"Thanks Broken Diva for sharing. We all travel different paths but so many times I see similarities in our journeys. I was a Bank Executive and for many years commuted to my job, leaving on Mondays and returning on Fridays. My husband and…"
"Broken Diva thank you for your comments. I certainly did not mean to sound like I have erased my husband's memory. Quite the opposite. I treasure what we had and songs still bring me to tears, or visiting places that had been special "to…"

"Barbee I enjoyed your uplifting comments. I too found someone who has made my life worth living again. After 39 years of marriage I never thought I would be lucky enough to have love in my heart again. Jan 6th I got remarried,…"
This is Dogwoods in bloom 7, I just started online dating. One of the reasons my husband and I enjoyed being married is because we disliked dating so much. Widowhood is so strange. As a very attractive 58 year old widow, I have over one thousand responses on the dating site. Have only gone out once and do not want to see him again. Has anyone had that experience? Would not be surprised that many widows encountered the same issue.
For me, each day seems like a fresh aspect of hell. Relatives and friends have dropped me. Another word that comes to mind is shunning. Within days of Pinky's death (that was his nickname-mine was YoYo) the social shunning began. No invitations to holiday parties, phone calls not returned. Perhaps, the fact that we had no children factors into my lack of a social life. Thank God for the lovely friends I have and I cherish them enormously..
