Sharing from Friends and StillStandingMag.com

March 11, 2016

One of my dear friends shared a brilliant article with me from Still Standing Magazine. It expressed my own feelings of the grieving process so perfectly, I read it multiple times. 

I ended up further exploring the website and found 2 articles that perfectly articulate what I am going through and how I feel.  I have also signed up for their mailing list.  I can’t have too many bereavement resources right now. Keep them coming!!

I wish I had read the Dear Newly Bereaved Parent article a few weeks ago. However, better late than never.   


The second article was sent to me by my compassionate friend. Haven’t seen her in years, but time and distance have no bearing on friendship during grieving.  Thank you Alison for sharing I Just Can’t Survive This.  

 This article “I Just Can’t Survive This” didn’t speak to me, it screamed at me. So much so that I read it 4 times. And have bookmarked it. 

I can’t just survive Anthony’s death. I need to thrive. I have to find compassion and regain a balance and purpose. 

Anthony was my firstborn, the love of my life, and I have to continue my mission on Earth now that his has ended. 

I have to thrive. One day. Maybe. I hope. 

On another subject, it’s throwback Thursday. Thank you to my darling friend Homey for texting me this picture I had used in a Christmas card many years ago. 

Happier times.

I miss my Anthony. Look at that beautiful smile he had. He and his brothers were my Three Musketeers.  I want one more hour with him. Just one.
