From My Heart

Blog Posted:2/20/2010 8:02:00 AM
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Thank you all so much for your kind and caring words.&nbsp; They mean more to me than words can express.&nbsp; They have helped to fill this large empty space that I am left with now that my parents have been called home.&nbsp; I miss them and even at 47 I still need them, especially now when I feel more like 7.<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I feel blessed to have come to know you all.&nbsp; I am touched by all the the beauty of your hearts through all that you share and I am slowly making my way back home.&nbsp; This site is filled with so many wonderful poets that so freely give their love to help uphold one another in times of need.&nbsp; I have always thought of it as band of Angels that God has led me to and for that I am eternally grateful.&nbsp; With all of my love, Robin<br>

    They are with our Lord now Robin. They have no more pain or sorrow. He will care for them and they will be there waiting for the day you all will be together again in Heaven my friend. I know you will miss them and need them. I don't think we ever stop missing and needing them until the day we rejoice in being together again in Heaven. Keep your faith my friend and be happy for them that they no longer are suffering. It takes time for us to realize that it is the Lords will that we all return home to him again one day. He only lends us to this earth a short time. Only when we except this do we start to heal the pain in losing our love ones. My prayers are with you as you progress through this sad time in your life my friend. Love and blessings to you and yours always, Carol

    You've had to deal with so much grief in the past year, Robin. It's sad to think of your tender heart struggling right now, but many Soupers are sending prayers your way. We'll always be here for you. I'll never forget how the family here helped me through my father's death. They were a Godsend. Writing again might help to alleviate some of your sadness. In the meantime, prayers continue. Much love always, Carolyn
