Hi Donnavida, I'm also in the Widowed in 2014 group, I read everybody's post in there. It helps to feel like I'm not the only one feeling like this. I read your post about the books you've been reading, I'd love to learn the titles of the books and see if they may bring me some peace.
What an honor to have a new friend, Donnavida! Thank you for the invitation. I look forward to getting to know you and hear your special voice in these discussions. Each day...we're going to stand straighter and stronger!
Donnavida, I'm so sorry you are here. I'm glad the post resonated with you...maybe you, too, can remember those days that came before after the shock of the loss wears off just a little. If the shock would just wear off! Maybe that's what people mean when they say, "Time does heal." I don't knowing about the healing, but it does bring proportion back to life. It helps you start to remember that we have been blessed as well as hurt. (Glass half empty, half full kind of thing.) I wish you well on your journey. You will have a lot of company here. Cindy
