When You Can't Think Of Anything To Say...


Post a picture of your [sheep].  

I'd like to say I'm okay.  But I'm not.  But I am I guess, really.  See?  Friends shouldn't let friends blog incoherently, so I'm just going to stick to posting a picture of Blossom and try hitting my "re-set" button one more time.  

Stupid button.  

Why don't these things ever work.

You are never alone. I wish I could give you more than words to ease your heartache.

I wished that words would make you feel better because I would say them. But I know they will not. Just know that you are not alone. You have us goofy blog buddies!

I lost Mom like that. It is a real shock. I offer you patience so you can be kind with yourself as you ride the emotional roller coaster.

Thinking of you.....

Words aren't necessary.
We know.
We care.

Just breathe

Sheepmom said...

You don't have to worry about 'being OK' with us. We understand. You lost a member of your family. It's normal to be 'not OK' for a good while after a loss of this magnitude. Don't expect yourself to bounce back so fast. I wish we could carry the sadness for a while so you could rest. Like Blossom.

You don't have to be okay...until you are. Wish there was more we could do from out here in the ether. Be gentle with yourself. And know that we are all here, sending love and hugs and wishes for peace.

Blossom looks so happy in the green grass. Hope you find a way to make that reset button work, may just take awhile.

Hey Sara...Sorry you are still feeling down over your sweet Handy. If I lived closer I'd come over and make you and Saint Tim a nice dinner.
Hope to see you one of these days.

It's okay to not be okay. Give yourself time and keep talking.
Hugs.

Pam said...

I second "You don't have to be okay until you are". Well said. And as a side line, that it one zonked out sheep. Looks like you gave her Benadryl or something. Sweet baby Blossom. A big hug to you.

Shirley said...

I hope that the fuzzy blessings in your pasture help you through this tough time.

Tammy said...

I'm so sorry Sara. It's so hard to lose them. We all know what it is like and sometimes it just takes a while to get back on solid ground.
Take care,
Tammy

Christine said...

I still can't stand to pull up pictures of Louise. It takes time.

I need orange said...

Of course you're not ok. Recovering from such a huge loss takes time.

Sending much sympathy.

Agreeing with Sheepmom -- wishing we could hold your sorrow for a bit and let you rest.

YarnKettle said...

You just keep posting pictures as long as you need to, we will be here waiting for each and every one of them. You don't even have to keep hitting the reset button, you have to go through what you have to go through in order to feel better. It is OK to hurt.
I do pray for healing though.

Mary said...

I'm so sorry for your loss, and of course you're not okay. Take all the time you need. Beautiful pic of Blossom.

linnea said...

Sarah, that photograph is stunning. I can see all the love you have for your animals and your craft in that shot. Your work just keeps getting better and better.

Terry said...

I'm so sorry, Sara. I'm glad you have sweet Blossom and all the flock to comfort you.

Terry and Linda said...

Take your time Dear Friend...losing part of our hearts is hard...very hard. {{{{{HUGS}}}}

Dear Sara,
You have been sucker punched by life (and death). I would have just gone to bed and buried my head. How you've ben able to keep going through all of this enviable. I do not have your fortitude.
I do have prayers for you and Tim for coping strength and peace to come from your loving memories of a better time than now.
I surely understand your sorrow and grieving.

Ed said...

Everyone else pretty much said it already, I consider you a friend and my heart aches for your losses this year but you are strong and as the saying goes..time heals all wounds... even the Texans first loss... to Green Bay..yeech... If you want to see something really cute check out my WW tomorrow..:-))

farmlady said...

This wonderful picture of Blossom should help. Cry with your sheep and let them absorb your sorrow. It's a magical thing that animals do.

Oh Sara, there is no reset button for your heart.

As you go along through your days, doing what needs to be done, you will begin to find healing. We'll be holding you in our thoughts and prayers.

You've lost a companion. The more they are loved the longer it takes. Give yourself lots of time to heal, because that is exactly what it takes... a very long time.
(from one who knows all too well)

Michelle said...

There is no way past the grief, only through it. But love will bring you out on the other side. (((hugs)))

CathyD. said...

Lots of good and loving advice above. I'm just hoping your fleecy friends will help you through it (Blossom looks like a good listener).
Thinking of you and wishing I could help.

Light, love and a big hug xxx

Just post a picture or two. Words aren't needed when they won't come easily. We're all your friends and we love you and we understand. We''ll hold on to you as long as you need.

Benita said...

Boy do I understand that. I was looking at a picture of Mom last night and it hit me that I would never talk to her again - at least not in this life. It hit me pretty hard.

Hang in there. We may not be able to hit the reset button, but each day we can just keep on getting up and on with life. Just think of all the happy times you had together. And, you know, maybe write out a few of those funny stories you mentioned. The heart may ache, but at least they will make you smile through the tears while you are thinking about them. I know writing in my journal about some of the funny things Mom had done over the years made me laugh, and I know she was laughing right along with me.

I'm still praying for you.

kbdoolin said...

Sometimes it's really hard to count the blessings in our lives, especially when the tears are blurring everything. Just keep in mind that those blessings are still there. Once you've wiped away the tears you will be reminded of them again. In the meantime, give yourself the time to heal.
