The two sides of a coin

Posted on September 18, 2014 at 5:40am 1 Comment

It's my memories. They are like two sides of a coin. One flip and I'm brought back to laughter and silly and happy, where smiles abound and giggles and joy are intermingles with love. They are the memories I need, that feel my soul and allow for that one foot in front of the other thing.

He was the list maker, had lists for everything, boys camping list, bucket list, list on how to beat cancer, list of things he wanted to take the boys to.

Cath:  It will become LESS painful with time and you have the beautiful children to comfort you.  it is good that you have this site and can be supported by other young widows like yourself as you do have youth on your side and we all have our own strengths but continue to reach out and allow yourself to be supported by the positive peeps who do care.  Feel all your feelings and realize that most of us are feeling the same emotions of sorrow/sadness/disappointment so you are in a gigantic club
