Life ! Chapter's 2,3 & 4

Posted on June 26, 2014 at 8:16am 3 Comments

I read recently that remarriage after widowhood is sometimes referred to as "Chapter 2".   I can identify with that . This is my chapter 2 of love but in the span of my life I think I am on my "Chapter 4".  Let me explain a little bit ...  I was born to a unwed mom of 15 . Raised by my grandmother without much money but really felt loved .   During my childhood I dealt with several emotional and physical issues brought on by my family environment.  I left home at 18, moved across the country…

Tonight I sit here on my one month anniversary of my new marriage.  My life is wonderful right now but it was a long time coming to this point.  Life is hard and we aren't promised smooth waters but I never could have imagined the depth of grief or loss that I experienced with losing my husband Don almost 4 years ago.  It has been a journey that has changed me forever.

When my husband died almost three years ago - I never imagined that I would ever choose to be in a relationship  or try this thing called love again. The first two years were long and hard filled with uncertanity , grief ,fear, sorrow and at times anger. I had lost so much and had given so much to my marriage for 27 years. My husband committed suicide July 19th, 2010.  There was no warning ( that I could have realized then) now I know in hindsight there were signs and subtle hints…

Thank you for your kind words, my husband left us September 2013, still trying to understand why? He wrote to try to explain how he was feeling. It's a lot to come to terms with.

thank you so much Lisa for the friend request and for writing. I wish I had more time to spend on this site but too many things that require my attention having to do with my husbands death. He died on election day and so wanted to be around for the results. Was not to be, I guess! Hugs, Pat
