"I am right there with you. Just stopped at 16 months, it just wasn't doing anything for me anymore. I don't know if I'll ever be ready either, but it does seem to be forced upon me whether I like it or not. Time is like that. Thinking…"
"I don't have the three year old, but I'm 37 and was widowed in late 2016 as well. I don't fit in anywhere, and because we hadn't gotten married yet there are many who think I'm not a widow. Plus I'm young so I'll…"
