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.

Sandy,

Thank you for letting us know about Selva. I am very happy she is ok. I will continue to pray for her quick recovery.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS!
Hope your day is full of sunshine :) Best wishes to you on your special day!

Jane,

I won't get a chance to post over the weekend but wanted you to know you will be in my prayers as Elizabeth's HD approaches. You are so fortunate to have someone who cares so much about you. Mike will help you get through, he sounds like such a kind gentle person. God bless sister.

Wishing you all a very blessed and peaceful weekend. I will be working some in my yard and then I promised my little boy we would go to the beach. I will take a good book and just relax. I am starting to give myself permission to not be busy ALL the time!

If Christ lives in us, controlling our personalities, we will leave glorious marks on the lives we touch.....

Love to all
Kathy

To all my dear sisters,
Sorry I have been MIA for so long. Once school let out there was still a lot of things that had to be done and school starts back in less than 4 weeks.
I've noticed there's a few new moms and I want to say welcome to our circle of love and understanding. I'm sorry for the reason you are here but I'm also glad you found us.
I'm also working on some web pages as a tribute to our Angel Kids if any of you would like your childs picture on it let me know.I'm going to fix it on myspace.
Hopefully the next few days I can sit around and do nothing.
Love you all,
Anita

Hi Everyone,

Thank you Kathy and Anita for remembering Elizabeth's HD. Also thank you Cindy for the e-mail. I know the rest of you were thinking and praying for me. My day went well yesterday. I worked a different department and was pretty busy. Then Mike and I went out to dinner. We attempted to go to prayer meeting but because of a men's program, no one else showed up. We watched a very old Nancy Drew movie (1939). He has a collection of very old movies and they're fun to watch. I actually think Monday will be harder for me cuz it would have been Gram's 95th birthday. You know all the firsts that happens after a loved one dies. I'm also off of work, so I set up a day with a close friend. Need to get ready for church, but I'm using my ned so I had a little time to post. Everyone have a blessed Sunday. We're going to Mike's daughter's house for dinner. I found a great bargain for clothes for her daughter. Yea, I get to buy little girl clothes again! Love and gratitude to all, Jane

Dear Jane,
I'm so sorry too for not posting yesterday, for your precious Elizabeth's Heaven Date, please forgive me as well and know that you were thought of, praying that the day wasn't too difficult for you. It sound's as though it went well for you and I'm happy for that.
Prayers for peace for you on Monday, your Grandmother's 1st Birthday since her passing, I'm glad you'll have someone there with you for support,
Much love & Hugs,
Sandy

Hi dear Anita,
Terrific to hear from you, yes, its been awhile! Love receiving your jokes and fwd.'s, but please don't be a stranger around here, :). Good grief, school start's up again in a month?.....Teachers don't really get much of a holiday, do they!
That's really sweet of you to do that, making a Page for all the Angel kids, I can't send you a picture of my handsome Shane, unfortunately I don't have a Scanner. Please let us know when its finished so we can see it!
Make the most of 'doing nothing' for the next few days, they're hard to come by, :)
Much love & Hugs,
Sandy

Dear Sandy,

No forgiveness is needed. I know you are a busy person and I know your heart. I knew if you couldn't post you would be praying along with Charlene and others. I don't easily get offended. Love, Jane

TO ALL,
Sorry I haven't been here for a while; I'm really in the valley now. Someone very close to me has (I feel) betrayed my trust and really hurt me. I can't go into details here but you can email me if you want to know any more. I'd appreciate all your prayers because I've got to make some major decisions within the next week about this. I ask for God's strength and courage to do the 'right' thing.
Thank you all.
Love you all with many (((HUGS))),
Charlene

Yes, our dear Charlene, I agree in prayer with Jane that God give's you what you need right now and that you're lifted out of the Valley, back into His SONshine,
Much love, prayers & Hugs,

Hi all my dear sisters. I want to thank you all for your so much needed prayers, I am feeling much better and the pain has gone away, I am back to work and will be going back to the doctor tomorrow, he will let me know the results of the biopsy, I know that thanks to your prayers it will turn out just fine.
JOHNNYBT Thanks so much for your beautiful prayer, and thanks for visiting our Circle of Love, may God Bless you always.
My dear Charlene, I am so sorry that you are in the valley, may God wrap His Arms around you and lift you from the valley, my prayers are also with you. My love and prayers to all. Selva

TO ALL,
I just now read all your posts/prayers for me; thank you very much!! Things haven't changed except that I feel much lighter (less burdened) than I did yesterday. I spent the day today with my youngest daughter and her kids, helping her with them all at the dentist. It was a loooooooooooonnnnngggg day and I'm hot and tired, but it was good for me to get out of the house and to focus on someone besides me. I'm taking some steps to help ME when a few years ago I would have thought that was a very selfish thing to do. I've realized (and you all have too I'm sure) that with the trauma of the death of a child/grandchild priorities change drastically and if we don't take care of ourselves, we will go downhill fast physically and emotionally. This is a journey that lasts a million-zillion miles it seems; but one step at a time, one day at a time is all we need to take right now. It helps SO MUCH to have sisters who are like-minded who can pray for each other; we seem to know what the other one is going through and can pray better for each other. THANK YOU ALL!! I'll keep you posted on what I am doing.
Love and (((HUGS))),
Charlene
p.s. One thing I have learned is that I can't get out and work in the flowerbeds for a while; everytime I do the bite that I got flares up in blisters and I have to stay in the house again. So I'm not working outside except to water plants every few days. I don't understand why I can't do what I really like to do, but God has a reason I'm sure. :o)

To all the parents that have lost children. I know the intense pain that never leaves you. I lost my Karise Ann 24 years ago. She was born at 24 weeks and lived 21 days. Some think because I only had her 21 days that I couldn't feel the pain of someone that had a child longer, no true, after all the years when I go to her grave I never reach it without crying. I will miss her everyday of my life. God Bless all of you.

Dearest Lauralee,
How very true!! A child is a child no matter their age and a mother is a mother no matter the age of her child. And 2 people don't have to grieve the same for their grief to be intense and very real. I'm sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing with us. I'm sure some of the moms here understand your pain because they too lost babies at an early age. You are not alone! And you will be prayed for.
Love and (((HUGS))),
Charlene

I wasn't ready for these "Daryl's Birthday" emotions. I made it through Christmas, mother and father's day--but boy, am I down. Any suggestions--any special traditions that might help?


havelost4
7/18/2007 14:58

JOYCE,
I don't know how you celebrated Daryl's birthdays, but you can either do the same thing now or start a new tradition. I buy a rosebud and take it to the cemetery for each of the girls' birthdays. Of course that usually brings the tears, but that's okay. I still miss them and I probably always will. One lady who used to post here had a party anyway and invited all her adult son's friends for the first year BD. She baked all his favorite foods and everyone reminisced about him. She said they had a wonderful time. I'll be praying that you have 'insight' in what you should do that would be good for YOU this year. Whatever you want to do is what's right for you. Even if you choose to do nothing this year, that's okay too. I'll be praying for you.
Love and (((HUGS))),
Charlene

Joyce,

The days leading up to Wes's birthday or any special days are unbearable sometimes. I know you feel the same about Daryl. I sink into prayer and time with God. I try to stay as focused on God as I can so I don't fall. On his birthday, his brothers and I release balloons with messages tied to them. One of his brothers lives in Arizona and we live in California and we try to let them go at the same time. It is helpful because we tell him something and the act of releasing the baloons is almost like releasing him to heaven....I don't know, it seems to work well for me. I usually make Wes's favorite dinner and cake and we have a quiet celebration for him and with him. We have had 2 birthdays without him now. It has not gotten any easier emotion wise. It is so hard like I said in the days leading up to these special days. I try to remember to get the right amount of rest and alone time where I can talk to my son and to God. I am praying for you, that is also very important to know that others are with you. God bless you sister,
Kathy

Lauralee,
I am so sorry for your loss and yes, thank you for sharing with us. Charlene is right, a mother is a mother, the heart break is the same no matter the age of the child. The amount of years that have gone by also has no bearing on the heart....it is still like yesterday for most of us. This is a very hard road we travel and I pray God is with you. Please know that if you need us we are here for you, you can post your thoughts and prayers here and we will be listening.
God bless
Kathy

Charlene, dear sister, I am glad that you did get out of the house for awhile. I know when I get down, that is the last thing I want to do but it does help I think....even if it is a trip to the dentist with all the kids!!
I'm sorry you can't get out in your yard...that is where I go to keep myself busy and to think. Maybe you will need to start and indoor garden :)
My prayers are with you,
Kathy
