Awww Elf...I miss you too.

I just felt like a fish out of water without Paul. I have never in 52 years been in his sisters homes without him. It was so hard to be there. Each day I would wake up and say " I want to go home" So I did..9 days early.

Oh, Marge, so sorry to hear you cut your trip short because of your discomfort. You have been through so much these past few years. It will get better with time. You will never forget your loved ones but you will heal and go on. You have many friends here at DC who support you and love you and are praying for you.

Dove, I read about your going away and was glad.
It's good to get out, test the waters.
But, I'm also glad you know yourself and like yourself enough to know when enough is enough.
No place like home, no matter what that means.

Welcome Home.

I'm wondering how Katie made out. I bet it was a long and turbulant day for her.
Will post a new thread, I think.

I have been having dreams of looking for Paul. the last 3 he was in Vietnam and hasn't written to me for 7 or 8 months. I am then there looking for him. They tell me he has already left for the States...I wonder if this is connected to my being in his home town with his sisters and he wasn't there???

Probably.

Marge, don't look so hard for him. He is right there with you. Just check your right shoulder......... (those we love the most never really leave us. sometimes we just need to be quiet to hear them). Today would have been my dear Stan's 74th birthday. Instead, he has been gone for more than 25 years. But he is never really very far away. I just can't touch him...

Go easy on yourself. and I understand your need to go/be home. Next time it will be a bit easier. We are all with you, sweetie.

sending you lots of hugs.

oh dove, you break my heart. also you make me feel better to know you dream of your husband as i do.

sometimes as i just wake up, i reach out to him on his side of the bed and for just an instant it is real.

i haven't been able to sleep in the middle or on his side of the bed and it has been twelve years. in many ways, i am glad memories of him are so fresh. he was the love of my life and i miss him.

babe

I have had several dreams about him backing up when I reach for a hug..Kevin was out at the shooting range and was wishing his dad could see how well he was shooting. That night in his dream he could see dad and would start running towards him. Paul would disappear every time. He said he woke up sobbing. Do you think this is Paul's way of saying " It's time to let go?"

No... he will never be far from you, you just can't touch him. Maybe that's what he's saying. Why don't you ask him?

sending all of you hugs, Marge.
