Hi Lisa. Thanks for the friend request. So very grieved for you and the loss of your husband. You and I were married to our spouses about the same length of time. My husband passed away just over 13 months ago. My mom passed away just two months ago. So, this year will be another year of firsts without her. So, I've decided to work through all the holidays this year and make money. Last year I hardly ventured out of the house and didn't put any decorations up or even celebrate. You just do what feels OK for you. Pace yourself, protect yourself, pick and choose wisely those who you want to have close to you right now. Big Old ((((((HUGS))))))) to you.
