On Dec 20 th I lost my friend John, Dec 24 th my good friend Luellen, Dec 26 th my brother Peter, Dec 28 th my friend lost her son, Jan 16 th my aunt/godmother passed away. But hardest of all I had to say good bye to my best friend Diana on Jan 18 th and today my other best friend Vivienne. All but 2 fought a courageous battle with cancer. Last week I was feeling quite down and it was raining so hard I complained. A homeless man heard me and his answer was " We are alive, that is a good thing. It is raining so we do not have to clean the streets and tomorrow the sun will come out and dry them. Enjoy life" His words has helped me and if he can be happy then I can be too again soon. I do know that I have lots of angels to help me enjoy life again.

Hi Nualaa, I truly believe that this man was sent to you in your time of despair. He was an Angel and didn't he make you feel better? I am so sorry for all your friends and family who died so close together. Time is a great healer and you always have your memories. Love Chris

Hi nualaa, No amount of words can express the lose that you and your friends families are feeling and going through. All I can say is, it will become easier as time goes on. You will always carry them in your heart and mind, and at times smile and laugh when something reminds you of them. Take care of yourself. Love Lorraine McNeill of Woodcroft South Australia

Hugs & prayers of comfort for you at this low time in your life. What pearls of wisdom from a seemingly unusual source. Perhaps you could stitch out the words & hang them to give you inspiration.

Thank You.
That is such a good idea. I will write them down and add them to my list. I want to finish a couple of quilts started by Diana and have not gone thru Vivienne's yet. I am sure the family will be in touch as none of them quilt.

Angels show up when they are needed the most. He's right, even when it is hard for us to understand the pain. So sorry for your great loss in your life.

That is a huge number of close losses in a short time. I am so sorry for your losses and will include you in my prayers for good grieving and a time of healing. Each of these surely enriched your life and you undoubtedly have others whose lives you have enriched. You are standing on the brink of the next stage of life. May the sweet memories of your loved ones compel you into your next choices.

I can understand how you feel, having lost so many friends and family in such a short time. God certainly sent you an angel and I'm so glad you heard His message. Give yourself time to grieve and to heal. Joy will come again. And in the meantime remember the good memories and create more good memories. Don't hesitate to talk to us any time. You know we care and there will always be someone to hear and listen with love.

I truly feel for you Nualaa. It is painful enough to lose even one friend, but to lose so many loved ones in such a short space of time must be almost unbearable
Sending healing thoughts and prayers to you, you will get through this hurtful time and if the homeless man's words help you do this then you just hang onto them. Write them down somewhere you can see them and hold them to you at those times you are at your lowest. He was obviously sent to you in your hour of need.
Hugs and blessings, Meg

Thank you Meg. My sister who is a cancer survivor believes in angels and say they helped her thru her illness and to get thru the loss of our other brother last year also from cancer. We have just heard another brother has lung cancer and we are waiting to hear how bad it is and if they can operate.
