looking for Motherly advice

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

What do you say to mend the broken heart of this sweet girl?

She broke up with a nasty boyfriend.
She lost her Granny 9 days ago and she loved her Granny so much.
And her new crush crushed her heart tonight.

Everything I say sounds so lame to me. I just wish that she could see how special she is and that someday someone will see her for what I see. Fun loving, beautiful and compassionate young woman.

I really wish my Mom was alive to give me some advice tonight.
Tonight I am really missing my mother and my mother in law.
:( Jeanne

    Sorry to hear about the bad luck, when these sort of things happen I look up at God and ask him this wasn't meant to be was it? Just move on and perhaps Mr Right will fall over this sweet girl when she least bargains it. I was 28 when I met my husband by snail mail, I was looking for just penpals but the magazine put me in the singles, I was drowned with replies.. However my dad opened a window and a letter flew around the room from a huge pile that poured into our mail box, I read it and found the love of my life.. Robby was funny and kind and didn't dress especially neat but a heart of Gold he did have.. We only got 12 years before God called him back home, but I see his smile on the face of my youngest baby.. Just keep looking and mister right doesn't have to look like a knight in shining armour. Humble, witty and a huge patience are also good things to look out for. I got a wonderful man, whom could cook, clean, change nappies and have them happy when I got in the door from. He was a stay at home dad, becauseĀ“of his diabetes. If he was alive to day I would give him the world, never met anyone like him since... Hugs Rena

    Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of Toad's to find your prince charming. You are both in the early stages of grief for her grandmother. I found it helped me to go out in the woods by myself and have a good cry. I spent some time just saying why, why now? Then after I blew my nose, I got out all the little things she gave me or that reminded me of her. I had some pictures of us together. I let the memories roll. I did not have a notebook with me, but I would have loved to write down some of the stories that came to mind. I know my grandma was with me and approved. We had a great time together. I am the woman I am today because I lived through all the hurts, disappointments, challenges and times of want that I have. My favorite song is Little Flowers (Steve Archer sings it) part of it says Lord help me learn the secret that even little flowers know. If it never rains, then I will never, never grow. tina emoticon

    I've been there. I've had my heart broke once or twice. I didn't get married until I was knocking on the door of 30 (29-1/2 to be exact). But looking back now at 32, I am so glad I had those years of being single.
    I bought my first house, travelled to countries where they don't speak english, bought a car EXACTLY how I wanted it, and so much more. At the time, I didn't realize what a blessing it was to be able to chase my own dreams without having to worry about how it affected someone else. I love my husband, but I'll never regret those years or wish he had come along sooner. It taught me what a great person I am, just how God made me.
    I look at my Mom and wish she had been able to live that experience. She's 50-something and now living alone for the first time, since Dad recently died. She's having to learn things in the middle of grief that I learned in my 20's, like who to call when the water heater breaks and that sometimes being alone doesn't have to mean being lonely.
    If I had your beautiful daughter, I would try to encourage her to use this time to get to know herself. She'll act like you're crazy and won't fully understand. But maybe a little bit of it will seep into her subconscious.
    God bless her and you!

    What a beautiful girl!
    Oh, that first broken heart hurts so bad.
    Just love her, hug her and it will pass.

    What a beautiful young woman! Like Kate said "I love you" and "I'm sorry" are the best things to say, and lots of hugs to go with them. Those kids will realize someday just what a prize they missed out on, and by then she will have found someone who will treasure her for who she is. It's their loss, not hers!

    You have said the only tow things you can say "I love you" and "I am so sorry this happened to you"

    If only we Mommies had magic wands to wave over our children and give them perfect, beautiful, happy lives with no pain and no tears. Ahh, but that wouldn't be living, would it?

    I am sorry for you pain and yours. Keep on hugging her. And give her one from me. emoticon
