"Linda, I am almost through all of my firsts without my husband. He passed away 02/25/2016. As I've posted before, he was a NYE baby so it was not an easy New Year for me. I didn't want to go out or be with people celebrating the new year…"

Our Loved Ones Birthday....

Today is Jims 66th Birthday....he passed on October 14, 2016., so my journey right now is dealing with all the firsts. Was wondering how y'all have dealt with you loved ones birthdays? I wrote a poem for Jim....and when it warms up I'm going to take a walk down by the lake and 'talk' to him. We never made a huge deal, so I'm going to keep it simple like we always did.Happy Birthday in Heaven....I Miss you HusbandMy Beloved Best Friend..Your smile, your laughYour love that transcends...On this,…See More

His First Birthday In Heaven

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 4:30am 0 Comments

Happy Birthday in Heaven....

I Miss you Husband
My Beloved Best Friend..
Your smile, your laugh
Your love that transcends...

On this, your first birthday
That we are apart
I draw strength from our love
And when the tears start.....

I'll cry my river
While deep within my soul
I feel you with me
And for a little while, I'll pretend I'm whole.

Had a rough day yesterday....

The worst since he left.

Tears, sobbing and puffy eyes

Left me feeling spent....



It was a long time coming

Something I've put off

Avoidance isn't the answer

Acceptance at all cost....



I know time is a healer

There is no calendar with grief

I'm grateful for the purge I had

It did bring some relief.....



Today is a new day

Sun is shining bright

The purge left me lighter

I know… Continue

Week 18...Day 126..Without You

Posted on February 17, 2017 at 6:15am 0 Comments

Today is Week 18...Day 126 since he left...I know my heart and soul are slowly healing, but I lost a huge part of myself that day.....

You departed unexpectedly
And left me alone.

Alone in limbo
Belonging no where.

I am a refugee
Wandering
Looking for my missing soul....

New Beginnings...

This popped up on my newsfeed in FB yesterday.....



(The endings in our lives are just doorways through which we pass in our ever expanding journey through eternity into greater and more magnificent love.



In human form, we cling to the familiar. That is the way our brain wires itself. Still, the unknown offers adventure, growth, new possibility!



What is ending in your life right now? What promise of new beginning does it hold?



Rather than looking back,… Continue
