Sadness flies away on the wings of time

Jean de La Fontaine

August 29th - time heals

It has been said, time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain intime, the mind protectingits sanity covers then with scar tissue and the pain lessons. But it is never gone.

Rose Kennedy

We haveall heard, itll all get better in time, but Ive leaned that yes, the pain is less, but I’m still brokenhearted with the death of my loved ones. 

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

Dr. Seuss

Sadly my family has had 3 deaths and I still miss DDH, DS#1 and one of my grandsons, our little Pumpkin every day. I didnt just bounce back from losses likethat. Eventually it didn'thurt as much, the pain was less, but they will never be forgotten. Time wont change the fact thatIll never be able to hear their voice, or that theyll never be a part of this growing and loving family. Time doesn’t heal, ACCEPTANCE DOES. When we accept the situation as it is. Then we can heal and move on. 

As hard as it seems, It is what it is and life goes on.

I think we’ve all learned to appreciate each other more and the time we have to spend with each other.

Say what you will, tis better tobe left than never to have been loved.

William Congreve

In memory of DS#1, It’s his birthday today.

Live long enough and you will have hurt big time. But your statement of ACCEPTANCE is so very good.
I have always liked that quote from Dr. Seuss. Smile because it happened.
Very good dear lady,

I think after our loved ones pass we come to that new normal. Its never the same, but we can make it through the days and even smile and laugh though we never forget them and how dear they are to us.

I agree with Rose - it is like the wounds heal somewhat but the scars always remain.

People don't understand sometimes....they say to move on with your life after someone passes. How is that possible when a piece of your heart is missing? You're right, the scars that are left are the reminders of the lives lost. But thank God for the scars....the memories we have. The love left behind to hold onto. We will forever miss our loved ones, but we can thank God for the scars that saved them by grace....the scars on the hands and feet of Jesus that opened the gates of Heaven, where our loved ones are now....waiting for each one of us. And in our own passing from this place, we will see our loved ones again. And see the One face to face, who's nail scarred hands made it all possible for us to be reunited for eternity. xo

I'm writing this down so I'll never forget: "Time doesn’t heal, ACCEPTANCE DOES."

I think the bruises get lighter, but the remain tender.
