Yes, it is good to feel 'normal' again for awhile. Myroses, just take it as it comes....enjoy your life.
my roses, how thrilling for you to have this wonderful time with someone new. even if nothing else develops, you'll have a friendship and happy memories. what a treat!
Just a bit of good news. Been having some roller coasters both emotionally and financially etc. A couple of months ago I went onto 2 dating sites. I joined in Australia but it went to Canada and USA. Many men wrote but did not want to have a long distance relationship. For me distance was not the problem, it was to find someone as a companion. The other site was in Australia. I had also met up with another man Wes and I had known for many years from a business point of view. We went out together and in many ways it was good, as he was a widower, but he had also been hurt by relating to another person which led to tremendous financial loss. All this meant we had good times and somewhat stressful times. I was definitely not ready for a sexual relationship so soon either. One day I got an email from the dating site and we talked and emailed. He lived in another State so there was a fair distance. A couple of weeks ago after talking for many evenings he said he would like to visit me. (I was surprised. Someone willing to overcome the distance). We had a week together last week.
Due to being a Caregiver neither of us had any hols since mid 2009.
We went to a film, had lovely meals, walks in the forest, visit to a Botanic
Park to see the tulips and the waterfall etc. We talked about our grief, our beloveds etc. I said I had 2 phone messages of Wes voice and there had been 3. But I deleted one by mistake when I was in my foggy and numbed state months ago. I had wanted
put the voice on a CD or computer permanently. Anyway my friend got to
work immediately as he has the technical knowledge and I said I thought
there were many widowed people who would like to have this done.
It has been mentioned on WV that people have voices on mobiles which they
would like to save.. My friend thought this was a great idea and proceeded to complete this package and we added a picture of Wes as well.
This has made this precious memory safe for the future as well as being able to have it with you if you have a computer or app etc.
I believe that we need more things and technology to help us with our grief.
Even a moving tribute of photos to take with us. The other thing we noticed
was that our health was better. Our widowed faces looked better and particularly the
“haunted look in our eyes). We gave each other a lot of hugs, support and
kindness and held hands as we walked. I feel very blessed to have had
a week of happiness.
Bruja, you will, you will, you will !
