Taking Care

Dear God, just checking in, as I do every day, to thank you for taking care of my Bob.  I know he's free of illness and pain up there with you and that he's happy being reunited with his parents and brother, but I sure do wish that you'd seen fit to let him stay with me and our children a few more years.  That may be selfish but I know you understand.  There'll never be another like him in my life.  He was my first and he'll be my last.  Throughout the years I've thanked you before for sending…See More

Pegasus commented on Dianne in Nevada's blog post I fell for a scammer ....
"Oh my gosh, I was you, almost word for word, a year ago.  My scammer's name was "Scott Buchanan".  Military, special ops, a home in Florida but planning on moving to Texas.  Fell for him hard within a week's…"

Pegasus commented on MidnightBear (Tony)'s blog post The End of the Pavement
"So much of what you wrote I've done or thought about doing.  I've also got boxes and bags of my husband's papers filling up 60% of my bedroom.  Two weeks ago I pulled out some of it and spent the entire day in front of the…"

"I'm glad you feel better with the empty spaces.  I'm finding that I enjoy that more and more.  I never did like clutter and it's so much easier to clean the house when there's less Stuff in it.  My son and…"

"Still new at this so I don't know if this is the right way to respond to Shellybean but.....Thank you so much for your encouragement.  I watched as the vans were loaded onto the tow truck.  Since I'd fretted about how I'd…"

"Pegasus, it sounds like you're making great strides! How does it look and feel outside with the vans gone? I'm proud of you!"

Athena53 commented on Pegasus's blog post Making Progress
"Yes, that IS progress and maybe it will get easier when you see how good you feel with the two vehicles no longer taking up space.  My husband Ron died two years ago and, like you, I'll never get rid of 100% of his things, especially a…"

Making Progress

Progress has been very slow but as my husband always said, "It may be slow but it's progress as long as it's moving forward."  Today I am waiting for the arrival of two tow trucks to pick up Bob's two vans.  I'm donating them to a charity that uses the proceeds to fund the education of under privileged children.  One is good for nothing but scrap, the other is old but runs fine.  They're happy to get them and I will be happy to have them gone.  Donating the vans is my first act of releasing…See More

DIVA70 commented on Pegasus's blog post First Time Out
"First. let me say how sorry I am for your loss. I lost my husband of 47 plus years 5 months ago. We first met in the 6th grade and reconnected over 50 years ago. He was my knight in shining armor. Like you I feel as if I was blindsided. Yes, he was…"

Pegasus commented on Lifeunknown17's blog post IT'S ALL IN THE NUMBERS
"I'd never thought about it until reading your post but I, too, have a set of numbers embedded in my memory, most having to do with the day my husband died.  As you say, no one knows except for one of those numbers.  Unfortunately,…"

First Time Out

I'm brand new here and making my first post.  I lost my husband of 47 years two and a half months ago.  He became ill and two weeks later spent a week in the hospital, was diagnosed with a perforated colon, renal failure and dementia and was given the shocking news that he had 10 days to live.  I told the doctors not to let him know.  I arranged hospice care to come a couple of times a week, took him home and took care of him.  He was bedridden and unable to do anything for himself so he had to…See More
