    Do you ever feel as though the weather affects you more now than it did before the death of your loved one? If so, you aren't alone...

    I'm just the reverse. My daughter died in mid-August during an especially hot summer for our area, so warm & sunny days are the most depressing to me. We scattered her ashes on her favorite holiday, Halloween, at the beach during a tremendous downpour with some really strong wind gusts, getting soaking wet -- and it seems like every time it rains a lot, I feel her spirit.

    i'm excited to reach that point. i'm totally okay missing my baby for the rest of my life, but it'll be great when it no longer sucks the air out of my world or stains any happy memories i try to make.

    I'm greatful for my students. They have helped me laugh again. Especially when a five-year-old boy proposes to me but says that it won't work because I'm already married and I'm too old. I'm 33!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    i am grateful that my child was with us when she passed. i often think of parents whose children are kidnapped or other such terrible things, and i think, i could have it worse. i'm grateful for her older siblings that keep me getting out of bed each day.

    I'm grateful I even had the chance to become a mom even if it wasnt enough time with our son , he made me a mom! I'm grateful for my family, my husband, my dog and my Angel parent friends as they all have a huge role in comforting me as I've been on my grief journey. I'm grateful that even though I have health issues my husband is supportive in that as well.

    My 32 yr old son, Taylor, was murdered on 12-22-16 in Memphis, Tn. I am also divorced 1 month on April 15th. My home is now for sale & at 59 & disabled, I am so overwhelmed I don't know how I am going to survive all of this. My son left behind a wife, his 7 yr old daughter & my only grandson spent his 3rd b'day in the funeral home where his Daddy (my child) lay in a casket. His wife won't allow me to talk to my grandchildren now. She accepts money & gifts, but now has cut me off from talking to my grandchildren, my only links to my beloved Son. My heart is crushed!

    I am so beyond grateful that I got my last hug. I was leaving and said bye, but started to walk to the door and I turned back around. I walked into the room and my daughter got off the couch and hugged me. A very long hug. She died the next day. The memory of that hug brings so much peace to my heart. I miss her everyday.
