Thanks for the response. How awful to lose your mom and husband, both to cancer and so close together. I'm really sorry.
You've been surviving w/o him since 2011. Do you have a job? I think from the picture above this "window" I'm typing in, that you have a grandchild? That must be a comfort.
Until I joined this site, I only had my 2 sons, a sister and a niece who call periodically to check up on me. I am alone in my home, which is on a lake in rural Michigan. I would sometimes go for a couple days w/o any human interaction, and when I would talk to my sons, I mostly say "I'm fine", which is not always the case. As you know!
Thanks for reaching out. I'll check out your blog.
Uh, 60 is still young in my book. I think there is also a group for the over 50 crowd as well. Congratulations on becoming a Grandmother! There is nothing like the gentle spirit of another living being to soothe the soul. My little dog does that for me.
Welcome HoneyImHome: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
