“Hi guys, it's Amanda. I'm just calling because I've gotten several calls and I know people are wondering haven't been able to get online in a while but yeah a lot of ___ coming to ___ me. You will be hearing in detail. I just want to let you guys know that Josh and I went ahead and got married on Friday. We had all the family there from my mom's side and we just went up and did it at mom's room and Saturday we went ahead and pull the life support because we knew that mom never wanted to be on life support and then she held out until Mother's Day morning and she passed on about 5:25 Mother's Day morning by about the same time she was always getting ready to get up and go to work and I think some ___ that's important. At any rate thank you for all the prayers and well wishes and for those of you who were my my dumping partners. Thank you for letting me just laid everything out on you and so I'll tell you all about it later. I love you guys. Bye.”

Thank you! *love back*
May. 14th, 2008 04:45 pm (UTC)
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how it feels to loose your mom and there is no words to help. ::Hugs::
May. 17th, 2008 01:03 am (UTC)
Thank you so much. It was really hard, but we definitely appreciate all the thoughts and prayers.
May. 14th, 2008 04:47 pm (UTC)
Awe sweetie. Well congrats on the marriage (I'm sure the wedding will follow one day when you are ready) and I'm sorry for the loss of your mom. xoxo
May. 17th, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
Thank you very much. We'll probably end up doing the wedding faster than I anticipated. The girls are still really wanting it, so I think we'll probably try to do it in the next month or two.
May. 14th, 2008 04:54 pm (UTC)
Oh honey, HUGS to you and to your family. I'm so very sorry that you are going thru all this.
May. 17th, 2008 01:17 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!
May. 14th, 2008 04:57 pm (UTC)
Thinking of you and wishing you strength through this time in your life. I am so grateful that you have lahermite there close by. She knows first hand what you're going through. I'm sending you energies and tons of love and light.

May. 17th, 2008 01:21 am (UTC)
Thanks so much - I definitely needed (and used) the strength. I'm also pretty grateful for lahermite. I've definitely had a wonderful outpouring of love and support. It's been a definite help.
May. 14th, 2008 05:12 pm (UTC)
My condolences sweetheart, may you find a lot of strength. I am glad she got to witness your wedding at least ♥
May. 17th, 2008 01:22 am (UTC)
Thank you. I'm really glad we did it there with her. I hope it was a healing ceremony for the family. That was our intent, anyway.
May. 14th, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)
all our love.

i'm so happy you and Josh were able to still get married..

losing a parent is devastating... i'm so sorry.

May. 17th, 2008 01:24 am (UTC)
I'm pretty happy that we did it, too. If nothing else, I certainly know I picked the right guy to marry. It's been so hard, but it's definitely brought us together in ways I never imagined possible.

It was hard losing her, but at the end, I was able to be happy for her. I know she's free and no longer in pain, so I was able to celebrate as much as I could for her. That's what she wanted.

Thanks so much.
May. 14th, 2008 05:43 pm (UTC)

I'm so sorry.
May. 17th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
Thanks so very much.
May. 14th, 2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
You are all in my thoughts.

May. 17th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
We definitely appreciate it. Thank you.
May. 14th, 2008 06:11 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, Amanda. *hugs* *tears*
May. 17th, 2008 01:27 am (UTC)
*clings back, with many tears*

Ok, I'm only going to let myself do that once. Ah, but it was needed. I've been trying to celebrate for her, like she wanted. I've succeeded a bit, but still only a little. Trying real hard.
May. 14th, 2008 07:03 pm (UTC)
Love you!
May. 17th, 2008 01:28 am (UTC)
Aw, thank you so much! I love you too.
May. 14th, 2008 07:18 pm (UTC)
Oh I'm so sorry.
May. 17th, 2008 01:28 am (UTC)
Thank you.

I've felt like your icon all week. I may snag it, if you don't mind.

*big hugs* You and your family are in my thoughts.
May. 17th, 2008 01:29 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! Keep us there a little while longer. I think we're on the mend, though. I hope.

"Our death is our wedding with eternity.
What is the secret? "God is One."
The sunlight splits when entering the windows of the house.
This multiplicity exists in the cluster of grapes;
It is not in the juice made from the grapes.
For he who is living in the Light of God,
The death of the carnal soul is a blessing.
Regarding him, say neither bad nor good,
For he is gone beyond the good and the bad.
Fix your eyes on God and do not talk about what is invisible,
So that he may place another look in your eyes.
It is in the vision of the physical eyes
That no invisible or secret thing exists.
But when the eye is turned toward the Light of God
What thing could remain hidden under such a Light?
Although all lights emanate from the Divine Light
Don't call all these lights "the Light of God";
It is the eternal light which is the Light of God,
The ephemeral light is an attribute of the body and the flesh.
...Oh God who gives the grace of vision!
The bird of vision is flying towards You with the wings of desire."

- Rumi

*love, Light and hugs*

Thank you! Did you see my Rumi post from last week? I think I used that one. I really like it. Rumi totally gave me words when I didn't have any. Mom was probably the closest thing to Shams that I ever had, although Josh is sure that this is just the start of what we'll see from my mom. I hope he's right.

Much love to you as well. *hugs tightly* Thank you for the poem.
May. 14th, 2008 09:18 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry. But congratulations on your marriage.
May. 17th, 2008 01:33 am (UTC)
Thank you very much.
May. 14th, 2008 09:28 pm (UTC)
Congratulations on your marriage. I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I could say more. You are all in my thoughts.

May. 17th, 2008 01:34 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! It's definitely been and up-and-down crazy week. Your thoughts and hugs are plenty.
May. 14th, 2008 10:08 pm (UTC)
Oh hon, I'm so sorry.
I'm glad you were able to get married with your mom there.
May. 17th, 2008 01:35 am (UTC)
Thank you. Me too. I'm really glad we went ahead and did it.
May. 14th, 2008 10:37 pm (UTC)

I guess that there is nothing like transition to align oneself to what one needs, right?

May. 17th, 2008 01:36 am (UTC)
Thank you! I hope you're right.

People ask if I feel any different, and yeah. Totally.
May. 14th, 2008 11:51 pm (UTC)
*hugs* At least she was there...know you're in my prayers, honey.
May. 17th, 2008 01:40 am (UTC)
My deepest thanks. Please keep them coming. It still gets a bit rough.
May. 15th, 2008 12:13 am (UTC)

*back atcha*
May. 15th, 2008 12:22 am (UTC)
*Hugs* Congratulations and condolences. I'm glad you went ahead with your wedding in your Mom's presence (I'm sure she would be 'present' regardless...). I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are still with you and your family. *sending you my love*
May. 17th, 2008 01:43 am (UTC)
That's so weird, but you put it best. It has been 'congratulations and condolences' all week. Surreal. But my deepest thanks. I felt she would have been there regardless, but I really hope that our ceremony was healing (either for her or the family). I'm really glad we did it.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. Please keep them coming. Seems like the after red-tape is even harder sometimes. We appreciate all the love we've been getting!
May. 15th, 2008 02:54 am (UTC)
I have been thinking about you so much, and checking your journal every time I get online. I have no words to describe what I want to say - but I'm sending so much love and light. (((Amanda)))
May. 17th, 2008 01:44 am (UTC)
You're too sweet! I'm sorry I haven't been able to keep up more. I have so much to say, but seems like so little time to get it out. I definitely hope it will be coming. I'm glad you're checking in on me. *much love*
May. 15th, 2008 03:38 am (UTC)
:wraps her arms around you and sends you lots of love: I hurt for you honey.

I'll light candles and send you lots and lots of positive energy.
May. 17th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
*big hugs*

Thank you so much. I appreciate all of it.
May. 15th, 2008 04:23 am (UTC)
Bittersweet. Congratulations on the marriage. SIncere condolences for your loss.
May. 17th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
Thank you very much.
May. 15th, 2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
Such mingled grief and joy. . .

Blessings to you and all your family during this difficult journey.

May you find comfort in the faith that your mother is safe in the embrace of the Beloved.
May. 17th, 2008 01:46 am (UTC)
Thanks so much. I do feel happier for her. I suppose that couldn't have happened if I hadn't been there with her all week. I know she wanted us to celebrate her passing, and I've been trying real hard to do so. We appreciate all the love though.
