Ever wake up in the early morning thinking I can't believe this has happened, sprinkled with some what ifs and regrets but still so very thankful that you shared a life together?

Yes, it's 2:57a in the morning and I am up thinking how can he not be here with me. Still, like you, I thank God for every day we shared together. Starting out at 20 and 22 we weathered every storm and in the end our love persevered. The only regret I have is that he is not here with me. 50 years together was not long enough.

all the time. and get sidetracked down that rabbit hole at bedtime.

Rich, all the time. Every night when I go to bed I put on a CD we both enjoyed. Most of the time it is a good experience, but sometimes I find it painful that Bob is no longer here. I I feel fortunate that we had a good life together, but after 6 years it still hurts at times. Peace to all.

Oh, yes. Sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night and be tossing and turning, then I start thinking about him. Then there's Feelings everywhere, and I can't get back to sleep.

usually around 3 am, right around the time my wife passed, but it is common occurrence for many regardless, grief often affects our sleep.
