Thank you !

In his comment on my Bereavement blog, 'M' wrote "I am just a random reader of your blog, so my words may not be that important". I want to say that the words of all my readers are important. You never know who will let a shaft of light into your darkness.

In writing "He let you go, and that is the greatest love of all", 'M' has reminded me of something I knew, but had overlooked for more than 20 years. Thank you. You have helped me to see where I need to go next. Now that I understand better the full extent of Michael's love, I need to forgive him for not being able to communicate that to me; and also myself for not being able to recognise it. Then perhaps we shall indeed have reached the same destination.

I was doubtful about sharing such private pain on my blog, thinking it might discourage people from reading. But enough of you have read and commented to make it meaningful, and it has helped me enormously. I do thank all of you most sincerely. (And it's so much cheaper than going to a counsellor!)

I am glad you found solace from sharing your grief, Judith. It was a courageous thing to do.
I am fairly new to "blogging" and am continually surprised and delighted by the kindness and friendliness of the community.

Hi, I am Steffi. You should not be doubtful about blogging about personal griefs and hurts. I did that some time back and it helped, cause I found the strength to face my problems.

God bless! :)
Merry Christmas and wishing you a Happy New Year.

Hi Judith, blogs are indeed cheap therapy; sometimes we just need to say things and it is immaterial who hears or responds. As a telephone counsellor I get this often, the caller doesn't want answers, they just want to tell their story. It helps get clarity and perspective. One of the nice things I have found about blogging is that you meet so many nice people who not only listen to your story but care as well.
