6 months as a Widow

Posted on April 20, 2013 at 8:06pm 4 Comments

  Well, here I am, just over 6 months into my widowhood.  My soul mate and husband died after a 7 month battle with lung cancer.  I was his caregiver and with him right to the end....and sat with him afterwards for 3 hours until he was moved from the hospice.  Going thru this has been the most horrendous, spiritual, horrifying, journey of my life.  I did things I thought I would never do....but would never consider not being there for him.  Sometimes the yearning for him is a physical pain…
