I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Bizarre..the tree

On the last day of James life,whilst we were driving back to the hospital,we had to stop at a roundabout.All of a sudden right beside the car,there was an almighty
CRRAAAAKKKKK and the tree not 10ft away,split right through the middle.For NO reason!
It was freaky! We all looked at each other and took it as a sign that James had fallen and I was left standing.
I dont usually see signs but it made me realise that I would carry on no matter what.I would not fall..

No, dear Butterfly you will not fall- for we your friends and family are the roots that hold you firmly in the grasp of the rain, wind and weather and we do our best to nurture you through our soul food ( or is that soil food) to keep you strong.

Perhaps you should plant a seedling close to the divided tree to show that not only are you still standing, but you continue to grow because of the love from the big tree's example.

I think about you each and every day dear Butterfly. I wish we were close enough to walk in the morning light and into a warm afternoon sharing our thoughts, our fears and our dreams. Remember I am close in spirit.Always,

Ah yes, signs. You know I believe strongly in them (must be my Irish/Native American heritage). This was definately a very strong sign. I believe you interpreted it correctly. You will never fall for just as 4 said, we are all the roots that hold you strong. Just as you are the roots that hold me strong. I, too, think planting a tree as a symbol of your strength is a wonderful idea. Perhaps one that flowers so that each Spring it will burst forth in color to signify your survival, strength, & rebirth into this new life. Also, it would be a symbol of James' everlasting life in Heaven, and an ever present reminder, to others, of the strong undying love & faith you two shared.
I love you my dearest sister-friend. You are forever in my thoughts & heart. I am beside you in spirit always.

Blessed be...

It was a good sign. But your strength has been visable all along the journey. We know the journey will go on.

yeah, that was pretty freaky.

I'm glad you see it as a good sign. I KNOW for a fact that you will fall. You are one of the strongest people I know.

Hi there, I have read all your posts right down to your Febuary entries and, suffice to say, you have been on such a roller coaster ride...huggs to you :)
In all that you have written, I can see you are actually a strong and loving person. Your honey reflected that in his love letter to you.
I think it is wonderful you choose a different picture of him when you get to your PC each day..he will not be forgotten. How can he? With all that love everyone has conveyed, he had to have made such a difference to people he touched. Well, you do too you know.
Look after yourSELF, allow the good and the bad days to go by. It is a good sign this tree having given way...GIVEN WAY to you to now go on and be YOU. Perhaps it wasn't a fall, no less than it was your honey giving way to you.

BTW, the wedding pic is so lovely, the smiles are just sooo wide :)
