As I sit here on the 5 month mark today of losing my wife, I have been reflecting on our 21yrs together. Not one time am I saying my marriage was perfect, but for us it was a perfect match.We got married because we were both ready to settle down and raise a family. We loved each other immensely. I remember our first date, I took her out supper and then we went shopping for baby clothes.over the years we grew so close that we could finish each others sentences, and with just a glance we would…


Another WOW moment

Today was another good day until..... I got a phone call. The call was from my MIL. Why is it that you know someone for over 20 yrs and they think that they know you better than you know yourself.Let me back up a little and explain. The place where i live i rent from my inlaws. In an earlier post I mentioned making a move for me and my daughter. This place will never be mine, so only memories are here, not the HOME feeling. For years me and my wife talked about moving. Then her parents…


Moving On

Today started out as a great feeling day. During the course of the day i had several conversations with various people.I was taken off guard at what I realized. I have been living in this house off and on for 22 yrs. This house is my HOME, but it is no longer home with Wendy not being here. The people that I talked with all agree that it will probably be best for me to move somewhere else and start anew. I really hate to do that . This is the house where I proposed and she said yes, this is…

Today is 16 weeks and 1 day that my wife passed. I saw a friend while I was out today. This gentleman had known my wife her whole life. As we talked I was reminded of all the things that made my life worth living. I remembered that the first time we went out , I made her ask me. We dated for a year and then I asked her to marry me. Over the next 21 yrs we had a lot of good times and very few rough times. I say rough times because I can't ever remember any "bad" times.We tackled whatever life…

I hear what you are saying and I get it.
My husband, Jeff, passed on May 21...suddenly and without warning. Like you, I am almost crazed when people say they "know" ...wrong. Unless you have lost a apouse, you do not know.
Grief and loss at the passing of others is a ten...this is a ten thousand...
If I can help in any way, please let me know. Takng, ranting, does seem to help.
