Jaspersmom, just spending a few minutes, reading two of your threads. What a hard, hard year you've endured!
Thank you for the very dear post you recently wrote me after I was swamped by an unexpected onslaught of grief. Your post held such kind and loving words and I'm sorry it's taken me some time to return to the forum since my last post. But I very much appreciated your writing to me and it means a lot. I didn't realize You're not far past the year mark with PT. Those anniversaries are very taxing. I am thankful that you know in your knower why she departed and that this certainty has eased the perplexity and hurt of that one piece of things. The ties that bind, though, those endure and our hearts remain utterly knit with theirs. I wish grief wasn't so harsh and long lasting. I hope this year that abundant comfort will meet with your heart and that the pangs will ease more and more. My mom used to say that phrase, "not big as a minute." Such a sweet descriptor for your beloved girl! Sending big hugs and may much care and encouragement surround you!
