"Thank you all for your kind words. I went home last night and pulled out the pictures a friend had taken of my husband's funeral. It was the first time I allowed myself to see them. Although we were all grieving it was good to see smiles and…"

"I am very grateful to have had Jerry for nearly 35 years. I still celebrate our anniversaries by counting them. This year would have been our 39th anniversary. No matter when we lose our spouse it is always too soon. It's amazing how each of…"

"Well, no one has been here for awhile so I guess I can feel pretty safe writing this. Today someone made a judgemental comment about the religious beliefs of the Church my husband's funeral was held in and how depressing their funerals were. I…"

"Thank you Barzan for your uplifting words. Both of my daughters are going through difficult times right now and I know they need to hear those words of praise from me. I had a difficult relationship with my oldest daughter for a good many years and…"

"I lit candles yesterday in memory of my husband, his mother, my friend's mother. I lit candles for my brother, John, and my parents who have all passed away. Afterward I took a scenic drive and stopped at a nursery and purchased a tomato plant,…"

"Thank you SweetMellisa. Tomorrow is the 4th anniversary since Jerry's passing. I am hopeful that I will be able to totally lay this day aside. It follows only 4 days after the birth of our last grandchild who just turned 4 this year. I can look…"

Seashell commented on Jerseygirl2525 (Andrea)'s blog post I don't know where he's buried
"Your cousin is a cruel man. I am sorry that he has done this to you and others. If you do choose to exhume his body is there someone who knows him that can view him for you?  I buried my husband's cremated remains near his parents who are…"

"I have a question for those of you who may have experienced this or know of someone who has. I can be on time or early in getting ready for work in the morning but by the time I get into my car I find that I am 15 minutes behind. It seems as though…"

"Thank you all for comments. I still wear Jerry's bathrobe since it is lighter weight than mine. When I used to feel down after he passed away I would wrap myself in it at night. When my house gets cold - yes, I admit it - I do wear it over my…"

"When Jerry would be underfoot for the hundredth time and I was thoroughly exasperated with him I would tell him "do you know why God gives women an extra 10 years?"... I can see him smiling now and saying "and you thought it would be…"

"So true! I do miss my husband greatly but I have grown accustomed to having the whole bed to myself. On the weekends I can go to bed as late as I want and get up as late as I want. One time I even spent 4 hours at Barnes and Noble and forgot about…"

"Dear MissmyHusband: For the most part I have been finding a new happiness in my new life although I miss my husband dearly. I am able to connect with people like I hadn't been able to do in years. These feelings just came on so suddenly that…"

"I am beginning the two week countdown. Suddenly my emotions have turned and I am angry and yelling one minute and crying the next. The countdown to April 11th begins. In it I will begin reliving the last few days with my husband. The drive home from…"

Seashell commented on Soaring Spirits's group Widowed in 2013
"It's funny how life has a way of continuing even after a loved one passes. I had spent so much time running away after Jerry died that I didn't really have enough time to create a life for myself - until now. I am a much better mother and…"

Seashell replied to CarolinaHeart's discussion TRAVELING ALONE? in the group Born in the 50s
"I read this quote from the Dalai Lama: "Once a year go someplace you've never been before." I would like to make it a goal to do this. It doesn't have to be someplace far away...but someplace I haven't been before...or, that…"

Seashell replied to CarolinaHeart's discussion TRAVELING ALONE? in the group Born in the 50s
"Good for you Athena! I have done some traveling alone - mainly to places that my husband and I had traveled to before. I found that eating at outside cafes was more enjoyable than sitting in a restaurant alone. I went to Sedona, a place Jerry and I…"
