Shane Whalen
This Prayer Circle is Dedicated to my son Shane Whalen Who Passed Away On March 15, 1999 at the Age of 24, & All Other Children

Start a prayer circle for bereaved parents who have lost a child.

There are many of us out there who have lost a child, and it is devastating. It changes the outlook on life, plunges you into a depression, and you think that the feelings and thoughts you have nobody else could possibly relate to. I think a prayer circle for bereaved parents would only benefit us and help us on our journey of grief. This Circle is one of Love, where a Grieving Parent can safely come to for Prayers, and to talk about their feelings.

Oh Gosh, Donna, ... What an awesome, loving, and compassionate post you've submitted to all! As I said earlier this morning or very late last night in a fwd page I sent to you ... You are so very, very gifted with expressing what's in your heart. :) So, take credit where credit is due! I have been up all night posting here, and at the prayer circle for little Crystal. Guess what? Our prayers have been answered! I just saw it on the home page last night, or rather earlier this morning. It's the new daily prayer thing that Sandy told us about in her email. My fingers are warning me to stop for now, but I just had to respond to your post above before doing so. Again, I enjoyed reading your awesome post. And, right back at Ya, ... As Sandy would say, "You Go, Girl!" :)

I noticed I have begun a new page! So, angel moms, please go back and check the previous page so you won't miss any posts! I'll play catch up tonight after the MADD DUI meeting. Thanks, again for your encouragement and prayers!
Love & Hugs,... And, to bed! :)

Good Morning All Angel Moms,
I am sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I have been very very busy and probably isolating again too. It took me a day or so to go back and read all the posts that I have missed. You are all so wonderful and loving. I have really missed yall. My niece got married this past weekend. She lives in Slidell, La and we drove there Thurs. evening and returned Sun. It was really beautiful. She made one of the most beautiful brides that I have ever seen. I was really worried about attending because of how I might react. You know, thinking that I will never see Aaron get married, etc. But it was absolutely beautiful and I had a really nice time. Well, our conference is next week in NY and I have been working really long and tiring hours to get ready for it. Sandy, do you still want to try and meet? I would love it if we can but I don't want you to drive all that way if you are really not up to it. I completely understand.
Donna, thanks so much for your post and concern for me. You too Selva. My therapist has given me the name of a "psychic" so to speak, and am seriously considering going to her seminar at the end of the month. Selva, I wish the one that you are going to was the week earlier and I would go with you. I will be in NY next week, but I leave to come home on the 20th. Please let me know what you thought and how it went.
Well, angel moms, I don't mean to cut ya'll off short, but I am at work and have a ton of stuff to do. I will try to post more tonight.
Love you all,

Hello my dear sister, I'm happy you feel a little better and have posted, we miss when someone doesn't post, I get worried, so now I can rest a little with you, :) I am praying mightily for your health, continue to take it easy, and yes, I am also praying for your trip, you need the peace and getting away with no distractions like phone, tv, etc., will do you a world of good! I'm so happy that the Poem touched you, Cindy sent it to me, and I shared it with all of you, because it did speak volumes to me also! Oh, your dogs sound so cute, you picked a very good name for your little one, :) love you my sister Selva with the big heart, :) and praying for your heart's desire,
Lots of love & Hugs,

Hi Cin, really nice to see you posting!
I know you're busy with the other site, but stop being a stranger and post here every now and then, :) Gosh, I can remember when you first posted here, don't ask me what page though, :) and since then you've kept Krissy's memory alive and honoured her beautiful spirit in so many ways, I know how proud she is of her Mom, but I understand the hole that's still there in your heart.
And we all thank you for honouring our own children with your Angel signatures, sadly I see it's getting longer, but what a Joy to see our child's name on your pages! There are very beautiful and loving Angel Moms here, and I hope you do get to know them, you'll be blessed by their love, support and prayers. God bless you Cin for all that you do,
Love & Hugs,

7/8/2003 16:37

Hello dear Moms, I have to quit for now but will be back later, our dear Miss V, my prayers are with you for your presentation tonight, I know you'll do a smash-up job and touch the hearts of all those there!
Love you all, and will return later,

Our Child
I'll lend you for a little while
A child of mine God said
For you to cherish while she lives
And mourne for when she's dead
She may be yours for many years
Or only two or three
But will you till I call her home
Look after her for me.

She'll bring her love to gladden you
And should her stay be brief
You'll have a host of memories
As solace for your grief
I cannot promise she will stay
Since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below
I want this child to learn.

I've looked this whole world over
In my search for teachers true
And in the crowd that throng lifes lane at last I've chosen you
Now will you give her all your love
Nor think your labour vain
Nor turn against me when I come
To take her back again.
Love you Tracy

Hi Tracy, and welcome to the Circle! That was so thoughtful of you to post that Poem, God bless you, many of us have heard it or variations of it before, but I never get tired of reading it for I believe it to be so true. Our children are very special gifts to us from God, and they were put into our lives for a reason. Some to teach us lessons, some to learn lessons from us, and sometimes a bit of both. How blessed we are to be their Moms, chosen by God Himself! Thank you dear Tracy for posting it here for all, and I hope you'll visit again. May Our Lord bless you in whatever way He knows you need,
Love & Hugs,

7/8/2003 20:48

Hi alex2, Tracy, welcome to this Circle of Love, do you know that it is what I posted it in my Solange's Memorial, and it is so true, but I still get angry at Him for taking my daughter (only 20) away from me, she was all I had in my life, so I am still dealing with the lost (Aug 15 2002), I know HE chosed me, but God why did He taked her away from me. Please keep coming back to this Circle of Love, you will find so much love and understanding, this is God's sent. Selva

7/8/2003 20:55

Hello dear Miss V, I misread your post in my haste to post to all, (: I thought your meeting was tonight, but it's tomorrow night! Oh Verna, of course we'll pray for you, but I know you will give an outstanding Presentation at MADD - DUI, and I also understand why Cheryl's reluctant to keep up with it, and more importantly you understand, you're a loving Mom and looking out for Cheryl's best interests.
Of course she still misses Diane, she has to deal still with the void left in her life without her precious big sister there, to talk to, share things with, and just have her physically in her life. You're so right, our surviving children have a grief of their own to deal with, and in our own grief we have to make sure and remember that, we lost a child, and they lost a sister or brother, a different bond, but a precious one too. And yes, our prayers are with you and Cheryl, and our love, and I know you'll do a wonderful, touching Presentation tomorrow night!!
Lots of love & Hugs,

7/8/2003 20:57

Hi my sisters, deep valley, went to my phsycho today and it did good, but I am still in the valley, she understands that she can not keep my pain away, but she understands as well as you do, she lost her son almost 10 years ago, and she still feels the pain. Lisa I'm so glad to hear from you, my e mails to you are blocked, but I am happy to know you are OK. Verna, I know you will do wonders tonight, my prayers are with you. Donna, please tell your sister that she is part of the family, we are praying for her and you, and I know that God will listen, Sandy thank you my sister , your e mails mean soooooo much to me, I share the one about The surviyng mother with my Dr. She loved it as much as I did.You are such an Angel.

Dearest Selva, How are you doing phyiscally is there any improvement. I hope they have some way of giving you relief before your trip and am truly hoping the trip itself will help, I'm sorry the Valley days are still rough and hoping only the best. Thanks for your prayers for my sister. Verna you are very sweet and thankyou for your post and wishing you all the best, I too thought it was tonight. Lisa it's so good to hear from you and know how you are hope your trip goes well and Good Job going to the Wedding and wish you and Selva were joining for the conference but we have high hopes for both of you and God be with you both and may you find his Solace and Peace.

Our memories are of our angels
that brighten our days
In all kinds of wonderful mystical ways

There vividness comes as a light from above and we feel we're surrounded
by warm, caring love.

Like clouds after the rain
Their smile brought the sun, filling many moments with laughter and fun.

Our memories are of an angel without any wings
That Blessed our lives... the most precious of things.

7/9/2003 12:59

It's not with words that loss is measured.

Not with flowers, nor with tears.

But with memories that are treasured Throughout the passing years.....

7/9/2003 13:04

Dearest Angel Moms, I have something to give you and hope it will help,
How many peices of a broken heart must shatter, I prayed so many times in my life.
" As many times as life asked"
"So come to me and let me heal and mend them"
Am I stronger because of the breaking.
"No my child, wiser if you let me teach you"
"Rest in me, trust me to renew your tender Spirit"
"Rest in me, trust me and,Believe"
This came to me after Prayer and I was hurting and angry, someone I Loved Dearly was in a hospital ICU so bruised and beaten and no longer coherrent and I was told my loved one would be placed in a Nursing home for Life because my loved one would never be ok I was to dismantle the home and find a Nursing Home that was in 2001 but when I prayed this is what came and I knew I could go on yes I was still devasted numb but the peace that came that night as I prayed didn't leave and every night I climbed on Our Heavenly Fathers lap and everday I hung on, I know what many of you are facing is not much different worse for some but I hope in some way this gives you Hope and strenght to hang on and to climb on Our Fathers lap and tell him wether anger sorrow numbness or weary of heart. I Love You my Sisters you are in my heart and in my Prayers Much Love Donna

7/9/2003 13:08

Dearest Deb, Thankyou for sharing your Michael and yes I believe and someday you'll send us a photo of your granddaughter and call me Donna ok I just quit writing and there was yours so beautiful and true. LOVE&BEARHUG ATTACK! Donna

7/9/2003 15:05

Hi dear Lisa, it's so terrific to see a post from you again, I know you're very busy with work and all, but please don't isolate yourself, you know by now that you are a part of this safe haven, and we all want to know how you're doing. Gosh yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if you and Selva could go together, and I too pray for God's peace for you and His answers to your heart's longing. That's wonderful that the Wedding went so well and you were able to enjoy yourself, even for a while, sometimes the anticipation leading up to an event is worse than the actual event itself, so bravo to you for going! Our prayers and love are with you always, dear Lisa,
Love & Hugs,

7/9/2003 15:21

Hi my sister, I'm glad that going to your psycho did you some good, having lost a child herself, she knows better than one who hasn't and can help you more. Yes, how are you feeling physically, did you get your results back yet? You want to be able to enjoy your Retreat, and so do we, it sounds like such a beautiful, peaceful place, it's too bad that you and Lisa couldn't go together, and you know we're praying for God's peace for you and your heart's desire also! Ah, you're such a sweetie, I'm glad that the Poem touched your heart and you shared it with your psychotherapist, your e-mails mean a lot to me too, they are always full of love from your heart, and they always touch me in a special way. Love you my sister, and praying for good things to come your way to help lessen your valley days with the help of Our Lord,
Much love & Hugs,

7/9/2003 15:31

Hi dear Deb, all the best with your test tonight, and let us know when you get your marks, I know that God heard the prayers said, and is helping you with your studies and exams! What a beautiful poem for all, we can all relate to what it says, thanks for sharing it dear Deb. I know that you will one day hold Skyla in your arms, we're all praying for it to happen, so that's wonderful that you've made that beautiful scrapbook of Michael, she'll know so much about her Dad by you doing so! God be with you tonight on your test, Deb, we're all rooting for you,
Love & Hugs,

7/9/2003 15:35

Dear Miss V & Angel Moms, I goofed, Verna's presentation WAS last night, I was having another senior's moment, :) but happily she wrote this morning and all went very well, she was tired after all the driving, and it rained on the way back home, but her Angel brought her home safely, and we all knew she'd do a wonderful job with her Presentation! Sorry for the mix-up,
Love Sandy

7/9/2003 16:07

Hi dear Donna, Mending is so very touching, and such wise words that came to you and by sharing, you do give hope and strength to all, whatever our current trial may be, and remind us to climb on Our Father's lap and rest, tell Him of our worries and concerns, He so wants us to share them with Him, and although your trial was very hard, He gave you the strength and peace to hold on and not give up, that's beautiful. That's a very sad story about your loved one, done by the hands of another, little wonder you were in pain and angry yourself, anyone would be if that happened to one of our loved one's, I pray that they have recovered, but if not fully, they are blessed beyond words to have you in their life.
Thank you for sharing such a difficult event, but you do us a wonderful blessing by telling us of "Mending", sometimes we need to be reminded to give it over to God and seek His loving lap. Love you dear one,
and lots of tender Teddy Hugssss,

7/10/2003 09:30

Dearest Sandy, I hope it helps someone like it did for me. There is a part what I call a miracle it took my loved one a long long time to recover not fully but I Praise God there is no memory but yes it left its damage but my Loved One worked really hard, and came further than anyone ever thought and no longer is in a Nursing Home and Pray never will be again. No, I'm not angry but I do Believe in Miracles I did before and Thank God for the Miracle of my Loved One and I learned there is no justice on earth like God's justice and I still climb on Our Fathers Lap and I do Believe not because of the miracle but because Our Father walked with me and there were times I thought I would crumble litrally so many surgeries for my loved ones ankle and foot and knee but the worst was my loved one knew no one and in the two years had a few lucid moments but Our Father held me up and yes I could go to him thats a miracle too. I Love You My Sisters and TenderBearHugs Donna
