Is this real?

Coming up on 8 months since my wife passed (16th). I guess I am adjusting somewhat. We have to, we can't live in the same spot emotionally. Life has to go on even as difficult as it can be sometimes.

I am trying to rebuild my business and that keeps me busy, when I can stay focused. Priorities changed after Linda became sick 4 years ago and I lost a lot of clients. I have no regrets of that. I wanted to spend every possible moment I could with her. We knew from the start there…

A void

I have always thought I was one of the luckiest girls on the planet: Never a day in my life that I have had worries. My parents and grandparents spoiled me, I did great in school, I have awesome friends. I found my soulmate in college at age 21 and we stayed in love, together almost every day, for 15 years.
