My husband was 29 years older than I. I understand what you mean about the comments. People can be very crass.
Awesome reply and I TOTALLY agree!
Chris- AMEN to what you say. Thanks for being so honest in sharing your thoughts.
Thanks Jerry. Time will heal a lot for both of us, I'll bet. Sad part is that we have a lot in common, but just jumped into it before we were ready.
Deleted my original post due to a link on facebook. Sorry, I'll be more careful next time.
New Love FIXES the loneliness issue and gives renewed energy to our lives. It doesn't make you miss the old love less, just a little differently as a new partner is there to support you through the journey.
Both of my husbands were loved totally and wholly, but differently as I was a different person when I met my first love 33 years ago to the person I became after he died. So I was a different person that my 2nd husband fell in love with and married in 2006.
Who knows what or who is out there for the new me this time.
Janch02, what a beautiful letter! It gives me hope for a future love, but I too want it to be, not easy, but simple and OBVIOUS like it was with Bubba. I'm afraid that making memories with someone new will make me forget my wonderful memories with him. Unless my new soul mate finds me at home, work or the grocery store, I don't think he'll find me! I was on a dating site for a month, but no one caught my eye and I'm not sure I'm ready to risk what's left of my heart. Again, thank you for sharing your letter and your thoughts, hope your Wednesday is wonderful.
What a beautiful letter. Wow. You are blessed to have friends such as this. Thank you so much for sharing with us. May God bless us all on this journey of grief, life and love. Please share this book he sent you? Thanks so much.
Thank you for sharing. The letter is lovely and the book sounds very helpful. Hope you are doing well.
