In case anyone is interested, I was introduced to "handwriting" jewelry by another WV member. It's available on etsy. You send a sample handwriting and this is engraved on a bar/tag and can be worn…Continue

Rebirth and connection

I believe in rebirth. Based on that, I was wondering. If a person has passed on, and is rebirthed, while their loved one is still living in the current lifetime, can the person passed on (now in…Continue

Is anyone here into creative writing, as in fiction?

Handwriting necklace jewelry

In case anyone is interested, I was introduced to "handwriting" jewelry by another WV member. It's available on etsy. You send a sample handwriting and this is engraved on a bar/tag and can be worn as a necklace or bracelet. The costs vary. I got my necklace in stainless steel for $18, shipping included. I have hubby's note written to me from a very long time ago and I used that. See More

Hi Maggiepie, I am new to widow village so I spent most of the part of today reading and trying to familiarize my self with the site.  After reading a lot of the comments, I came away more depressed than I was when I started.  We all feel so hopeless and depressed.  Also, a lot of what I read were not current postings which was a little disappointing to me.  How do you feel about all of this?
