Thank you Blossom.
I am grateful that I was able to finally get on my son's facebook page. I needed to see what his friends were saying. Why is it important to know others love him, miss him and are in pain?

I will now look in my day for things to be grateful for. For that I am grateful
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.

I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to have had Nik as my son and the fact that he was in my life for 30 years. I am grateful that I watched him grow from a beautiful child into a really handsome young man. I am grateful that the person he was was caring kind and loving.
It's easy to remember him I do it every day
But there's a pain within my heart that will never go away

love and miss you more each passing day

Took me a while to find this thread..

I am grateful that I have my man
I am grateful that my mom moved closer to me
I am grateful that I can talk about my brother with my mom anytime and we support each other
I am grateful that my father never had to bear witness to this
I am grateful to my family and friends who have stuck with me through this

I am very grateful for this forum and everyone on here, I appreciate every single reply I've ever received and I appreciate every post that is written. Together we travel this path alone, and it's not so lonely together.
In memory of my big brother Rob, my hero and best friend.

To forget time. To forgive life. To be at peace.

I am grateful for the time I had with my brother
For my husband, of barely a year, who has been both my rock and my whipping boy(the angry days)
For my brother's friends who live with us and have walked with me on this journey
For this website, without it...I don't even know where I'd be
For getting my job(I love) back after his death
For my friends who don't judge or try to "understand" my grief...they are just There For Me
I am grateful to be alive, to be able to enjoy what's given to me by the universe
I am grateful for those, who in the midst of their own nightmare, take a break to respond to mine
I am grateful for people like Blossom who start threads like this
I am grateful that, so far, today feels like it's gonna be a good day
*hugs* and good thoughts for all today...Peaches

It's amazing, the feeling one has when one contemplates exactly what one is grateful for. And it is amazing to read...

I am grateful that, at last, I am on some kind of road to healing (ok, it's a dirt road, full of potholes - it's a road at least). I've finally found the right time, activities and energy, to put things in place that address the physical effects of very early grief, and it is paying dividends...and has inspired me to keep building on them. Fatigue is no longer a constant state (everything falls to pieces when tired)...but when it visits, I know to rest. cali's advice of 'loving yourself back into your body' is a simple, beautiful, truth.

I can't say that this forum has 'accelerated' my grieving, but through everyone here, it has delivered what I was ripe for, without fail, each day. For this I am grateful. Take a cyber bow, all of you. (I do, however, miss scottsmum and shari's sister, Donna...and a few more folk I won't begin listing...I hope they are all ok).

I am grateful that our small family has always apologised when it was right and needed. The slate was clean when we laid our heads to rest each night before my son died....and when he died, it missed a beat, but only one....it goes on.
