Now THATS What I'm talking about…

Oh, my.

What a way to wake up and start your day. The outpouring of support, understanding and encouragement is beyond measure.

Thank you Amy, Theresa, Margie, Joy, and everyone else for SEEING me. Seeing me as a mother of loss that is hurting, that needs support, to be listened to, understood, have her hand held, allowed to cry and be herself.

Thank you for accepting me as me and for understanding what I was saying – even if you dont agree. Thank you for understnading blog etiquette, the purpose of blogging, what this blog means to me.

Thank you for your kind words. Most of all thank you for  not admonishing me for my feelings, calling me names, or telling me that my responsiblity was to greater good first and myself second.

From yesterdays post quote:

“The friend
who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can
stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not
knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.”
– Henri Nouwen

Just thank you.

7 Thoughts.

  1. When I started my blog, I had no idea where it would take me. Now sadly I am now trapped by it. So I understand. I realize that my words touch emotions, thoughts, and deep nerves. It is in that I am trapped. It has become my political stand. Unfortunately I can’t be who I truly am on it. Since I have politicians reading it, I can’t be too angry, emotional, thoughtless or disregarding others. So I do get it.

  2. You know I have been reading all this, I am in shock at how your original message caused such a reaction for so many. As a first mom who is coming to the realization that acceptance is what I can hope for and healing is out of reach, reguardless of reunion (a realization that came from lots of personal observation and lots of struggling within myself and NOT because of anything anyone else said or wrote) agree with you completely. I am in shock that you have been so berated for writing your feelings and for what you see happening everyday. Yes you have a unique position having had the opportunity of this blog and Ehbabes, however, I do not believe that takes away your right to write or post honestly about what you see and feel. Say what you need to say, feel what you need to feel, whenever you want, don’t let anyone censor that. *We let someone take away our rights once, didn’t we (EH?) let’s not do that again*
    Luv ya bunches! Your amazing!

  3. Kristy – Thanks for your kind words. Coming from a fellow EH mother of loss, they mean alot to me. You know, for you, for me, for others perhaps acceptance = healing, you know?

  4. Suz, I’m sorry I didn’t get here sooner. Just when I think the truth is getting out to people, someone wants to shut you up or make them tell your truth as THEY think you should. BULLSHIT. Those who want to play ostrich must not be all that healed for such close-minded behavior seems dysfuntcional to me. What the heck to I know? I love you the way you are. All those people who read your blog owe you a debt of gratitude for telling it like it REALLY is. I stand by you regardless if I agree with you. It’s super easy when your friends feel exactly the same. The test comes from reading something that sometimes makes me uncomfortable but recognizing the value. Keep being you, whomever you want to be. Love you much, Rebecca

  5. “or telling me that my responsiblity was to greater good first and myself second.”
    Total crazy talk about serving the greater good! Being your truest self is serving the greatest good (imo). YOU are a beauty.

  6. There’s nothing worse than a know it all. Someone who pretends to have all the answers, insults those of us who don’t find their way effective….. all the while making their LIVING off of our grief is no professional. To them I would say PISS. OFF.
    Love you Suz.
