Awww, that is so sad. I don't know what I would do in a situation like that. The pain must be unimaginable :(

 Yes I don't know how she is coping and I do understand her need to hold on to the man she has loved . they have supported each other raised their children who are still young and at home. Shes pretty tough, but I also know she is very fragile as we all are. Even when we are wearing our tough stuff faces!!

Some people amaze me with how resilient they are, real troopers.

It's still early, and love is very powerful. You never know, he may well pull through at anytime. From weakness we find strength and through others we find not only strength but courage, kindness and the will to be all we can be.
I may not be that religious anymore, but I have witnessed some wonders that cannot really be explained. Faith is a powerful thing.

Yes it is and I have witnessed the same ! We can never give up on what we believe unless we have exhausted every avenue available. Then we must rely on faith. do what we can do ourselves then believe it with all ouer hearts!!

The problem is that sometimes the toughness is merely on the surface; sometimes one can be tough as long as there is something to keep you occupied, but as soon as it is all over, and you have nothing more to occupy you, that is when you fall apart.

It is very dangerous just to look at the surface as suggest that the person is able to cope.

You see, I was pushed into religion, my dads side of the family is very religious, well considering my grandad was a deacon or something and my uncle is a priest it was bound to happen. I went to a roman catholic school, both primary and secondary, which would constantly ram down your throat religious studies. However I did used to go to church with my parents, I enjoyed it for a while, but then something happened, it all lost it's glow to me. I still respect it, it's just not for me anymore.

Yes I was brought up Babtist , then I went to a pentecostal and now I am a member of the LDS church and have been for for 14 or 15 years now. I have been inactive for over a year now, as I have had to deal with family issues and health, getting it back!! Seemed overwhelming teaching preschool all day 5 days aweek to 34 kids and then having sunday teaching primary at church for small groups of children... I love it it was my calling, but I was and am worn out and need ed some major me time. I am still very much a believer in God and will always be. Right now I need to be a believer in myself and that has been difficult after many years of not believing in me. I got so lost somewhere alondg the lines.

Yeah, my parents do a lot for the kids at their church, they go to a Evangelica church, they didn't like how boring roman catholics were.

If they're not doing sunday school then they are usually leading the service. It's what they love, and I'm glad they have it, I don't think they would be as happy if they didn't have their faith.

But you definitely need some you time  :)

You can still be devoted even if you don't go to church, that's how I see it. After all, the church is not just a building, it's the people.

I'm not a critic really. If I like something then I like it and if I don't I don't. I'm sure I could have thought of something easier and shorter to say but I couldn't......obviously.....doh....... I'll tell you what, I'll give them another proper read tomorrow and let you know. That's because it's nearing home time and I need to get changed. But will chat tomorrow hun. Take care and have a good day. Seems a bit weird wishing you a good day as it's night time here, I know it, I'm gonna forget it soon......damn [:X]

I sometimes get really confused with the keyboards. We have different types at work....the kind that is split down the middle of the keys......I know great technical term used......I don't care........leave I be........anyway, I'm usually having to go back on myself and delete wrong words or letters, sometimes both, sometimes none. You get the picture.......actually I just lost myself.......damn

Cool, I'm glad you could follow that, unfortunately I have no idea myself. Now that has happened to me a few times, it's like part of my brain shuts down and another part takes over. It sometimes leaves me confused but other times leaves me with a poem :)

Thank you Karen [:X]

I came up with a new one a few nights ago, it's on my laptop at home. I haven't read it yet. But I do know it's not a lovely one, I was feeling low when I wrote it.
