“Black Friday”

Description from Bead-itudes: Today is a very sad day for me. A very good friend lost her 3 year battle with ALS. I loved her and miss her terribly. She was quite and incredible lady. Very thoughtful - and just a joy to be around. Even when this horrible disease took away her speach and ability to walk, she strived to life each day to the fullest, and did her best to find some joy in each day. I am honored to have been her friend. The stones are because I am so incredible sad. I added the Peridot and Lemon Chrysoprase and because Lime Green was her favorite color. :>(

    You have my deepest sympathy. I lost a friend, Elaine, several years ago to this terrible disease. It is frightening to see how quickly she was affected.

    Thank you Lynn, Faith, KittyMom, Beth, Lee and Crazy Chick. I appreciate so much your caring. I know she is at peace now. It’s my own selfishness that wishes her still here.

    I know what you mean. You’d like to have her back — if only she weren’t suffering any longer. That’s how I felt when Mom passed in October.

    Oh I’m sorry Lynn. I didn’t know about your Mom passing. I must not have been on the site much at that time – and missed that.

    I have many wonderful memories of trips to the mountains, backyard BBQ’s, Christmas parties, planting flower gardens together and our weekly Small Group meetings. But right now they don’t seem to be filling that big hole in my heart.

    Thank you. It was really hard at the time, but has been getting better, especially lately. I realize she is not suffering any longer and is at peace at last. I am taking comfort in that, plus she will always be in my heart, just as your dear friend will be in yours.

    Glad to hear you are beginning to heal. I look forward to the day I can think of my friend with a smile, instead of tears.

    A beautiful pick for a very special friend. Your heart is breaking now. Try to find comfort in one of the special memories you have of her. Know that she is at peace and she will always live in your heart. Sadness will be with you for a while. Someday when you are ready make a special lime green memento for her, then maybe you will smile again.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    It is amazing to me how after day upon day of tears, one day I started smiling again and was able to remember Mom with more smiles than sadness. Not to say that I don’t still cry and miss her, but it’s different.

    I wish the same for you one day, when you think of your dear friend.

  22. Bead-itudes
    Bead-itudes says:

    Thank you so much all of you for your comforting words. Sorry I’m a little late getting back to all of you. I am just signing on today. Slept in this morning – yesterday was such a stressful, emotionally exhausting day.

    Sheltie Mom – you have given me a great idea. Not ready for that yet – but as time passes and healing begins – I can definetly see that as a possiblity.

    Thank you Lynn – I will remember your words. For now I’m trying to keep a stiff upper lip to get through this time.
