Death In My Family
Courage and endurance is what I need. How would you rise to this challenge?
Your words of encouragement and support would be most welcome.
There have been so many words of caring, support and encouragement. Unfortunately, only two people of all those that have written have been able to make comments directly. I haven't been very successful either in posting them. So I am going to add them on to this article.
Responses to my announcemement really help me find that light inside the darkness that I need so much to hold onto.

There are moments when the truth we know, as you so eloquently express in describing the journey to Self, eludes us and we cannot feel strength or peace from that truth. But it is always there, and you will feel that peace and strength, and renewal will come; as someone you know says, "Patience, patience, patience..."
We send our love and will name you in our prayers.
With love from one and all,

Hi Anastasia,I tried to add something to your blog but I mess up with my password because I never use it.... You can add this if you like!
I'm so sorry about your challenges.... Losses are so hard---although at our age, we'll be learning more and more about dealing with them all the time....
Every age has its lessons. Everything is hard, even when we know it's just real life and normal. I'm sorry.
I think of you often, and fondly. I worry myself about losing my eyesight and hearing, as I am so intellectually dependent upon both for all the things I enjoy most. Life can be so difficult sometimes. I often think I should learn Braille, which I think would be an activity I would enjoy if I had sight losses, one I'm sure it's easier to learn while sighted.

Your dark night of the soul will lead you through a tunnel where, as you emerge, you will find that you have more Light in your life than you've ever had before.
The walk through this darkened tunnel is the only way to the Light.
Release and let go of anything that may be keeping you from walking quickly and with great strength and courage..............
What you will discover as you step out of this tunnel is the REAL YOU.
I love you.

I am here for you now, forever and always, please please dear friend remember I am here for you.
Not only are you in my thoughts you are in my prayers and in my heart.
Reach out, shout scream, swear, cry, laugh or just vent I am here for you. tell me what you need from me.
I will ask a dolphin to swim from me in england to you in america, on its back.
I shall place a giant hug for you from me.I am thinking of you .

I also tried to post yesterday.
You're an amazing lady & as always, my prayers are w/you.
When you called last, I was doing genealogy @ a Memphis cemetery ... on a road trip. I'm back & would love to chat, & see how you’re doing, when you've a chance.
Keep up w/your God-filled, amazing Spirit.
Love ~ Linda

Be healed and be well, Anastasia. Think healing; think restoration.
Do you want me to put your name into the circle of healing in our prayer group?
Love and support, Peter.
