The rest of my life

Permalink Word Count: 310 Tags: Grief

As you may or may not have noticed, all of my old content here has been removed.  Just over a month ago, a traumatic event happened in my life - the passing away of my mother due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).  As some of you know, I was her caregiver for the past six years since the first diagnosis of COPD.  This has caused many ups-and-downs in my life.  This loss has left a gaping hole in by existence - one that I am still in the process of recovering from.

As a result of all of this recent turmoil in my life, I have felt that it would be better to just start over and get a fresh perspective on everything - both in real life and in my online world. The road will be tough and long, but I feel that I will be better once I work my way through my grief and loneliness.

I feel that a fitting quote is one that I included with my sympathy thank you cards:

Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, To sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We are all meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay.

Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know, For some the journey’s quicker, For some the journey’s slow.

But when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord.

As I follow the new pathways of life, I am a changed person.  So much in my life has changed considerably in the past month and a half.  I would like to thank you for your thoughts and prayers and keep praying that I find the right path to follow.
