vigil cloth

It's going to take a lot of time to discover just how damaged/changed I am.

Yes. It's uncharted territory for all who go there, this land of grief. It's unique for each person. Reach out any time it might help, or if you wonder if anyone is there. For a moment, it may give you some respite. Somehow, you will learn to live with this unthinkable loss. You'll do it your way. God bless you, my friend.

It is a road that none of us what to travel, but eventually will. Use your art, reach out, know that you are not alone. You will be changed, only time will tell how. You will discover how resilent you are and that you will emerge like one of your cloths, still beautiful, but not the same. xoxo

I don't think you are damaged at all you are grieving in a very beautiful way. I am inspired by the way you are handling your grief to be honest.

I know there is no escape from the pain. Time helps to diminish it some, but it is never really gone. However, somehow, you go on, and you find that you are really stronger than you thought. What I hope is that you will emerge at some point with all the wonderful love and memories of your life together to warm your heart and make you smile...

I have just found your blog and read it. I am so very sorry, as insufficient as that is, it is heartfelt. May you heal find peace.

We all change all the time .... only this time you will be aware of it so much more with this loss ...
Take care Deb.

Nothing will ever be the same. Life will just go on, as it does, and slowly beauty will emerge again and float on the beautiful memories. The grief will be there, but never as sharp as now.
Love and best wishes.. and peace...

Yes, I think deep grief may leave one feeling damaged, similar to a terrible wound that has been suffered. We are changed by it. May you find all the ways in which you may have a beautiful life, even in the midst of loss.

I keep coming back to this post and just wanting to come right over and give you a hug xxx

I think that this is one of your most beautiful cloths.
It will always hold power.
It will always hold your husband.
I think you should put it under your pillow, and allow it to heal.

I agree with the person who calls herself tangled stitch - you are an inspiration to us all in the way you are handling this huge change. This huge wound.
