Their time is ALWAYS too short pacanis. Seems a few of us are feeling that the last few months. Glad its an easy fix.

vitauta, I've not been online for a bit, I'm so glad your mom has improved. Its scary. Prayers and thoughts going up for you.

I'm going to have a nap. I'm tired physically and emotionally, it was a tough day at work today.

I know how you feel, Alix... being tired physically and emotionally. I can't sleep or relax. So, I cook... that relaxes me.

VB, wanna grab a virtual cup of tea and share your troubles? A burden shared is a burden lifted. We need a thread like that.

My Grandma passed away yesterday. My family wants me to come home, but my eyes are so swollen from crying, i can't even see.

Losing a Grandma is even harder than losing a parent, in a way. Grandmas have a special place in our hearts that can never be filled again by any other person.

My condolences, VB. Remember all of those wonderful memories of your Grandma.

My best wishes to you and yours.

So very sorry, VB. My heartfelt sympathies. Take some time to collect yourself.

My Grandma was the most important person in my world, and losing her was devastating. Hugs to you.

You won't be the only one with swollen eyes. You need to cry. It is the first stage of grief. And you need to return home so that you can receive the comfort you need, and can only get from family members.

Just try to keep remembering that God put your grandmother here with a purpose in mind. She fulfilled God wishes and now he wants her to come home, just like your family wants you at their side. They need to reach out to you and share their grief with you. This is your chance to share your memories of your grandmother and to say goodby to her.

A nice cold cloth will reduce the swelling. And time will reduce the pain you are feeling. But you will never forget her. Grandmothers always have a special place in our hearts.

When my daughter died, I gathered her five children to me. Her youngest one was only an infant and doesn't remeber her mother. But as her grandmother, I am now able to pass on good memories to her. Just like your family wants to share theirs with you. Go to your family and let them embrace you with love.
