I am almost through all of my firsts without my husband. He passed away 02/25/2016.
As I've posted before, he was a NYE baby so it was not an easy New Year for me. I didn't want to go out or be with people celebrating the new year so I stayed in, watched some British mysteries and made some of my favorite foods.
You need to do whatever feels right for you.
My husband's father just passed away so I'm dealing with that too. I question why the order was wrong...
I too take lots of walks and we're having crazy warm weather here so it's been great.
Take good care of yourself.
Linda, these firsts are very hard. Our anniversary was on the 19th. I have a few more months on you and time does help, (with so many tears along the way). I love your poem, especially the last line, yes, for a while I pretend I'm whole, too. Hugs to you, Alexandra
My husband's birthday is in 12 days. I'm planning on taking my son to McDonald's (my son's idea, although we do have fond family memories there) and also making my husband's favorite cake (yellow cake with chocolate frosting) to think about and honor him. I will probably share these two things with family members who are in town.
That is truly beautiful Linda.
I also like this one...
Paul passed away on Dec. 7th. 2017 ... Next month will make 1 year. As for our birthdays. mine is Dec. 11th and his was Dec. 15. Not sure what I'll do though.
Linda, I love the picture! Thank You for sharing!
