Can it get any worse?

Friday, April 06, 2012

So last weekend I attended my 5th funeral in 6 months. The past 2 weekends alone i have had to travel to Utah (6 hour drive one way). 1st it was my cousing, lung cancer. Shortly after returning from that trip my brother called to say my mom had passed (multiple problems - but she had been in a hospital for 18+ months) So in a way, these 2 were blessings because they are not suffering anymore. Life is too short, life is too fragile. My prayer is that we will all be sure to show our appreciation to others for knowing them, as you never know when they might not be around anymore. RIP

    Sorry for you loss, but you mother was certainly lucky to have such care being in a hospital for 18 months. Most people now are sent to a "skilled nursing home" rather than staying in the hospital. Sorry she didn't get better.

    So sorry to hear you have been experiencing so much loss in such a short time span. You have a great attitude though. Stay strong!

    I know words dont make it easier but I am sorry for your loss. Remember to stop and smell the roses.. and to cry. People forget to cry and that really leads to stress on our bodies , mind and life. I have a dorky deaf pit bull who I cry with out in the field when I run her when I need to,,, thank God she is deaf she would probably freak at my noise..but I then feel great and face the next challenge with a smile.
