Thank you for your note, and for sharing your story and heartaches. I'm sure, like me, you're doing the best you can to fill your husband's role, but we can never replace them and it hurts. Your children are lucky to have you and, while I'm sure they will always miss their father, the fact that you recognize his strengths and what he offered your children is a wonderful beginning to perhaps taking on a few of those traits yourself. We have to be strong for our kids, and for ourselves. Some of that may mean we have to change just a little, be and do even more than we think is possible. I would never wish this situation on anyone, but I am glad to have found people who are walking this path with me. People like you, who understand, make it a bit more bearable.
I hope my posts have made you not only cry, but also feel less alone. We can make it. Keep in touch!
