Celebrating Women for the Real World



Why?

Taken From Us Too Soon
.
Sunday started out as any other Sunday. It was beautiful; cool, sunny, just absolutely gorgeous. The perfect day to work out in the garden and start getting it ready for spring.
.
Late morning the phone rank and it was my Niece calling to let me know that my sister had died.
.
WHAT???
.
My niece is pregnant and my sister was there helping her out with her other kids, and was getting ready to go back home to my BIL. Apparently Saturday night she had an upset stomach and complained that her hands and feet felt cold.
.
She went to bed and died in her sleep.
.
I am struggling with the emotions that I’m feeling right now. I’m so upset and numb that I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that she is gone.
.
I talked to her last week and she sounded good. She was even talking to Big G on what type of trekking poles to buy for hiking. This is not right and is not fair. I am no help to my niece right now because I am in such disbelief. I want to know why so badly that I feel almost consumed. Even knowing the stages of grief doesn’t make this any easier.
.
I. Am. Numb

    OMG that’s horrible. What really sucks is that she seemed from what you told us to be a very healthy and active person.

    I’m so very sorry.

    Holy shit honey.

    I am so sorry…that doesn’t bring her back but know that you are in my thoughts right now. The numbness eventually gives way to so many other emotions.

    Lean on us now…vent, remember, whatever…

    I am so sorry. The loss of a family member is always difficult but when its so unexpected and unexplained it just seems to make it even harder–I hope you have some answers soon–and some peace. Take care and know that you have friends thinking and praying for you and your family.

    Oh my goodness. I’m sorry…

    The numbness is probably a blessing, because when it wears off and the other stages start they will hurt. Just remember to lean on Big G and your family and friends.

    I’m sorry.
