Hi Michelle,

I am so sorry for your loss.  I'm sure this one-year anniversary is difficult for you and your family.  The dates on the calendar always seem to intensify the grief and pain.  It is so mind numbing to take it all in.  Early on, I would try to just "do the next thing".  That could be anything from getting out of bed, doing the laundry, etc.  Sometimes I would read a book about hope, inspiration, love, family, etc. and then realize I had no one to share my thoughts about it with.  Occasionally, I'd throw the book across the room only to have to go and retrieve it!  Frustrating and heart-wrenching!

I hope you are able to find even small moments of peace and joy with your family at this time.  All my best, Bruce

Thanks Kiliami   We were together just shy of 30 years.  I blog nearly daily on FB.  I helps... my page there is Wise Cracks Blog Page  if you are interested.  What do you do to help make it through each day?  And yes...tears nearly daily....

My boys (including my step son) are all 40 and older but we are all navigating this rough sea together...it is huge...He was a very large presence in this world and had a blog page with over 8,000 followers from around the world that I try to maintain as well... and a book..He was a Healer and very talented...so many people are feeling his loss...but mine feels like I'm exploding from the inside sometimes... So...So...hard!

Hi.....I'm just finding my way to navigating this site and saw that your husband died May 22nd, 2019. So did mine. He had just turned 61 and died in the car next to me on the way to ER. At nearly 8 month I find that I am reaching out more now to others walking this journey. So reaching out... and finding ways to engage. Deep aching in my heart for you and for us all, unwilling travelers here. Blessings Patti
