Glad to be spending easter with my girl absolutely!

If I could, though...

I'd love a HUGE gathering... like the people that were at family reunions when I was a kid, and people no longer in my life but who I still think about from time to time hoping they are happy. The current group of unfortunate souls I have leeched onto!! lol!!!

My parents, bro and sister...
most of all them..

and Tom Cruise for the surprise... hey! he's single, I"m single! Why not??? lol..

...this is my first Easter without my mom. I remember growing up, she would never let me or my sisters do anything from 12 - 3 pm on Good Friday...it was a religious ritual for us to be quiet and remember what this holiday is really all about...Today I found myself thinking of her through those three hours...I don't have my kids on Easter this year and my family isn't around...I am so grateful that my LSCN friends have included me in their Easter plans
Anyway, I got this story via email today and it made me smile...I thought it would be inspiration for others who may be wishing they could see someone they miss this Easter.

When Will I Stop Hurting?

"I lost a loved one nearly a year ago. When will I stop hurting?"

The question was simple but difficult to answer.

She was challenging me. I wanted to help her, but I knew that only she
could answer that question.

Whenever someone writes to tell me about a death, I always talk about the
difficult months ahead. I refer to it as a "Year of Firsts." The first
holiday, birthday, anniversary, summer picnic or other personal event
without that loved one.

Then there are those little things you never really paid attention to
before, but now find a gaping hole right in the middle of your day. Like
the time they woke up each morning, how they had their coffee, the sound
the door made around dinner time when they arrived home and the way they
said "hello."

But there was something about this message today that made me stop and
really think about what I needed to say.

Oddly, I decided that the pain she was feeling was a good thing, but I
wasn't sure she wanted to know that.

Here is exactly what I wrote to her:

When will you stop hurting? That is a measure of the love you shared and
how does one measure love?
By remembering them long after they are gone.

"Memories" are the shadows of a life well lived that remain long after the
light of their being has gone out. May you never forget.

"Pain" is the echo of remembering those special moments when all the world
belonged to the both of you. The day will come when the pain of remembering
turns into understanding the privilege of ever having them in your life at
all.
Remembering will be a joy.

Although the pain is great at times you are reminded still, how very much
you loved and were loved.

May the rest of your life be a reflection of that love and when your time
comes may your passing cast long shadows for all who loved you, too.
