The Heart's Longing...

Early this morning, I took this picture while the sun was rising by the lake. I spoke out loud into the heavens and universe wishing and praying my husband could hear how much I love, miss and still need him... I wrote this shortly after and thought I would share, in hopes that someone, somewhere could…

No place like home?

I hate the end of winter with the wet cold blustery days.  The first of September is officially the first day of Spring here so hopefully there is more temperate weather ahead. I had three old friends die last week, not of Covid but age related illnesses. BUT because of Covid safe regulations the funerals were "invitation only" to comply with the present regulations of fifty booked in attendees. I was close to one couple but did not get a phone call from their…

Erasing My Husband

Today makes 2 months and 5 days since my husband left this world behind.   I have a lot of trouble when it comes to putting things in my name.  I feel like I am erasing every bit of our lives together.   I had to change the lease the utilities even the maintenance on our car was under his name.   Our online bank accounts were in his name we used the same one for both of us that had to switch too.  Does anyone else struggle with this?   I just feel like he is…

Bad nights, dreary days.

It seems as if time goes slowly now but suddenly a month has gone by. I have had a few bad nightmares lately.  I have a few nightmares from time to time, usually around the time of anniversaries, it will be eight years as a widow   for me in  September, not a good month for me with Father's Day, Ray's birthday and the anniversary of his death all in the one month. Add to that all the worries of Covid particularly the doom and gloom of the second wave we are experiencing now,  that is on my…

When Tom first died I didn't have many dreams.  It may be because I didn't sleep much and when I did it was only for short periods of time.  After a few months and things started to "settle" (for lack of a better term) did I begin to have dreams on Tom.  The majority of my dreams were that he was still alive and this was a big mistake.  He was pulling off a massive prank and he was indeed live and well.  Dreams of this sort have continued until last night.  Last night is the first time I had…

My Fading Memories

I've always had a bad memory.  So bad my mother has once commented that she would never want me to be her alibi since I don't even remember what I did yesterday and she would surely go to jail if she had to rely on me to bail her out.  My husband was my memory.  He would remember all the places we took the kids, or the little stories when we were there.  Don't get me wrong I do remember things, just not everything.  He remembered everything.  My kids ask me now about stories and they just…
