Thank you

 Dear friends,
Thank you very much for your kind words in the comments which I have received the past weeks.
It is still very hard for me to be alone and I cry much tears now and then.
But I have to go on with my life and be strong. I promised Simon.
I hope I have the time and spirit to take up the sewing needles the coming week.
Hugs, Ati.

Dearest Ati- you have been in my thoughts all the time. What wonderful photos, I feel so privileged that you have shared them with us. You have some amazing memories and photos to give you strength, I am sure - and of course your children too.

You are being so very strong, and I so admire you.

I hope that you can take some small comfort in the fact that 'we' in the blog world - although strangers in the flesh - will support you as though you lived next door to us - and will continue to do so.

You and your family are in our prayers.

Dearest blog friend Ati, it was with such sadness that I read these last posts, how sad for you to lose your best friend, but take some comfort knowing he is at peace. I am sure the next weeks will be difficult for you, but know that we in blog-land are here for you and are thinking of you often. Love and BIG hugs, Shiree NZ

dear Ati, you are being very strong . . . listen to yourself as to what you need to do but remember your promise to Simon as that will help you to move forward, when you are ready. Take care and I hope you will feel like stitching soon. You could make something in Simon's memory and that would be healing and help you. An idea . . . love, lenna

Dear Ati,
You are brave and strong and keeping your promise to Simon, Stitching will come when it's time to start and help in the healing process.

Remember He's always with you! Take some time to cry, and You'll meet again! Lots of hugs and prayers, can be done just not easy; been healing 3 years now STILL some good days & BAD

Julie said...

Ati, I lost my husband when I was just 43 and I know how difficult this time is. Hold your promise to Simon close and take your time to find your way. You will come back to stitching when you are ready and Lenna has a good idea when the time is right. Simon's love will always be part of you even though he is not physically close. You are doing really well. Hugs
Julie xx

Ati, I admire your courage and the strength that you have. Losing your best friend as well as the love of your life is never easy. Just know that all your memories will keep you warm in your heart in the days to come. May you find joy in your memories that will ease the sadness of your heart. May you find peace in the gentle reminders in your home and outside in your garden that your sweet Simon made for you. May the whisper of Simon's love for you abound more now than ever before. I will continue to lift you up before the Lord for peace, rest and strength. May your heart be filled will joy soon my blogging friend and may you once again feel laughter in your heart. Many blessing sent your way. Wendy

Oh dear Ati

My heart goes out to you and
I wish I could comfort you with words, but I know they are not enough.
It will be a hard journey for you - taking just one day at a time.

Please take heart that you have so many friends wanting to comfort you and to ease your pain.

With love and gentle healing hugs dearest Ati.

Hello Ati
I have been away from the blogs and just saw this post. I am so sorry. Since my husband's health is not the best, I worry all the time that I will be left behind. I cannot imagine your pain. There are stages of grief that you must go through in order to heal. I pray you meet and conquer them quickly.
xx, Carol

Oh my dear dear Ati. This is the bad thing about not reading blogs all Summer long.

I am so so terribly sorry that you lost your best love. I am crying here for you...I cannot imagine how terribly sad and alone you must feel. I only hope that my feeling and bearing the smallest bit of your grief will help ease your load a little.

You are so lucky to have shared your life with such a wonderful and handsome man and love.

Lots of love to you...dear dear girl...Susan
