"Aneurysms shouldn't be ignored. My husband had one removed just in the nick of time. It had gotten so big if if had burst, he would have died within five minutes, they said. I'm sorry you're having the blues right now and rightly so…"

My Fifth Memorial Day

Posted on May 30, 2016 at 7:00am 0 Comments

I have mentioned the term 'Memorial Day' in twenty-four blog entries in my personal blog (The Misadventures of Widowhood). I know this because the ‘search this blog’ feature mysterious started working again and since I’m a statistics kind of person, I’m happy about that. Though, honestly, sometimes I wonder why I still bother to reread past posts in an effort to take my widowhood temperature, comparing earlier…


Fourth Sadiversary on Widowhood Lane

Posted on February 6, 2016 at 5:00am 3 Comments

My mom died on Easter thirty-two years ago, my dad died on Christmas fifteen years ago and my husband passed away four years ago the middle of Janurary.

How could I not? I often feel him still around me. It may seem overly dramatic to quote a well-known poem here but I’m going to do it anyway. It was printed on the remembrance cards handed out at Don’s memorial service and sometimes when I read it, it speaks so softly to me I can barely hear…

Third Christmas Without My Husband...

Posted on December 21, 2014 at 9:35am 3 Comments

Days before my first Christmas without Don I wrote a post titled Where Have You Gone, Christmas? and it started like this: “In a year of firsts for widows, probably the hardest first is not the same one across the board. Some might say their wedding anniversary; others might say the birthday that can no longer add a number to an age, still others would name Thanksgiving,…

Welcome Blue Snow:  I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site.  I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at WV that I have.  In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat.  Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable.  It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
