To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don't get over it because 'it' is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it?

Afgeleid van het Hebreeuws met de betekenis: de toegevoegde. De naam is vooral bekend van Jozef, zoon van Rachel en Jacob, werd door zijn broers verkocht (Gen. 37 e.v.).
(k heb het ergens anders opgezocht omdat Jozefien niet in die lijst stond en bij de naam Josephine kwam geen uitleg bij...)
Ah ,toch wel,'t is afegleid van JOSEPH :
m English, French, Biblical
Pronounced: JO-sef, zho-SEF
From the Hebrew name Yoseph meaning "he will add". In the Old Testament Joseph was the eleventh son of Jacob. Because he was the favourite of his father, his older brothers sent him to Egypt and told their father that he had died. In Egypt, Joseph became an advisor to the pharaoh, and was eventually reconciled with his brothers when they came to Egypt during a famine. This is the name of two characters in the New Testament: Joseph the husband of Mary and Joseph of Arimathea. Also, rulers of the Holy Roman Empire have had this name.

Allé tof dan...
