The Love Bug
I've just spent the last few hours looking through my journal posts from when I started my journal (31/05/2000) up until the end of last year (31/12/2001).
There are a lot of good and lifechanging memories in there. I even started to cry when I got to a certain post in August.
I've seen a lot of changes in myself in the last 2 and a bit years since I started my journal, and on the whole I'm happy with what I've seen.
If you can judge your success in life by the way you handle and respond to the things that life throws at you, then I think I've succeeded.
Goodnight and God Bless

That is one of the things I love so much about LJ...I have seen a lot inmyself too, in the 1 year I have had mine.
Some of the changes I like, some I do not like, but also I have been through a lot lately which I am not quite ready to write about but it has given me such a different perspective on life and where I am going with it. I randomly look back on a few of my posts and although getting to where I am now was hard these last few months, I know it is and will be all for the better.
And regarding your liked post - I was tearing up with you. *hug*. I was in a similar situation last year, and I loved the poem at the end - oh how I wish I had that then. It is somehting I am definitely going to write down and save.
Goodnight to you as well and all the best to you and yours. :)
So that means you and I have known each other nearly a year now. I had a feeling it was soon. The first anniversary of the loss of an important family member is always difficult, time to reflect on that year without them. We're coming up for two years without my Granny, who was the centre of our universe. Still seems kinda strange without her.
I'm glad we got to know each other. You and Caroline are two very important peole to me :-)
You made me cry too, I can relate to a lot of that post.
It's something I've thought about a lot over recent years, it is quite amazing how different people react to different situations, no one way is better than any other of course but I have been astounded at the different ways my family has reacted to times like that. Almost like we are all in tune with one another and can switch roles as needed.
When my Nanna died I was a lot younger than you were but I was glad I was there for her final moments. I am glad I had that moment because she died so much more peacefully than my Mum and she died at our home which is what she wanted, sometimes I think that was God's way of preparing me for what was to come later and giving me a chance to see that death is not something to be feared and a body is just a body.
Thanks for sharing that with us, Dave.
