Sadness

Jul 09, 2015 12:48 PM

I got a call from my Best Friend this morning that her Sister passed away this morning. I'm broken-hearted for her and her family. Her Mom is 98 years old and had been watching her daughter die slowly and painfully for the last 10 weeks. I spent the entire morning with her and her Mom. She said it was a big help. I hope so. Just took my first dose of meds. When I left there I was in such a sweat, my face beet red and my throat tightening that I thought I was going to pass out. I'm in the a/c, got my BP down and am not sweating any more. Ill be there by my friend's side every moment she needs me there. Just pray for me that I can hold up because I'll need to skip a lot of meds. I pray you are all having a peaceful day with less or as little pain as possible. Hugs to you all. Say I love you to someone today, life is too short and it's not said nearly enough. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. 💕🙏🏻🌺

AlwayZ , my heart breaks for you and your friend and her family. I'm praying God gives you strength and compassion for your friends family, and may He make your upcoming days as pain free as possible. He will comfort the mother as no one else can!

When my mother was going in and out of the hospital so sick, my Pawpaw cried that he'd buried his wife and he just couldn't bear burying his child. He died 4 months before she did. It was one of my hardest years ever! But God's grace got me through it, and He will get you and your friends family through this. (((Hugs)))!🙏🌼

Thanks Flaposy, your words, as always are very comforting to me. I'm praying to God that I can remain strong and stand firm by my friend's side and not have to think about myself. You're a special lady and I can't thank you enough for your prayers.
Oregon, thank you as well, I appreciate your thoughts coming my way.
I know that we ALL have to go through things like this and I'd have to be on my own death bed to not be at my friend's side when she needs me the most. I will be there through the entire process no matter what and I know that God will give me the strength to do it. ❤️💕🙏🏻

Sorry Alwayz to hear about yoUr pain and the pain of your friends. Contrary to what we are use to, death is really no natural. We were never meant to die. If it were not for the sins of our first parents , this would never have happened. It is so sad to see so many people in despair. I like to keep in mind the scripture at revelation 21:3,4 where it talks about the tent of God being with mankind, so on the earth. It talks about a time when there will be no more sickness and dying. No more tears from our eyes and the former things will not even be recalled to us. I also like the scripture At John 5:28,29 where it talks about Jesus said they would listen to his voice when he calls them out of their memorial tombs to a ressurection. I am not quoting but summerizing. These are comforting to me at times like these. I don't think they are quite as comforting to a the person who just lost their loved one. The pain at present may be too much, that their anger can be misplaced at God for all the suffering. I am not saying this is the case with your friend. But they may find these comforting a little later. In the end, I hope that I have lent some comfort to you. I want you to know that I care about how you feel and that I think you sacrificing of your time and self is commendable and shows goodness which is a fruitage of God's spirit. Be careful though as you give of yourself, to take care of yourself. The more you take care of yourself, the more time you can give. So maybe you can bring the most important pills. You are a good person Alwayz. I like you a lot. Thanks for being in here.

Thank you so very much Profiler. You have touched my heart deeply. I will be sure to take care of myself as best I can. I have to be strong and be there for my friend. I like you a lot, too, Profiler. I appreciate how much it means to you that I'm part of the group.💕
