Thank you for understanding, Chatty.

There are so many sad videos on grieving and loss, but instead I'm posting an inspirational video. A video that won't make you cry, It's simply a gentle reminder that life is still good. God bless all.

Edelweiss,
Lookin' at that picture of your daddy, reminds me of a picture
I have my dad when he was young. Talk about handsome; he was handsome. But the nicest thing about the man, was his kindness.
He was so tenderhearted, gentle and sweet! What a wonderful man!

I wish you could post a photo of your father, Jabber.

Awesome. I'm still having problems with certain folks who want
to be unkind. When this is all behind me, then perhaps I can
share pictures of beloved family.

......taken this morning in our front yard.

Momma, you are with the angels and at peace, I know.
But at the same time, dear mother, canít help but miss you so.

Every Christmas song, I hear, that you loved so dearly,
Churns my emotions; heavy is my heart, eyes get teary.

Your picture is on our mantel, a lit candle glows next to you.
Sometimes I think you smile, when the flame flickers and moves.

It depends on my mood if I think you look happy or sad,
Still, your eyes seem to say, ďIím at peace and oh, so very glad..Ē

I hear your soft voice whisper, ďdry your tears, there is no need to cry.
Enjoy the gift of life, and live, live live, donít mourn, please no more sighs.

Feel the Christmas cheer within your home and deep within your heart,
And feel Iím with you, my dear, for my love will never ever part.

So beautiful Edelweiss...and they're the same whispered words I hear when I begin to be overwhelmed with the sense of loss...Mom, Dad, Gary, others...they all seem to ripple gentle peace and a gladness for being where they are - and always the exhortation to "enjoy the gift of life and live, live, live". These whispers of peace and joyful affirmation of life have helped me to move forward from a stance of death and mourning into a sacred ground where my heart can learn to leap for joy again. Slowly but surely we get there.

Thank you, Eagle.

Celtic? Orchid? Chatty? Jabber? You there? I hope you read my poem. This may sound strange, but I simply wrote it, without even trying. It was as if my mother guided me. I know 100% this is what she would say to me. I hope it will comfort you like it does me.

Bless you all, and every one else who is mourning this Christmas.
