Don’t do it! by Melody Cox https://thesmarttview.com/2016/11/11/christmas-decorating-dont-do-it/comment-page-1/#comment-692 Sat, 12 Nov 2016 21:05:17 +0000 http://thesmarttview.com/?p=516#comment-692 I agree wholeheartedly. We can’t get through one holiday before plans for the next are in full swing. Where is the focus on what really matters? This year I heard Christmas ‘stuff’ was out in September in some stores. Slow down peeps and take a deep breath. Enjoy today before worrying about next week or next month.

Comment on When Mother’s Day Brings Pain by Rennah Robinson https://thesmarttview.com/2014/05/11/when-mothers-day-brings-pain/comment-page-1/#comment-654 Mon, 09 May 2016 17:50:23 +0000 http://thesmarttview.com/?p=278#comment-654 Thank you Lisa for this article. I am one of the ones that tried to do the best I could raising my children, waited so long for grandchildren so we could have that big get together with family. Well I got all that only to be taken away from me. I only had twin boys, they were married a week apart. Gained 2 grandsons along with one of the daughter in laws, had 4 more grandchildren, 1 grandson born with severe disabilities, but we had a big family at last with lots of love, well one son divorced, lost daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons, disabled grandson passed away, other son and family moved away and now are getting a divorce! I don’t know whether it is worse to never have something and want it or to have something and lose it. By the way during all this time my dad was killed, and my husband lost his job of 20 years. This all happened in 8 years! I have give it all to God and have the faith that he is in control and I control nothing, but sadness creeps in every once in awhile!!
Again Thank you so much for this article!

For 3 years I did not attend church for Mother’s Day. because it was too painful. I always wanted a loving family and 4 children, and I will always miss not having that. I LOVE my students, nieces and nephews, but I always come home to an empty house. God is good as one of your friends said, but I still feel sad…not depressed, just sad. I look forward to the day when there is no sadness and no more weeping. Anita

My husband and I went through years of infertility treatments, several miscarriages, and then adopted a beautiful little girl. We then were able to give birth to two beautiful kids. I am adopted and I think of the woman I will never know in Korea. I think if the adopted Mom who never really loved me like she did my sister. Now she is in heaven and there will never be resolution. This day brings a jumble of emotions. Thank you for your beautifully written piece.
