Thank you TerryLovesJim. I lost my Jim on March 8th, 2011. I promised that I would also be a testimony of our love and with that and God's loving grace, I am getting through each day. Some are harder than others, but Jim's memory is living bright in my heart.
May you have a Blessed day and thank you for sharing.

Really?
Hi Terry. I am glad you found this site. It really does hep, but it stinks being here if you get my meaning. The good new is you will make great friends, and the chat is wonderful. Please join in. You can just peek, and then jump in when you are ready. I lost my husband to Cancer last April. It is rough, but I found this place really helps. I am sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and your family, and I hope to see you on chat soon.
I lost my husband 12/10/11 @ 7:15 am. He passed away in our living room, in our daughters arms. Jim battled cancer (non- hodgkin’s ) for 22 months. He always believed God would heal him, we did too. Jim and I were married for 36 years and he was my first and only boyfriend. We met when I was 11 and he was 13. My heart is broken, I don't want to go back to work, I can't sleep and all of the other things that have been mentioned here. But, we have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I must set an example for them so- if ever- in their lives they face a heart wrenching event they will not give up. I must be a testimony of Jims love, of Gods grace and his all forgiving mercy. Our husbands are not a part of our past, but rather a part of our future. When our time comes to leave this earth we will reunited with them for eternity.....then and only then will we understand. Lets pray for one another and take comfort in knowing we will see them again, in a place where there is no sorrow and death reigns no more.
Thank you Sheryl!
Valerie, though we have different situations (my husband had cancer) I could have written the rest of your post. I too started dating him when I was 17 and we also owned a business together. He was also a hunter, and his aunt and uncle were just here last week going through and pricing out his hunting stuff for me to sell. Ugggh. He dies on Sept 3, so tomorrow will be 4 months. I also have kids (@12, 10, 8, and 6 1/2) and they too are my saving grace. This is not easy, but I find that somehow I am making it through. It would be a lot harder if I didn't have my kids, that's for sure. They keep me going!
Thank you everyone, I am seeing a psychologist, but being on here has made me feel far less crazy. I have lost both parents and 2 brothers, but losing my husband has sent me into deeper darkness than I have ever experienced, my saving grace is my two kids (9 & 13) and now you guys to make me realize I am not insane! THANK YOU :)
@Valerie, I'm sorry for yor loss. My husband of 21 tears died on October 11th. I know how you feel, I always thought I was confident and independent and now i feel like a spineless mess, i seem unable to make any decisions or accomplish anything. You will be glad you found your way to this site everyone here is so supportive.
Being that I was more concerned about NYE than Christmas, I took 2 granddaughters away to Nickelodean hotel Friday and Saturday nites. I was glad I went, even though I stood by myself at midnight since the girls were swimming. It was hard to cry too much or for very long when you are standing in a group of strangers. All in all I'm glad I went. Nine and six year olds can be big distractions.
THEN, on the way home I get a phone call from my stepmom that my Dad was admitted to the hospital on New Years Day with severe congestion and high heart enzymes (not sure what that is) and I thought OMG what a way to start 2012. It turns out it was pneumonia and he will be okay and should come home tomorrow. I realize he is 85 but my husband is not even gone 3 months and I didn't even want to go there.
Thanks for listening. I'm so glad for everyone here on this site.
