Just checking in with everyone

Hi Everyone;

I hope everyone is doing well. I haven't left a message in a long time but come every now & then to see how everyone is doing. I never really had much to say. I guess I don't really have anything to say now but I'll write anyway. I have been alright. Have my good days & bad days. I guess that's what I have to expect for the rest of my life. I was sad to see many new postings from new people. Just know you all are in many people's thoughts & prayers all the time. I can't believe it's already February. Just under 4 months away from 1 year since my precious son left us & his 5th birthday. I can't believe how fast the time is going by. I am dreading it already even though it's not for a while. ANyway, I'll go for now, just felt like writing something. Best wishes to all of you!

RE: Just checking in with everyone

Hi, Brycesmommy! I'm so glad that you checked in with us and glad that you are managing alright. I certainly understand the dread of the 1st anniversary of the heaven day and also his birthday. Christin left this world just one week before her birthday and with the two dates so close together, I know the anxiety of the dreaded dates.
Really though, they will not be as bad as you may expect. Also, don't feel like you should be miserable on those days. On Christin's heaven day, I just try to think of the glorious place that she is in now and TRY to think of it as a happy celebration for her to have been joined again with our God with no more tears or pain, ever. For that, I have to be happy for her. The birthdays are a little different. To me, they are sad because I can't help but think of all the would have beens and could have beens and should have beens. Again though, I try to realize that her life may not have ended up as happy as I may wish that it would have. As we all know, life is full of hurts and disappointments and I try to console myself with the thought of even if her life would have turned out wonderfully happy, it still wouldn't have been as glorious as heaven is for her now. These earthly things are NOTHING compared to what they have in heaven.
I hope that maybe these thoughts may help you through the difficult days.
Thanks again for checking in. I am doing alright, too.
Our family has so much to be thankful for.
Take care and keep in touch with us.
