Overwhelmed and Thankful


I am overwhelmed with sadness for losing my best friend, my husband. Overwhelmed with how I am to carry on. But thankful for the awesome children and grandchildren and family and friends that will help me get thru this. I am overwhelmed with the love and just knowing that I am not alone. I am thankful for a God who gives me so much and overwhelmed with wondering why He needed Jay right now. As I look around me all I see is love and sincere people who Jay has touched and I am thankful that I got to have him with me for a while to show me how to live life to the fullest. Knowing that I am not alone gives me comfort and knowing that I will see him again gives me joy.

Hi Pam,
I'm sure you would think I was a stalker if you could see how many times I have checked to see if you had posted. (can't believe it's been 4 hours) anyway I'm glad you have people who love you around and there are a bunch of us out here that are waiting for our turn. I'm sure you are overwhelmed enough without everyone at once...
See you tomorrow' I'm praying for all of you,
Let me know when it is my turn..

Goode Evening Pam,
It seems that we may know each other as we pass by daily in our blogs... chatting, laughing & carrying on, but not to often you hear of a loss... and looking back just a few days ago he was bringing you roses... oh, how each moment passes us by. I want you to know that God has His Out-Stretched Arms around you & your family during this time of grief. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers... oh how wonderful it is to know our prayers can touch God's children all over the world. Take care & look toward Heaven. With gracious love, Pamela
