Life Is A Struggle








Life Is A Struggle





I lost a good friend today. Karen passed away this morning, and I will miss her terribly.

I hope I did my best to tell her how important she was to her friends.

Every man deals with these things in his own way.

I will take a long weekend, and see you all next week.

  1. I think that the people we love live on in the people who are left behind. Not just in a DNA sort of way, but in the memories and the heart. Each thing you did together. The laughter, the tears, the good times, the bad times, all of the shared experiences. Until the last person who knows them passes, they live on right here. And, of course, a person's spirit never dies. It merely changes vibration so that it becomes all spirit energy. Honestly, I think that the mourning we do is for ourselves. Our loss. The fact that our time with that person on this plane is over. Because I believe that no one is ever really over. Our spirit is forever. We all live forever. However, I do think that we all need time to process that loss. So, take it. The reverbations will probably go on for a while. Sending much love your way. Because knowing something and feeling something are two different things.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear this. I lost my cousin over New Years and it's one of the hardest things I have gone through. I know what you mean by everyone dealing with it in their own way. Each member of my family seems to be handling it differently, some the pain is still very evident. There is nothing wrong with your way. Take your time. Like I said to a few people, "Life comes first."

  6. JJ I've learned many things reading your blog & one thing is that you, like me, wear your heart on your sleeve so I have no doubt that she knew how much you cared!!
    I lost my friend four years ago & I still miss her terribly but she still lives alive and strong in my mind. I get solace from knowing that I am a better person for having known her.
    I am very sorry JJ for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you. xxx Kath...take care!!

  13. Death, is in my opinion, life's dirty little trick on the living. I don't care what any one's philosophy is about it being a new adventure, the after life being better than this life, what ever. Those of us left behind hurt. Loosing people hurts. I hope your memories bring solace and time brings peace.
