Death & Dying Message Board

Death & Dying Board Index

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"]I feel compelled to tell you this....I am the Mother to six kids. I can tell you that those kids need an outlet to express their emotions without judgement. If they feel hate, then they should be allowed to feel hate. If they are happy then let them be happy. Sometimes kids need help in figuring out why they feel the way they feel-just like we do! Is your daughter doing anything to preserve her memory, if she did pass away? A video diary is a nice way to communicate her ups and downs to them. I know it sounds like it would be a grueling task to sit down and write out all the answers a daughter would ask-but she should do it while she is healthy. Tell her not to wait!!! I'm going to start one. I think everyone should do that for their kids and grandkids. That way you can tell them stories of your childhood, who your first loves were, and how happy you were the day they were born. We should pay tribute to our own life, by telling our story! What a great way to help people heal after we go to be with Jesus!
I'm only 37 and have lost 5 friends to cancer, both grandmas to cancer, a 44 year old Aunt(this past summer) to ovarian cancer, and I watched my step father(65) die on a gurney as I ran next to it(with my 3 little girls). He had a massive heart attack 2 years ago, 3 days before Christmas. My Father-in-law passed away this past fall of many different things. My sanity has only been made possible by my belief in them all being with Jesus. I also don't want my kids to feel like I can't cope. They play off of me, and I want them to be OK with it. So far so good! They seem to keep moving right along. I think life is soooo short, we don't have time to feel sorry for the people who have passed away-they're all in a better place! They wouldn't want you to spend the rest of your life grieving. They need us to LIVE, because they can't! Living is not crying everyday, or thinking about death. It's making new memories with the people we love and who are still here. Your granddaughters need you! They will look to you for strength. You don't have to be super human and have no emotions-but you do need to teach them how they can keep living even when times are tough. They also need to know it is OK to be happy.
You sound like a wonderful woman and I think your daughter and grandkids are lucky to have you. Don't be afraid to reach out to your community if you need some help thru these tough times. I will pray for God to give you the strength and wisdom to give your family what they need right now. I will also pray that your daughter and parents find healing.:angel:God Bless![/COLOR][/FONT]
