i remember being young and having my mom alive even though she passed last year it seems like shes been gong a lot longer as she was seriously ill for the last 15 years and i took care of her at home.. i was sitting here listening to a bob seger song and he was singing about being young again and all the fun he had.. and i was sitting thinking about when she was younger and when i was about 15 how much fun i had with my friends.. i didnt care what happened and always was happy go lucky.. i took chances and was happy bc of it.. i did daring things, things that made me laugh and i had fun too.. i wish that things were like that again.. like when i was young.. i didnt have a care in the world.. i only had to think of something fun to do, or a fun place to go to.  now with out her and with only myself to count on, i have so many worries, fears etc.  i was sitting here and thinking and felt a feeling i hadnt felt in a long time while i was sitting here and thinking about being a kid again.. it was a feeling, i had to search long and hard to identify. it was joy.. i havent felt that since my mom left.. is this as good as it gets i sit and wonder ...

Sheela - Please try to let your feeling of joy wrap around you and give you a hug.  It's ok.  We who have lost our precious mom's will have many days of feeling rotten and alone, but there will be days when joy once again arrives (says so in the Bible - "Joy comes in the Morning").  Right now it may not feel like it will ever get any better, but I do hope for you it will.  I've been without my mom for 2 1/2 years - it's still very hard at times, but I'm trying to let joy be a more constant companion than pain.  Take care!

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields

- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.

- Facebook and Twitter Integration

- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"

- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.

- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board

- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it.

- Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible.

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other.

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
