It doesn't need a special day
To bring you to my mind
For days without a thought of you
Are very hard to find

Isn't working

Well, I thought this would be a good place to be able to meet others going through the same thing I am. It started out with a few welcomes etc, but guess I never really fit in and now I feel more alone then ever.  I'll stay on for a while. Just wish I was able to connect with people better. Maybe it is time just to pack everything in and go back to my small home town and get used to being alone.

I mentioned that I have been reading anything and everything about being a widow and the grieving process, etc.,etc.  Well I have stumbled upon a rather refreshing book that I hesitated to read "because it addressed women who had been widowed in their prime, so to speak.  Basically from 30-50 years of age"  And here I am, much older.  But I downloaded it onto my Kindle anyway.  And what a treat it is.  It is called The Saturday Night Widows.  The writer, a widow herself, started this little group of 6 widowed women, with the goal of exploring new and different activities and ideas to help themselves reclaim their independence and their lives.   So, I thought, isn't that what we are all trying to do eventually?  I know I am.  But of course, true to my nature, I am trying to rush it along.  Learning it can't be done my way.  Well, this book is delightful as it introduces the idea that there can still be a lot of fun out there, regardless of my age.

Just read your post about giving away your husband's personal possessions and I can relate to where you are.  I'm not in that group to post since I lost my husband in 2013.  But you words were what I have been doing.  I recently started with the underwear and sock drawer and only cleared out the old and worn ones.  I also  bagged the worn shoes and tattered pants.  Gave a few shirts that were newer to a nephew.  And also I have a pile of t-shirts I'm considering making into a quilt.  Guess I'm finished for the present time.  Take care.

Hi cee - thank you for the friend request. This is such a hard time of year. I haven't written on WV for ages because I find it makes me cry and I still cry all the time anyway. Yesterday was 11 months - I feel as empty as I ever have. The first Christmas without my beloved Phillip. How can I ever feel like celebrating???

Hi Cee, thanks for the hello! At least we all have something in common, not everyone
Can relate who hasn't been there. Again, thanks,

Cee: I have been thinking about you. Hope the holidays will be peaceful and a blessing to you this year even though we will not be in the circumstances of our choosing. I will try to make the best of it with my family. They will understand if I don't fully engage in the usual activities. We have a pretty big snowstorm brewing here. The first one since Jim died. He always made me feel so secure in bad weather - being prepared for anything. I had snow tires put on the car this morning and felt pretty proud for getting it done and not sliding in the ditch on my way!

Thank you. I am new to this, but hope it will help to visit with others in my situation. My husband Jim died on July 27th. It will be 4 months the day before Thanksgiving. My heart is broken and I feel that I am just existing with no purpose right now. Everyone says time will help, and I hope they are right. We had a beautiful relationship and I wouldn't give up a day of it to stop the current pain. I just want some peace.

I'm doing ok. I see u r in kutztown. I'm in new hope we don't like the cold either. I'm lucky here because I live in a 55 plus community and it has a club house. When I go stir crazy I go up to the library and talk to people when they come in. But this cold keeps me locked in

Thank you Cee - was a very hard day - I know I made Justin proud of me - very drained right now - today is our 6th wedding anniversary.
