Hi Bonnie,  I saw your question about wearing your rings.  I still wear mine and I wear his wedding band on a simple gold chain.  I don't know how long I will want to wear it, but I've been thinking that maybe up to a year would be an appropriate time to show that I'm grieving.  I appreciated you sharing from griefshare I think it was.  God bless~

Bonnie -- I am glad you came back to Widowed Village.  I am so sorry for your loss.  Please do not feel as if you should be on any kind of timetable -- the holidays are here and you'll be marking the one-year anniversary soon afterwards.  There is no timetable for grief.  Please be gentle with yourself, and let yourself grieve however you need to grieve.

I read the Widow's Voice blog for almost a year before I decided to join Widville, and even then I just read posts for a while before I felt comfortable joining in.  I understand that it can be sometimes be difficult to read some people's stories.  Please know this is a safe place to say what you need to say to a community of people who can understand your feelings.

I hope Thanksgiving goes as well as it can for you, and I will be thinking of you.  Take care of yourself.
