Thank you for your honest, experienced understanding about human and spiritual relationships in the midst of struggle and fear. Life is not just bearable, but there can be peace in the midst of turmoil, once we realize that the love we feel for others is the same love God feels for us. Love suffers and struggles, needs patience and care, and only He is perfect at it.
You have a gift for relating all that in simple form and style. It blesses me.

I do have a few suggestions, but they're just my thinking... :)


'I felt so helpless as she paced and cried(, a)s she held the trash can heaving.'
'She doubled over clutching her stomach(,) suffering from panic induced vertigo.'
'She wanted her mom's physical presence(,) but barring that(,) her voice.'
'Isn't that the way it goes(?)
'...a prayer away(; at) the scariest moments...'
I only suggest the semi-colon because the last statement is not a complete
sentence.

This is a wonderful non-fiction write, Sandy. I know you have written of Gwen before and it must be challenging for the family and for little Gwen, too. I identify with her wanting her mom, and, as you say, WE as adults wanting our own mom for comfort. Knowing God is there for us brings calm and respite. Good job with this post. Marilyn

Hi, Sandy;
I imagine it was agony for you to simply watch and not be able to do anything. I suffered from anxiety attacks when I was young, but my family just believed I was crazy. No one tried to comfort me, and I learned to self-soothe. I'm glad you were there for your niece,

I'm glad you know that God is with you always. Sometimes, He's all the comfort we have and certainly all we need.

Lovely written story. It would have fitted in good in the "Shout Outs to the Lord" club.

Sandy, This is a great true story you have penned my friend. You are so right in that God is all that we truly need. He is right here for us always. I am so sorry your niece has those panic attacks. It has to be scary for her. Great write my friend! May God bless you and her too! love, Teri

Sandy,

What a marvelous story (not the part about your niece, of course) and fabulous, fabulous message. Wonderfully done. Wonderful.

I really enjoyed this - as you can see. *smile* Such a smart and good and kind and loving lady you are. I'm so happy to know you. Big hugs --

I feel for Gwen. It must be horrible to hurt and not know how to express what one is feeling. Hug her to you and just let her know how much you care about her. Patricia

Please put a space between the paragraphs for easier reading. Otherwise, it is exceptionally written and I can feel the emotional tenseness in your voice. I have to talk my daughter down from her panic attacks.

Thanks for creating a spiritual lesson out of a real life situation. So glad that your niece is able to sleep. Yes, the best thing is to find comfort in God and pray.

The following is a clause and needs a main clause to complete a sentence:
"When you don't know what to do and there are no warm hugs or snug laps to seek comfort in. "
