The Long and Winding Road (announcement)

It's funny how Beatles songs were playing every time we left my mom after visiting hours. This was the first of like two dozen. Several people commented on it. Usually they were ones she (&/or we) loved, and most we remember her singing. She was such an awesome singer.

I'm going to be writing the whole story. Not so much her story, as my story with her. A lot of this is likely to be emotional and locked away. I'm sure I'll be creating a special Christy filter. I know I have several wonderful new people who have been checking in through friends or communities. If you're interested in continuing the Christy(Amanda) story with me, just please add me first and let me know. I'll be honored and delighted to give you access.

Thank you guys so much for all the support. I was very close to my mom, and this has really been the hardest thing I've ever done. I'm so grateful for all the loving energy. I honestly might have turned feral without it.

I'm looking forward to your story. When you're ready to hear about it, let me know I'll tell you the visions of your mom that came through during the first days of your struggle... I think you'll find them comforting.

I'm always ready. I'd really appreciate it.

I would like to hear.

I am always glad to hear your story.

I hope you feel comfortable enough to keep me on that filter. You have always been so there for me and I want to return that favor. Ah, the Beetles sing to my soul ever since Lynn's passing.

I am here to support you. My LJ friends (you included) were a big help in my battle during mom's last days and I am here for anything you need. Except money, cause everybody's broke right now ;)

I'm glad you think so. I always feel so lost for words when people are suffering from loss. Although now it seems like it's awfully nice just to know people actually care.

Knowing people care really helps. But don't be afraid to say when you need to be by yourself. That was really the hardest part for me - like on Mother's Day when half of mom's old friends called me to tell me they knew how hard it was for me but really I just wanted them to let me be so I could quit thinking about it.

Words are never any good - hugs work much better.

and poigniant for me that the only song i picked up on was when "imagine" was playing... (notices mysirensong's icon all of a sudden. 8-O )

i'd love to read all your herstories and learn more about both you and your mum.

"I honestly might have turned feral without it." ack, going feral's a good thing. ;)

You are such an amazingly strong person. I've seen that over and over again in the years we've been friends on here.
I am so impressed with your ability to keep yourself through all of this.

I definitely look forward to reading your story.

Wow, I'm so glad you think so. I'm honored. I haven't really felt that way at all lately, although I've been trying awfully hard. Thank you so much.

Hey sweetheart... I'm here for you always.. I hope you know that. I can only imagine what you've been dealing with. I am honoured to call you friend and you are an inspiration of strength in adverse times. xoxoxo

i'd love to be on the filter.

stay strong. (:

You are so much stronger than you realize...a trait that i'm sure you got from your mom.

Much love.
