Hi


I'm still feeling the love and the hugs and the prayers. You're my angels!

Just dropping in with a little update.....I'm doing ok.....but my emotions are on a roller coaster....I never know when it'll hit me. I bawl my eyes out every time I read a comment here....but I love it....it's so heartwarming. I'm going to pop in every now and then and say a little something. I want to write about my feelings to get them out and lessen them to some extent and I'm going to start reading you guys again. I need to laugh.

I've got a lot of business to take care of as a result of hub's passing, but I'm getting thru it...I've got a great support system of real and cyber friends to help me and love me through it.

I miss him. ;-(
and one day I'll write the whole story....it's in me but my heart is hurting too much to do it right now.

Love all of you.


Peace

We are here for you. Hugs and love.

Jeff B said...

Odat, I keep wanting to say just the right thing to you, but I'm not sure what it is. I remember when my dad passed away last July, other people had the same difficulty. I told them the words didn't matter; just hearing their voice, or seeing their face was all I needed sometimes.

So I don't have any big flowery speech to offer now, but please know you're in my thoughts..

Love ya girl.

Oswegan said...

I am so sorry. I don't really know what to say. I just wish I had been here sooner to support you.

God bless you and your family.

Penelope Anne said...

Tears are the cleanser of the soul, so I was told I should always let them flow forth. And one day, when you are ready the story shall be told.
We are here for you.

Claudia said...

Whenever I cried, my grandmother would say, Let it out. It cleans your eyes and makes them shine.

Let it out.

So glad to hear you have great support. And we are not going anywhere.

Patti said...

I am also glad you have friends around you, in addition to all of us cyber buddies.

And like Casdok said, we are not going anywhere.

Miss you and hugs.

Open Grove Claudia said...

Of course you miss him. I miss him and I didn't know him. ;)

But love never goes away - and the kind of love you have for this man can transcend even death. He is there for you Odat. A heart as strong and brave as yours knows that intuitively.

In the meantime, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sarge Charlie said...

Hi Miss Odat, just so you know I hope I do not make you cry but I did a Thursday special for you. Big HUGS

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Thought you could use another hug honey, so here I am. Take care of yourself and know that you are in my prayers. :)

Sarge Charlie said...

I am so happy I picked a good song for you, the tears are ok.

trying said...

I hope you are able to find comfort in your memories and love from your friends. (((((HUGS))))))

Ralph said...

Odat, we so feel for you. We think of you a lot, and we feel bad. You are a wonderful flogger and an inspiration. I wish we could inspire you to feel better. Alas, we can not. Please remember that we hope that time can heal your wounds, but fear that time alone is not enough. At this grievous time, please know that all of us care for you so much. I hope that you can again laugh and enjoy. You make the bloggosphere so much fun. Hope to see you again for Mondays, Fridays, Spud and the all the wonderfully wry observations you provide. Hope and prayers are for you.

Roger said...

(((Hugs))) Odat hang in there! Much love!!

Julie said...

Continued hugs and prayers my dear.

Just remember that writing is almost as cleansing as crying.

Michael C said...

Oh Odat, I didn't realize that was what had happened. I am sorry. You hang in there and know we are here!!!

Flag Gazer said...

God Bless You - and give you the strenght for this time. You have our sympathies and concern and thoughts and prayers. Be good to you first.

Szarek(Will) said...

Take your time...We understand...

Meloncutter said...

I don't do this very often, but....

{{{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}}}}}

You always have my friendship to lean on. My thoughts, my prayers and if you need to call and scream at someone I will give you my number. If I can help, let me know. You are a good friend even though we may never meet, I think of you as one of my best friends.

Hang in there, be strong, and know that you will get through this and be OK.

Later Y'all.

Mike M said...

All the love to you. Your in my prayers.

Nosjunkie said...

You sould write about what you feel. I started diaries... I wrote everything it didnt have to be in any order or well writen just put it down as it came.
I never read them and I only recently found that I had come far enough to let go of it and burnt them.
Your going to be okay hunny really you are so dont worry bout that right now... just do it and deal with it your way

buffalodickdy said...

Take all the time you need- we certainly understand...

Paul said...

Odat I am here for you. Take your time and deal with your situation. :-)

Matt-Man said...

Loves to you too Odat. Peace to you as well. Cheers Buddy!!

~Fathairybastard~ said...

Isn't it amazing, the sort of folks you can get to know and love here on the blogs? I came over from Sarge's place to give you a big hug. I hope everything steadily gets better in time. I can tell from these comments that you're deeply loved by a lot of folks. There's another hug.

the teach said...

Odat, I know it must be hard but I'm thinking of you...you're in my heart. Love, maryt :)

Loving Annie said...

Oh Odat, honey, of course you're going to be on a roller coaster !

It's all so new, and there is so much to do, and feel, and, of course you miss him.... ((hugs))

I'm glad you have so much love and help surrounding you, both in real life and here on the blogs.

Writing out what you feel is good -all of it...

With loving empathy. Thinking of you.

-TNChick- said...

Oh my... I can not even begin to imagine how you feel nor do I want to pretend I know. I've been married 14 years to my highschool sweetheart and I just can't imagine...

What I do know is that God will be with you. I will pray for you during this time. I hope you find peace, comfort and feel love during this time. Even tho I don't know you - my heart hurts for you. Hugs from Tennessee.

Mel's Mom said...

Just wanted to say I am sorry for your loss. (hugs)

Mimi Lenox said...

You know we're here.
One day at a time, Odat.

You're doing great.....

Christy said...

The fact you got online and posted anything at all is amazing. Truly. One breath, one step, one day at a time.

Echomouse said...

Crying is good. I know it can be draining but it's better to let it out than hold it in.

We're here for you {{Hug}} Just be good to yourself and don't hesitate to accept help when it's offered.

Linda said...

Hi Odat,

I came by via Sarge Charlie's post which I thought was just such a sweet thing for him to do. I know he does a Thursday post for you every week so that has got to make you one very special person because if Sarge Charlie is doing a weekly post for you then you've got to be quite the lady!

Take care and take your time with your healing. I was quite pleased to see that you felt up to blogging already; I'm sure it was tough but I'm sure it is also helpful.

Hang in there!

Linda

M@ said...

My condolences, ODAT.

Amazing Gracie said...

When I first got the blogging bug, I was truly amazed at the sense of community that exists. People really care and there is such a deep feeling of belonging.
I was widowed years ago and can tell you there is no right or wrong way to grieve. My faith sustained me and there is a verse in the OT that says that God keeps our tears in a bottle. That created a visual for me that has never left me.
May comfort, mercies and many blessings be yours.
~~~Blessings~~~

Palm Springs Savant said...

Odat- so glad we can all be here for you. I've kept you in my thoughts and prayers. The days ahead will be difficult, but with each day you will get stronger.

mel said...

I'm praying for you!!!

Akelamalu said...

I'm so sorry to hear this, I didn't know until today as I haven't been by since last Friday.

Please accept my condolences, much love and Reiki. May your pain be eased and the light shine again soon for you. x

Sarge Charlie said...

We are getting ready for a week on a big boat, just wanted to give you a hug before I left.

crazy working mom said...

When we get ready to talk, Odat we will be here to listen.

♥ to you.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Your husband must have been a truly amazing man to be with you because you are incredibly special.

Love is energy and energy cannot cease to be. It simply changes its form, so love never ends.

Wherever you see beauty in the world, that will be his love showing itself to you again and again. I don't know a lot of things, but I know that this is so.

Sanni said...

Hang in there as best you can, Odat! You´re in our thoughts and prayers - we´ll always be here ♥
