So, here I am 1 year and 6 days since I lost my husband.  I met him online 17 years ago and he lived in NYC and I lived in Canada.  After a year of long distant dating, he asked me to marry him, and I said yes and moved my son and myself to NYC.  We soon moved from there to New Jersey where I still live today.  I feel completely lost because I did not grow up in this country and my family is in Canada.  Oh yes, I get along with his family, but I find lately they have been excluding me from…

I too Lost my soul mate husband Glenn June 22, 2014. Just went thru the one year anniversary and scattered his ashes where he requested. It SO hard, this work of grief. Be good to yourself!! Everyone's journey is different. I still cry alot. I also pray alot. I received this from someone and it has also helped to read it alot.
The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not 'get over' the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but, you will never be the same. Not should you be the same, nor would you want to.
Thinking of you and praying for you. Deb
