your loss. There is no way to make this better, and time seems to just increment forward leaving the healing process excruciating at best. Sending you kindest thoughts, hugs, and hope you'll talk to us very often. I think that's what really got me through my losses.

    Oh, these losses are so overwhelming when they happen. No solace, no comfort. It does bring back memories.

    I'm sorry you're going through this. I hope that those who love and support you near and far will be enough to help you bear this. I send you my support and love, such as it is.

    Such sadness...Beth100...so sorry to hear of this. I left you a comment on your Hub concerning this. At first, I did not know what this was about...? Now have learned after reading the posted link over to it. I'll have many prayers to you and your family through this...and for your lil' Angel.

    readytoescape -- Thank you for your kindness and support.

    prettydarkhorse -- I have no words at the moment.  Thank you.

    Daniel -- I can't seem to put the right letters to my fingertips to write the right words.  It's a difficult day today, but with your support, I can bare it a little better.  Thank you.

    Revive@OwnRisk -- Thank you for your understanding and compassion.  I appreciate it your love and support, more than you will know as it is a great comfort to me.

    MPM -- I just read your comment, and you are a good friend.  Thank you for being here for me.  Thank you for your prayers and thoughts.  I am at a loss of words once again.

    Hey Beth, glad to see you up and about, I hope HP is helping. I know, in my far less sad situations, it has helped me.
    Some online personas can be fake, but others are real. I see you have lots of love and support here. Others have been simalarly in your place. Of course no one has ever been in YOUR place. But we love you. I know I never fanned you and I feel it would look cheap if I did now, but I have seen you here in the forums and read some of your hubs when I was someone else. If you want, you can write me sometimes, if it helps any? Just..the act of spilling out words and emotion without fear of reproach or hurting someone else's feelings can be of huge benefit. Feel free to drop me a line IF you want. If not, thats fine. Youll be in my prayers.

    Justine,

    Thank you for reaching out to me as a friend. HP is helping me.  Writing always has, and to be able to share is that much more healing.  At the moment, I'm in good shape.  I can't say about an hour from now...

    Thanks for your prayers, and I'll be reaching out for your hand.

    Kimberly - Thank you for being a good friend.  I'm not sure why, but tonight I feel a little bit of peace and serenity.  I hope it lasts longer than a short period of time.

    General - When I feel despair, all I have to do is look at my other 5 angels, and I find the strength to pull up and put one foot forward.  It has been a great source of strength that you and everyone here has given me through this thread and the supportive and caring comments that are left on my hub.  Thank you.

    *Deep sigh*

    Thank you KCC.  I thought that maybe if I played around in the forums, I'd feel a little lighter.  I've had 2 hours of no tears tonight as I spent it with my daughter.  I'm hanging in there.

  28. KCC Big Country profile image86
    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    Beth, the tears will come and go, but the time between them will lesson over time.  It's ok to cry.  Crying can be very cleansing.  Crying is a way of releasing some of the pain you're feeling inside. Someday, the tears won't sting like they do now.  They will soften and you'll remember all the good times.

  29. Beth100 profile image83
    Beth100posted 7 years ago

    KCC, oh, the flood gates are open again.  You're so right about the cleansing. It's hard to be strong in front of my other children without falling apart.  They look at me and when I'm not all together, they start to panic.  My daughter senses everything that I feel. I'm trying, I really am.

  30. KCC Big Country profile image86
    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    Beth, I know it's hard.  Truly I do.  I too had a daughter I thought I had to be strong for.  She needs to see you cry.  She needs to know it's ok to cry too.  She's grieving too.  She's going to look to you for what's ok and what's not.  You don't have to be Wonder Woman today.  Just hold her when you cry and let her know that everything is ok.

    In my heart, I know what you say is true. I can't answer all their questions yet.  I'm still not able to go there.  Not yet. Maybe tomorrow.  I don't know. I'm not doing good again. I will check in again tomorrow. I think I bottled it up too long tonight.  Going to and cry for a while.  Thank you for guiding me Karen.

    May time lift your burden ever so gently from your shoulders; not removing all that encumbers you, but easing such a tremendous force to allow pain to flow into a retrospective of appreciation and understanding.

    @ Karen -- Thank you for checking up on me.  Today is a better day.  Focussed on the children and helped give them a great fall day as it was sunny and warm.  Day's winding down, so I'll see how it goes.

    @ PrettyDarkHorse -- Thank you for checking up on me, too.  I can feel everyone's love and caring surrounding me.  It has been the greatest support I have ever received.  With yours, and everyone's encouragement, I've made it through most of the day on a good note.  But the day is drawing to a close, and I'll be slowing down now.  So, we'll see....
