How Life Unfolds

My Dearest Friends,

My heart is heavy. My darling husband, my best friend and partner, my love and father of my children, passed away suddenly this past Saturday. Nona, Emma and I love him and miss him so very deeply.

We are days away from returning to the States, preparing ourselves to start a new journey with the knowledge that we are short one very important member of our family. This summer will be a busy one, with new starts in ways we did not imagine. But we will get through this. We are survivors.

I may be away for a few months, getting my girls settled into their new life, but I did not want you to wonder where I went. I hope I will feel the urge to pick up my pencil again soon.

Thank you for all your good wishes. Please know that your friendship brings me great comfort and joy.

With love,
bella

Oh, Bella. I'm so sorry for you sudden loss. As I sit here weeping for you, I pray that God will hold you and your family in the palm of HIS hand and caress your hearts with the peace and comfort that only HE can supply.

May you find comfort in the words of the Holy Scriptures:

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7

I love you and you are in my prayers.

Dear Bella,

I'm at a loss for words. I can't begin to imagine the impact this will have on you and the girls.
I'm glad you're strong. I'm sure a lot of that comes from how loved you are by so many.
Blessings to your beloved husband, wherever he may be.
Blessings and peace to you and your girls. I'll hold you all in my heart.

May your journey back to the states be gentle and healing.

Arija said...

Bella, what devastating news. I am aghast at your unfathomable loss. Survival is the strongest human instinct, the only reason my father survived 15 years in a Siberian gulag. He said when all else is taken away, the survival instict kicks in.
You certainly have your hands full with organising the move and resettlement. At this time I most of all wish you strenght to cope with all the mundane tasks that have to be performed as well as being a rock for your girls and sharing your communal loss. Let them be partof your grieving as well.
I envelop your family in a big hug and my blessing. If for any reason you should need a shoulder or just to off load, my shoulders are broad and my mail box copious.

Everything that happens in life has a reason which only becomes known much later.

The Weaver (anonymous)

My life is but a weaving
between my Lord and me
I cannot choose the colours
he worketh steadily.

Oftentimes he weaveth sorrow
and I, in foolish pride
forget that He seeth the upper
and I the under side.

Not till the loom is silent,
and the shuttles cease to fly,
shall God unroll the canvass
and explain the reason why

the dark threads are as needful
in the weaver's skillful hand,
as the threads of gold and silver
in the pattern He has planned.

My love and blessings go with you
Arija

jcdillustration said...

Bella, I am so sorry. I can't even imagine... You are probably worried about the kids. I'm no expert but I lost my mom when I was in college and my bro/sis were teenagers. It will be tough but you'll get through it one day at a time and it will get better. You are so loving and supportive and your kids are so lucky to have such a wonderful mom. I am sending you many hugs and love. -Jenn.

Jen Anderson said...

I am so sorry for your loss.

Baino said...

OH Bella, kj just emailed me with your terrible news. It must have been so hard for you to write this post but good to know that you didn't leave without a word.

I know exactly what you're going through having been there myself and my heart is truly broken for you. It's a difficult time for everyone but your children will be your rock. Trust me on that one, mine were my reason for getting out of bed every morning when I felt like wasting away.

Use the support you're offered, it's a lifeline and if you feel the need to share, you can email me any time. Like I said, been there done that and sometimes those who haven't find it hard to empathise. Wishing you a safe journey back into the arms of family and friends.

Very Dearest Bella - With all my heart I send my love to you and your two beautiful girls. I wish deeply for the peace of healing for you and for the memories of your darling husband to be your strength.

You have bought so very much to us here in the Blogosphere and, although we are all scattered across this world of ours, we have loved and laughed with you and revelled in your generosity of spirit. I know we will do so again, but until that time please take our love and let it help you heal. You are, Bella, a builder of strong and sturdy bridges.... how blessed we are to know you.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

I came to your blog via KJ's blog...to leave my words of condolence and encouragement during this sad time.

I, too, lost my husband suddenly and while it has been just over two years, I still miss him dearly, but as unbelievable as it seems, time has healed me some.

To have to make the move and face the future without him is overwhelming, but I wish you and your daughters the peace and love to endure.

Your drawing are wonderful, sweet and filled with love.

Ps: this is my blog in memory of my husband

Ces said...

You,
No one I ever so loved
So admired
And respected
Adored
And endeared.
It hurts to think that
My Sweet Bella Sinclair is in pain and sorrow.
You,
My beloved sister-friend.
My confidante.
My muse.
My inspiration.
My scarlet Fiesta in the snow
You are the force that directs
Me to open the cadmium red and orange pigments
You are my gentle brush strokes
You open my bright eyes
And tilt my shoulder.
You are the pigment ink squiggles
And lines that form my trees
On my Bristol boards.
My heart crumbled,
And then I remembered
It is your great loss.
And the best thing I can do
Is be here and be strong for you
And wait
When you are ready
To reach out and say
“Hey! Hey! Hey!
Can you come out and play?”
I’ll be here Honey,
Like I always have been,
You know, I never left.

Barbara/myth maker said...

My deepest sympathy to you and your children. I am so sorry.

Deborah said...

Dearest Bella, lifting you up in prayer, never ceasing. May The Lord, God, send Angels to carry you and your little ones to higher ground...I have no words, just prayers and love. Deborah

Holly said...

Bella:
No one we have ever loved is lost to us, even though our frail Human vision would sometimes lead us to wrongly believe.

Nothing we have ever believed so strongly in, such as a love that you and your husband share, is ever beyond our heart's reach.

I hope in the coming days, you have many opportunities to be reminded that you are never alone. And, love remains constant.

A friend, through Sarah,
Holly

Audrey said...

Bella, I am so sorry for you and your children. The world is such a confusing place at the best of times, but when we lose someone we love well, that is the most confusing/frightening/lonely time of all. I can only imagine what you are going through, and I pray that you are able to make your way relatively easily through the next few days. They will be difficult ones.

I don't know you Bella, but I am so touched by your tragedy, and I want you to know that you have many, many wonderful bloggie friends/acquaintances/friends of friends who are all walking beside you in your sorrow. We are here to support you and catch you when you fall. Big hugs to you and your children. May your husband rest in peace.

joanne said...

having been so inspired by your art, and by the comments i have seen you leave at blogs such as aimee's, i just wanted to reach out to add my heart to your blog space here... in the hope that you can somehow feel some measure of comfort surrounding you in this online world (with obviously so many who care so deeply for you)... though on the one hand it can seem like we are all strangers to one another, on the other hand we share so many common bonds and a depth of care for one another that perhaps doesn't always come through until life becomes so much more "real" for one of us, as it has for you... and in this way we really are one community no different than if we knew each other in person...

even in the middle of your pain, you continue to inspire with your words, your art and your heart...

i'm wishing you safety in your travels, and a gentle space to rest in and receive your tears...

RockerJewlz said...

It is so kind of you to think of all of us, knowing we would be terribly worried if you stopped writing without explanation.

The strength and hope and direction you expose in your letter to us is a sign that you know what you must do, even in your grief, to keep life rolling ahead for you and your girls.

Just envision all of us who read your blog right behind you in a huge, quite crowd, ready to catch you when you fall and to pick you up, steady your feet and help you take one more step.

All of our support and strength is right there with you and the girls

Dear Bella, Nona, Emma
Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow.
May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
Remember that we care about you."

Arija said...

Bella my heart, my loss is as nothing to yours as you bear the double load of both parents on your shoulders, especially with the transplanting of your family.
I offer you all the Mother Earth strength at my disposal to help you through. Please know you are deeply locked within my heart, a capacious place where you may draw from the well of peace and well-being always. The more is taken, the more there is to take...

Ces said...

Dearest Bella!

I am giving every love my heart can give to you, Nona and Emma as you embark on your new journey. Take every bit of it including more that you need, it will never run out.

I am always with you and you are always with me.

Travel safely.

Know you are deeply loved.

Renee said...

Bella, dear Bella:

I was just thinking that if there really is a Heaven or some other place; that on this Father's Day my dear Dad would go and take your loving husband by the hand and help him to find his way.

They would be less scared that way if they could be together. But I have to warn you, my Dad will corrupt him in no time.

Love Renee xoxo

Bella, I hope I don't offend you when I say I'm absolutely shocked. Obviously I can't say I know anything at all about your family, but you still felt like a part of mine, simply by being such a wonderful blogger. We are all so, so sorry. You know that. And we'll be here when you come back.

You have been such a kind and gentle friend to me this past year through my Mother's illness. I want to extend my strength and love to you. Don't stay away too long. We love you and want to be supportive in any way that we can.

With heartfelt love and support,

Dearest Bella

I am stunned to learn of the death of your husband and so very sorry that I have not been in touch till now. I have been out of KL for a month and have had few opportunities to keep up with blogging friends - just received a message from Renee and rushed right over to your blog and read your terribly sad message. Bella, I wish you and your daughters much strength at this sad time. You are in my thoughts.
With love, Caroline

messyfish said...

I have been offline now for over a month due to technical problems, and I have only just started blogging again. I thought..."where is Bella?". so I came over here, to see what you have been up to, and just read your sad news. I am so sorry for your loss, and have no comforting words, except you are missed, and valued by me and I hope that you can find a way for your art to help heal the pain. If we are lucky enough for you to share that with us, then so be it, but your healing and your peace in the world is paramount. Take care fellow blogger, I hope we connect again soon. xxx

Eric Barclay said...

It is with a heavy heart that I learn about the loss of your husband. Know that my thoughts will be with you as you and your daughters return to a different life back in the States.
My thoughts will be with you and I hope you will be able to return to blogland sooner rather than later.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Hey there My Soul Sister, I was thinking about you and girls. Gosh I how we all miss you so very. very, very, much. I just called to say I love you and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I read all the sweet comments left by all our blogger family and I am moved to tears when I think about your heart aching. Your girls. You and the girls are now on a new journey. One that you didn't expect and didn't want. We are here if and when you need us. Ces, Renee, Diana, and a whole host of others loving you through one of the toughest times in your life. I think of you each and everyday my sister. Ces, gave me one of the great awards on last week. The "Bella Sinclair Award". I was so very honored and moved again to tears. This touched my hearts in ways that she and yes YOU will never ever know. I count it an honor and privilege to receive such a grand award. Please know that you are always on my heart, in my prayers and laughing in my thoughts. Love you the most Girl.

Karen from A`Musements said...

Dear Bella,
I just found you and your blog, so I am heartsick to read this post and know that you and your children are in such pain.

I can't imagine how difficult these days and nights must be for you and your girls. And words just don't seem to be enough to express how sorry I am for your loss.... your immense loss.

Wishing you and your daughters light and love and a sense of peace, knowing that nothing and no one can replace your husband, their father.

All my love and sincere sympathy,
Karen
