Well, I hope things will get better. Tomorrow is the five month mark for me, and I'm having an especially hard time with it all. Add to that problems with family and friends, and it's overwhelming lately. I would very much like to be happy. I'm trying.
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I love your photos, by the way. I wish I had some more of Dana and me, but I have just a few. We were so busy taking pix of the grandchildren that we never thought about us. Always thought there would be time, you know. Again, thanks, and I hope you will keep in touch. Karen
Thank you for the kind welcome. I feel like I've been to hell and back,or maybe I'm still there.I'm the first of our friends to claim the widow title. I think everyone is afraid of me now like I'm going to spread this disease of widowhood.So sorry about your wife.Cancer is so evil.Thank God they are in a better place.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm so sorry for your loss as well. You're right, 12 years wasn't enough but I thank God everyday for the time I did have with him and the 2 boys he left behind. Thanks for your support :)
Thanks for your comment. Yes, it's good to have others to journey with. And, no need for magical words. The words I spill out are ones that are deep within and help in the healing process I'm finding out. It's just who you choose to spill them out to and that is what is so great about WV.
Yes, Dave and I enjoyed so much of the outdoors. We went on several road trips early in our marriage, camping and backpacking. So I am thankful for those memories.
I had belonged to a spousal caregiver support group prior to Dave's death and it was a saving grace! I see WV as the same type of resource right now. My saving grace where I can pour out my feelings and sorrow and receive healing while doing so.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Your departed wife is so beautiful. ((((Hugs)))) to you today. Take care.
Thanks for the nice comments. I'm glad that my incoherent ramblings have helped someone on this miserable journey. We can make it, we have to make it, we will make it through. Your wife was quite a lovely lady, and you look so happy with her in your pictures.
I live half a block from Disneyland, if you ever bring that grandson there, stop by.
