What an incredible story, Joanna! I am so glad you have found love again.
Wishing you the very best with your new love. I imagine your former husband will always be in your heart.
It's funny, you're my only friend on this site and I just read your background. Similar to mine. My husband was 48 when he was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer, they found it in his lungs. He lived a full life for 5 years despite many different chemo regimens, 4 major operations at MD Anderson in Houston and and Proton Therapy in Houston. My husband was a fun, loving and caring guy also. He helped so many more people than I knew during his lifetime. People came out of the woodwork to tell me how Bob went out of his way to help them with their struggles with cancer or other things. He was an inspiration by the way he battled his cancer with courage, grace and even humor all the while trying to remain as productive as possible. I have two daughters 22 and 16. We miss him everyday, but he is with me. He sends me powerful signs on a regular basis! Just got another one today.
Just HAVE to share what happened today! Yesterday was 18 months since my love left us. I don't know why, but 18 months has really kicked my butt! I finally had my meltdown last night. I cried so hard! I screamed at him for not fighting harder, then I cried more for doing that. I asked him if he was in Heaven to please let me know! My 1st husband had let me know and for some reason I have never asked my 2nd husband.
Let me back up a lil. My husband was a preacher and a singer. He sang in a quartet years ago. So, for his funeral I gave a cassette tape of him singing in the quartet to a guy to do the sound for the service. Well, he lost it! For 18 months I've cried over this tape that the guy lost and he's continued to look for it and feel horrible.
This morning we (my lil girl & I) got in the car to go to church and THE TAPE WAS IN MY CAR!!! I didn't own this car when he died so it couldn't have been hidden in there somewhere! I keep my car locked so no one could have put it in there! It was under the kleenex box and I put a new kleenex box in there not even 2 weeks ago and there was no tape in there!
I asked the guy who did the service about it and he said he has never found it!
Right when I needed it most, I truly believe God allowed my husband to put that tape in the car to show me he was there and that he is healed and perfect now!
That. is. AWESOME.!!!!Thank you for sharing!!
WOW ... WOW ... WOW!!! What an amazing blessing.
That is the most wonderful message. I, too, have lost a tape of Jud singing. Hope I will get a gift like you did.
That is a beautiful thing!
That is wonderful news! I totally understand - because a similar situation happened to me. I went to a lecture and had 2 sets of keys - my husbands set of keys was missing when I went into my car. I thought I could of lost them at the place from the lecture - but it was not there. I searched all through my purse - emptied out the contents of my purse and nothing - looked throughout my car and called the place the next day - and they searched the parking lot and nothing. I asked my husband to please help me find these keys (they were his keys). 2 days later I put my hand in my purse and there were the keys! I know it was him also.....
