To Cheer You Up
My friend’s Rocket Bike.
As a very wise 13yo boy said to me when I was blue, “now it’s time to take care of you.”
sending you *hugs* and hoping you are un-blued soon.
My heart goes out to you and losses you’ve had. Last year, my mom, grandmother, and best friend passed away two months apart. When I have times like this, I try to find a way to laugh and cry and to eat fudge. But sdn seems to have eaten all of the fudge in New York, so maybe some chocolate would do?
(I put this on anonymous so you could screen it, because my grad students have been reading your blog, and I don’t want them to think I’m sappy and stuff).
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Hope there will be better days for you.
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYONE IN THIS WORLD KNOWS.
but Aunt Jan knows because she’s watching over us now.
I’m sorry you’re feeling blue today. Rest and take care of you.
Don’t be sad.
Here’s hoping you’re not-so-blue tomorrow. Maybe you’ll be red or green or even yellow. =)
because i am blue
i am sorry you are down. i send you positive loving energy. you deserve it, you are one of the greatest people out there Laurie. I admire you and have much fondness for you. I hate losing people. I lost my aunt not so long ago, she, like yours, was the most fantab person. I had a huge hole when she left. but, all that she taught me rang through after she was gone. i was blessed she was in my life. i wrote a couple pieces about her, and they were picked up for publication. if and when you are ready, i will send them to you. If you need anything, feel free to email me. take care of yourself, be gentle with yourself, and allow the grief to come, becuase with it, comes the honoring. one of your many fans, Mary Black Bonnet my email: email@example.com
Whenever I’m feeling like that, deep inside the core, a feeling, an ache for someone who I miss (because of any reason) I imagine us sitting and talking, whether it’s a memory, or something I make up.
Sometimes I sit and look at the sky and talk to the person I miss. I tell them what’s going on and tell them how I feel and what I remember about them. Then I just let tears roll off my cheeks, and tell them why I’m crying.
I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Except I’m talking to people that are alive. It’s a great way to let everything out for me.
I’m praying again. And you’ll be in my prayers.
so sorry you are down
> Hi Laurie,
I’m sorry to hear about your Aunt, and hope that her memories will be for a blessing and bring you comfort. I would love to hear from you at some point when you are feeling better. You know where to reach me I think! When in doubt though, leave me a message on livejournal or ask my mom and she will give you my info!
Take care and feel much better soon!
ps. I’m ashamed to say acutally, that I’ve not yet read your books. However, I DEFINITELY will soon as I hear they are fanstasic, especialy Speak which my mom went out and promptly bought. Which one do you reccomend for a first time reader?
Proud to know you!
I am blue, too. Should we start a Smurftastic support group?
I doubt that this will mean much to you because I’m a complete stranger and it seems like in such situations there are no good words to say, but I’m really sorry that you are sad, and you are very much in my thoughts.
