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.

Lee Ann,
Yes 1982 was a good year wasn't it? I wanted you to know that I am praying for your friend. What a terrible situation. I pray it all works out for the entire family. I know what you mean about getting sick again....this has been a terrible season for cold and flu. My little boy is sick today with sore throat and fever. Take care and savor those hugs and kisses!

Although I haven't posted, I do read posts at least once a week to keep up.I had the cold-flu thing all week too. Also recovering from mom's birthday 1/31, and mom and dads anniversary would have been Feb 6. I have a prayer request. Her name is Uni. I met her at church, she's an old friend of Mikes mom. A very sweet lady. She is losing her battle with breast cancer. Her 3 kids are no help and the time is nearing. She is a very religious woman and I know she must be ready to go home. Please pray she has an easy passing and that the fight won't be so hard anymore.

Hello all dear fellow AngelMoms and sisters! I'm no longer MIA.....its good to be back! Thank you my dear sister for posting about me and thank you all for your kind words and prayers! You're all such a big blessing, not just to me, but to everyone here at this Circle.
I've read all the back posts and see that some are going through a very hard time right now, just know that all of you are in my love and prayers.
I know this month is a very difficult one for some of our Moms, including as well Donna, (arqt) she too is in the valley with Marcus's date coming up.
Its freezing here as well and we finally have snow, the good thing is, we can go skating, something I love to do. I read a wonderful Book that the god Carmelite Sisters sent me, "God in Ordinary Time", how in even the mundane moments of our day, God is ever present if we keep ourselves open to Him. Terrific spiritual book!
Still a little tired, but that will go away.
My love and prayers to you all!

2/7/2007 09:18

Oh, that's sad dear Chris, yes of course I'll include Uni in my prayers, God love her.
Happy to see you posting as well,
Love & Hugs,

2/7/2007 09:37

Thank you CHRIS for posting and letting us know how you are doing. Anniversaries are hard aren't they. I pray that you will receive peace that passes all understanding today. I pray for your friend Uni, that God would grant her a quick and easy passing from this world so that she would be free from pain and concern for her children, in Jesus' name.
It's good to hear from you again.

Father God, I bring SANDY before You and ask for healing for her body; that she would recover physically and emotionally from this 'bug' that's going around. Father, grant her body peace from this ailment that has attacked her and give her strength today, in Jesus' name.

Father God, I bring SELVA before You today, that You would protect her as she is busy with her job right now and for the next 2 months. Father, give her a desire to rest from her labors at the end of each day, and give her peace as she rests, in Jesus' name.

Father God, I bring VERNA before You right now. Father, give her strength today and help her to know how much she has improved since her surgery last year. Father, encourage her today to do her exercises and to be thankful to You for her life today, in Jesus' name.

Father, I lift up JANE to you today; Father, give her strength, both physical and emotional, to do the job(s) that You have ordained for her to do. Thank You, Father, that You live within her and that You give her peace and encouragement today, in Jesus' name.

Father God, for all my sisters here, I ask for healing from this flu bug that's going around. Give us strength today Father to overcome it in Jesus' name.

Love and many (((HUGS))) to you all!

2/7/2007 09:40

Father, I also lift Kathy before You today, as well as her little boy. Father, I ask that You would grant them both quick healing from any ailment that is attacking them right now in Jesus' name.
Love to you,

2/7/2007 09:48

Sandy, it appears that I was typing as you were posting. It's GOOD to have you up and going again. Take it easy for a while, you don't want to get down again.
Actually, I'm tired of the snow for a while. We're supposed to get some more freezing rain/sleet/snow today and tomorrow; and yesterday it was 55 degrees! At least most of the previous snow and ice are gone since it was so warm yesterday! Our driveway is now mostly puddles instead of frozen snow/ice. The wind is so cold today that those puddles are frozen; and the snow and ice that were in the birdbaths (and melted yesterday) is frozen again. We haven't had a winter like this in several years. At least I was able to get out yesterday for the first time in about a week and it felt SOOOOO GOOD!
Take care of yourself!
Love and (((HUGS))),

2/7/2007 12:48

Dear sisters,
I pray everyone is doing well today. With illness and valley days it seems like a roller coaster ride! I am doing better. Feeling better too. Thank you for all of your prayers.

SANDY, it is so good to see you are feeling better. Please continue to rest though. I made the mistake of not resting enough and I got it right back. My prayers will continue for you :)

CHARLENE, thank you so much for your prayer for my little boy David and for me. I think I will spend this weekend deep cleaning so I can try and get rid of this bug! You are also in my prayers. It sounds like you made it out of the valley fairly quickly...Amen to that! Yes God is good.

JANE, I am praying for you sister that you are able to endure. I am sorry Bob is not doing well. What a blessing you are to him I am sure. You are a wonderful example of a "Child of God". Please be sure and rest when needed and I will continue my prayers for you both!

CHRIS, I will be sure to include Uni in my prayers today. How sad that is. My prayers to you too sister as these birthday and anniversary dates are upon you. They are so hard. I have a few coming myself.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 NIV

2/7/2007 22:42

Thank you Charlene and Kathy for your prayers. Also thank you for anyone else who has prayed but not posted it. Bob is still in the hospital. He was told the chemo he was getting didn't work so they are trying something new. He's disappointed because it means he can't start radiation treatment until this round of chemo is finished. He is still taking strong pain meds and is disoriented and groggy. Bob has truly taught me how to persevere and fight for what I need.

Sandy it is so good to see you back. Please take Kathy's advice. This flu is nasty and loves to come back.

Kathy, that is one of my favorite verses.
Love to all, Jane

An Update on my grandmother,
Remember a couple of months ago I posted my grandmother was in a nursing home due to a broken hip and dementia. For the last two weeks I have been trying to call her, but she was unable to talk. I was told by her aide that she was taking strong pain meds. I just found out that she had a stroke two weeks ago. According to my sister she is able to talk again, however gets very confused. She also has to use a wheelchair all the time and cannot feed herself. I know her time here is short. I had to make the decision of attending the wedding of my stepson or seeing her. I feel there is no unfinished business with Gram. There's nothing that hasn't been said. However, with my stepson and all the family that will be there, there's a lot of unfinished business. They don't know the "new" me. My life has made a 180 degree turnabout since they last saw me. Instead of despair I have great hope. I am fine if Gram passes and I don't get to see her again this side of Heaven. To be reconnected with my stepfamily is far more important.

2/8/2007 10:02

JANE, I'm so glad you are able to think through the decision-making process and know what you need to do (about seeing your grandmother vs seeing your step-family). I'm usually stewing for quite a while on what to do and then sometimes after the decision's made, I still don't know if I made the right one or not. That's very possibly why I have the stress-related problem that I have right now. My dr. thinks I might have irritable bowel syndrome (which is very likely stress-related) since I had it last year at this time too. And the year before at this time I had indigestion and chest pains so bad that I ended up in the hospital for an angiogram. It showed that, physically, my heart was fine; just stress-related pain. I need wisdom and an alert mind to be able to make decisions without stewing about them first.
May God bless you as you see your step-family; and may He open the doors to their hearts to see that you have changed and that they need what (Who) you have now.
Love and (((HUGS))),

Dear Charlene,
By nature I am a pragmatic, so it is easy for me to see both sides. However this time there was a lot of emotions to deal with. I make it a practice to spend some solitary time with God everyday. I usually do it before I go to bed. It was during one of these times that God gave me real peace about my grandmother. Then I knew I was off to Florida (poor me!) for the wedding.

For a long time I was 100 percent pragmatic. All my decisions were from the head, which left no room for compassion or any emotions that deals with the heart. Now I think I'm learning a good balance. It's this combination that allows me to work with Bob. The pragmatic side sees things that others don't, but I can also respond to his pain compassionately.

Speaking of Bob, he had a heart attack today. I spoke to him tonight and he told me he felt better than he has in days. Tomorrow they are going to do a catherazation (sp?) of his heart. He was going to be moved to the cardiac floor. He told me he just wants this issue to be resolved so he can start chemo again and then radiation. I have also learned that the cancer has spread. He is just such a fighter, I have to admire him.

2/9/2007 08:49

Thank you all dear sisters for your warm welcome back, you're all so precious! Jane, so sorry to hear about your friend Bob, thankfully God has put you in his life as well as the others who help out, nobody should have to face all this alone, God love him.
CHARLENE, I'm not sick of the snow yet, we had a very late start to winter so that's why....BUT ask me next month and I may be singing a different tune, :)
My love & Hugs to all,

Our dearest Anita,
Today is one of your special day's, your precious Kimberley's Birthday, God love you.
These days are always so difficult on us, bittersweet as well; we remember the good ones and we also remember the bad memories that always come up too.
I'm thinking of you with love and prayer today, I know it's not only today, you also have your son's special day coming up as well, but with the strength you can draw from this Circle and those who love and care about you, especially prayer, you will get through this month.
Today is Kimberley's day, and I wish you the peace and love of this Circle and expecially of Our Lord, whose peace and love surpasses all.
We're here for you,
Much love 7 Tender Hugs,

2/9/2007 12:59

Dear Sandy,
Thanks for your kind words and I know I can depend on you and my other sisters to help me through today.
I am a little down today since this is the first birthday of Kim's that I haven't been able to go to the cemetary. I won't drive if there is ice on the road and there is ice.But I did take her flowers to her grave yesterday. I will look on that as a blessing for myself. If I had waited till today I wouldn't have been able to take them.
Love you all,

2/9/2007 14:40

Dear Anita. I know how difficult special days are on us, may God wrap His Arms around you today to console you, and may you feel Kimberly's presence next to you. Kimberly is only one year older than Solange, I am sure that both of them are very good friends now and all our angel kids are celebrating her birthday today. My special prayers are with you today, also my love and understanding. Selva

2/9/2007 16:24

Dear Anita, ~ I join other angel moms in prayer for you on this your Kimberly’s (BD). May our Lord and Savior help you recall fond memories even if through tears. All of us here know all too well just how difficult special days can be. So remember to pamper yourself and that you are in our thoughts which place you in our heartfelt prayers.
Love & Angel Hugs,

2/9/2007 18:03

ANITA, you have had my prayers all day even though I haven't been home until now. May God bless you with warm and happy memories of your Kim today; and may He fill you with His peace.
Love and (((HUGS))) and prayers,

2/9/2007 18:48

Dear Anita,
My thoughts and prayers are with you today. These days can be so hard and I pray that the Lord comfort you with wonderful memories and warm thoughts of your precious Kimberly. I am so glad you went to place flowers yesterday, see God knows doesn't he. Love to you sister and God bless.

2/9/2007 21:24

Anita My thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep those joyful memories in your heart to help you through these sad times.

I am still feeling the bug that Matt had and has shared with me but not as bad as when I first had it. Last night I went to bed with a migraine and a hurting back but today is only the hurting back. I guess that all comes with getting older. The weather is cold here but no snow. We had some for the last couple of weeks but it would snow and then it was gone by the next day.We have patches of ice here and there. We might be getting a storm around Tuesday but that might go out to the ocean so we won't get much of anything.Guess I better go get my chores done and go hit the old heating pad. Love you all

Dear Anita,
Sorry for posting so late, but I want you to know you are in my prayers today and in the coming days. I pray the Lord grant you peace and a good night's rest. I'm sorry you couldn't get to the cemetary today, it's good that you were able to get out yesterday. Today I'm sure you honored Kimberly's birthday different than you planned and that was painful. I pray that God covers you with His grace and mercy. Love, Jane

2/10/2007 09:50

LEE ANN, I know what you mean about the heating pad; these 'old' bodies seem to ache more and more as we get older don't they. I've been using an herbal heat pack (the kind you put in the microwave and heat up) for my back and neck some days and I've been using the heating pad to keep my feet warm. HaHa. Keep loving those grandsons; it's worth every hug and kiss from them even though we can't fight off the germs like we used to do.
Love and (((HUGS))),

2/11/2007 00:41

Some times that old heating pad is not large enough to cover all that need to have the heat. I take every hug and kiss that I can. My friend is a single Mom and we have been seeing alot of each other lately and she has a nine year old daughter and I am getting the hugs from her now. I guess I am just that old grandma type.
