My heart is with you today Valerie and I hope today is a better day for you! The same thing happened to me last night. I was also doing well the last couple of weeks with staying focused on what I needed to do. However, whenever I sit down long enough, thoughts of his death also come back as if it was yesterday! My 5 months will be on the 20th. We will get through this but I expect many more tears will fall until we have adjusted to our "after (insert name here) died" life.
mrs hamilton - that is truly a horrible day - geez! hoping you have a better one around the corner.
5 months ago today I lost my first love, best friend, lover, business partner, confidant, comedy partner, mind reader, nurse (when I was sick), cook, handyman, masseuse, father of my children. . . my everything - for the last 25 years. I thought I was doing well these last couple of weeks, but last night the clouds came down and I feel like it just happened yesterday. Hope tomorrow is better.
Wow, first time I've ever heard of a 'happy committee'. SMH....
Mrs. Hamilton, so sorry about your awful day! The good news is the day is over and tomorrow is an opportunity to look back and laugh at what you can. May tomorrow be a better day for you!
Wow MrsHamilton, that was a crappy day, I'm so sorry. I sure hope you told the pastor what he can do with his committee (very nicely..since he's your pastor...lol) I'm so sorry about your father. Hugs and I hope tomorrow is a better day.
Just needed to check in, having a REALLY crappy day. Started the morning with the lady at the gas station asking where my hubby has been keeping himself and continued through with my pastor calling me to tell me that he had a "revelation" that I am in emotional turmoil over the loss of my husband (YA THINK??) and he believes he needs to set up a committee assigned to help me "wake up happy". Really?? The committee is going to bring my husband back? They have that power? And ended with talking on the phone to my father, who is in rehab after a stroke a week ago, asking me when Hubby and I are going to come see him, he misses us!! I miss us too!!
I've become pretty good at repeating;
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference."
I even bought a garden flag with that saying on it and hung it outside my front door. I guess we all have our moments though....
