Sorry for your loss. Hang in there.
This is a discussion on I'm back, but different within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Glad to meet you! From a new guy in Michigan....
Glad to meet you! From a new guy in Michigan.
Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
Sorry for your loss. Hang in there.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
My thoughts are with you and your family. Dont give up Tala when you dont feel as if you can carry your burdens anymore lean on christ for he will bear the burden and lead you through this dark time.

Welcome back, I hope the new year treats you better than the old
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
My condolences on the loss of your Mom. Sounds like you have had a tough year but you have already proven that you are a strong person and you will do fine.
Welcome back Tala. My condolences. It will get better, but you will still miss her some times.
Prayers on the way.
Sorry for the loss of your Mother. Try to get over the jealousy of your sister being pregnant. Be the best aunt you can be. There will be times in your neice's/nephew's life that you might be closer to them than they are to their parents. Keep your head up. You never know what God has in store for you! One day you might want to consider adoption. There is a lot more to being a parent than just the biological part.
Welcome back Tala, sorry for your loss. I know everyone says it but, it will get easier with time. Been there myself, God Bless and visit here when you need to clear your head and be with friends.

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss and you have my deepest condolences. It's hard to move on sometimes but change can also be a good thing if it's made by controlled decisions. The news regarding your mother put a lump in my throat and brought back the day I found out my mother had passed.. Something about the loss of the person that actually brought you into the world I guess.Anyway, glad you're back and to hear you're moving forward. Take care of yourself, and congrats on the new job and school. Best of luck to you.

Welcome back, Tala. I look forward to reading your posts.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
This forum is a place where many people feel to be among friends and at home. I am glad you have made your way back after going through such a harsh year. I am very sorry to hear the news of your mother's passing. No doubt you do feel like a different person. It's been one hell of an ordeal for anyone to go through. Hopefully you'll be able to re-group, re-focus and get back on track soon. Let us know if we can help.
Don't forget, you have a huge family here who are pulling for ya and glad to see you back.

Welcome back and condolences for your mother.

Odd maybe for some people...... but thru the years ..... my mother and I talked at least on the phone 1-2 times every day. We liked to share jokes , weird or funny things that happened, etc. It was not unusual for me to hear a good joke, and think ... she's got to hear this one, and call her and tell her the joke. After she died, I found myself reaching for the phone several times ........ then remembering again she was no longer there. It took 3 yrs before the "habit" of doing that really went away. But occassionally, without thinking..... I catch myself do it.
When a parent leaves us, it's more difficult in my opinion, because we think they will always be there ... as they always have been. And afterall, who knows more about our life in total than them. We never have to "explain". But, it takes a while to realize.... they never leave our thoughts..... and are still with us.
Adopt. One of the most rewarding things you can do , and you develop the same close bonds. Father or mother hood ... isn't biological, it's an unconditional committment to their care, well -being, fighting thru the tough times, enjoying the good ones, helping them up when they need it, creating many memories & experiences , knowing what it's like when someone really cares .... and helping them grow into adults..... who can evenutally help push your wheel chair.
