Weaxie, would love you to pop over.
Hugs to all.
It is 1 year and 1 month since I joined the band and I just can not imagine 3 years down the line.

Ron I have noticed that my friends do not speak about their husbands to me . It is as if they are afraid to talk about them to me. Has anyone else felt this?

Amen RonB...Hind sight is perfect.  I'm thinking sometimes maybe I'm the whiner and not the others.  Been confused about a lot of things lately.  Nothing makes sense.

Haven't been here much the last 2 weeks and catching up.  Was trying to get hot water earlier and realized the oil tank is empty.  Not accustomed to keeping up with these things yet.  Oh well.  Shalom all and have a blessed weekend.

My thoughts are with you...it's tough to spend these special days alone.  Glad you came here to post your thoughts.  

August 2 will be three years since my DH died.  Absolutely not looking forward to it, but at least I will be with my kids that day.  We can console each other as we remember him.

By all means Weaxie - Go.

I wonder how many people would put more effort in and change their relationship if someone helped them realize how much they are going to miss it when it's gone.

43 years ago today we lost twin boys at birth. It's always been a hard day for me, but was made easier with my husband to share it with. Now it is just me and makes for a really sad, sad day.

Comment by Juls yesterday

My fourth wedding anniversary without my love is this Sunday.  It would've been 23 years.  The last three years have been a blur.  I think the first year a friend took me out for dinner - but it felt awful.  The next two years I was out of town, but nobody ever remembers - not my son, and certainly not my stepkids.  Not my husband's family - and certainly not mine.  So I asked my BFF if she would spend some time with me that day.  I asked my son to call me.  I'm learning to ask for what I need and stop expecting people to step up.  They've all forgotten all the special dates.  They're only special and painful for me, now.  Anyone else?
