Dear Cathy,
Of course you are in my thoughts and prayers, and who tells you about a time schedule? We all need the time we need for mourning and letting go, everybody has got a different length of time, which does in no way affect the sincerity of the love felt for the loved one who has gone into heaven. Don't be too strict with yourself, your husband does not want you to torment yourself, by describing yourself as half-crazy. As a matter of fact, you physically miss your second half and soul mate, so all you are going through is normal and you need it for the healing. Prayers winding up for you, my dear friend, lots of love, xxx Edda

Dear Cathy,
A very short interim reply for now, since I have got not only the impression but the wish keep in touch with you ... plus had the impression that our messages exchanged get longer and much more into 'detail', to put it thus.

I feel that speaking about our innermost fears and thoughts is part of our privacy, i.e. in a way it needs to be protected ... which is why I shall send you a 'proper' answer by e-mail. Guess this will be fine for you.

Big hugs from here, get back to you in a short while,
xxx Edda

Good morning, ((((Cathy)))),
I am sitting here after having read your lovely message that brought tears to my eyes, merely because it touched me so very much to read that I have managed to offer you a little comfort. Just please feel ((((hugged)))) for that one. And don't be afraid of what the future brings. We shall never forget our loved ones, that much is sure, and they will always have their safe places in our hearts, but the pain will gradually vanish. And this, my dear friend, is not only a hope I want to give you, it is real. God helps us through this all and takes this grief away to save all our energies for the pure love itself; from what we all know, love is immortal. I hope you will have a good new day, walk slowly but continuously, and if you feel like stumbling, just get back to me, I shall gladly walk besides you for as long as you need my friendship. Be blessed, my friend, take care, hugs, xxx Edda

Cathy, you will manage
to gather that strength, even though you cannot possibly imagine how this could happen. From your present standpoint, I can understand your doubts, but every single day you hold on will gradually move you further. Until one day, you will wake up with nothing but love left in your heart, along with thankfulness for having had your husband and having known what that true love is for you. And something strange happens when you are at that point. All of a sudden, you can actually feel the presence of your loved one, an you know that through precisely the love you have for each other, he will always be close to you. Please feel hugged, ((((Cathy)))). Your friend xxx Edda

Dear Cathy,
I am so very sorry for what you have to go through at present, and I always wish that I was able to take a bit of your pain away. But I have learned that myself, every one of us actually has to walk this valley of pain and despair to be able to one day arrive at the mountain of hope. If we do not do this, the result is stagnation, and how are we supposed to climb out of this dark if we remain in that stagnation. I wish I could have told you that the time won't be long, and I am truly sorry if I worried or scared you. What I meant to express was merely the fact that however long your own grief will hurt you, there will always be friends around to see you through this, plus the best friend of all for each of us, God himself. If you feel like talking, Cathy, just drop me a line. And be blessed, my friend, I know that it is not going to be easy, but as you said yourself, take one day at a time, those small steps you make will help you arrive. Be blessed, my friend, hugs, xxx Edda
