People are cruel and thoughtless. Wish I was closer to you. Love to give you a big hug.

You are a great human Sherry.

That’s good that your friend apologized before she even got your letter. It shows that she thought about the situation and understands that her behavior was hurtful.

I wrote her first, and then she apologized.

Sorry - I saw your post from yesterday that said “I did write her this morning”, so knowing she wouldn’t have had time to get your letter yet, I assumed she had thought it over on her own and realized she had been hurtful. The important thing is that she DID apologize.

Thank you FOLV and Gams.
Interestingly my now husband and I first bonded over grief. He lost his very young daughter very suddenly about 10 years ago.

Another thought….These past 18 months have been challenging for everyone to say the least. Perhaps those who’ve let you down, and I agree that they have let you down, could be struggling with their own issues.…depression, grief, loss of job or income, fear of travel, lack of solid coping skills…..the list of possibilities goes on. It’s not an excuse, but could be an explanation….

We should all try to be kinder and more forgiving. I appreciate your thoughtful, and insightful, response.

This is very old, but still applicable:

If We Knew

If we knew the cares and crosses
Crowding round our neighbor’s way;
If we knew the little losses,
Sorely grievous day by day,
Would we then so often chide him
For the lack of thrift and gain-
Casting o’er his life a shadow,
Leaving on his heart a stain.

If we knew the silent story
Quivering through the heart of pain,
Would our womanhood dare doom them
Back to haunts of guilt again?

Life hath many a tangled crossing.
Joy hath many a break of woe,
And the cheeks tear washed seem whitest,
This the blessed angels know.

Let us reach into our bosoms
For the key to other lives,
And with love to erring nature,
Cherish good that still survives;
So that when our disrobed spirits
Soar to realms of light again,

We may say, dear Father, judge us
As we judged our fellowmen.
Anon

‘Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say
Because of some good act to beast or man—
The world is better that I lived today.

Unhappy

thank you Karla25.

I shouldn't have commented in this thread.

I'm sorry if I said anything harmful.

I must have let my guard down and wasn't close to Jesus.

I just knew of a similar pain of loss of friends.

I wish you well Sherry. Forgive them for they know not what they do.

This turned into a judgement on someone we know nothing about.

All I can say is FORGIVE
