Circle of Life

It's been a little over 4 years since my Husband died of cancer.   He was my soul mate and best friend for 31 years.  It has been a rough journey going on without him.  I have made many changes to my life and I finally feel like I am going to be alright.   I am much stronger than I ever thought I was.  I still feel the loneliness but not all the time like in the beginning of this journey.   My constants have been my 2 Daughters and my Grandson.  They are the most important people in my…

Sadness comes in waves!!

It has been 3 1/2 years since my Husbands death.   The first year was almost unbearable.   I didn't know that I had that many tears in me!   The second and third years have been better emotionally.   I still get teary eyed but it is not a daily thing.     There are more positive and good days now.   I was watching a movies (love story) yesterday and it was a tear jerker.   Tears were rolling down my face and my thoughts were of my beautiful Husband.   I was full of sadness and felt so…

My Husband, my angel!

It's been 3 years and 4 months since my Husband died.  Never did I think that he would be gone at age 57.   We had plans on traveling the U.S. once he retired.   The 2 months from diagnosis to his death are a blur some days and other times I can remember every event: so many hospital visits (1 month in total) because of the toll the cancer was doing to his body.   One of the saddest things was when he had to start using a walker to get around because of neurological…

Trying to fit in! (my new life)

I just returned from my California trip.  My Mother and Aunt reuniting after not seeing each other for years was heartwarming.  I am happy that I could make that possible for my Mother.  I had a okay time, was mainly thinking of my Husband, who died 69 days ago.  I didn't want to be a downer, so I put on a smile and acted like everything was fine.  I was glad to get home this morning to my own surroundings where I feel comfort.  I don't feel like I fit in anywhere.  I don't want to be around…

In Honor of my Husband

I was having a crappy day!  Feeling depressed, sad, lonely.  Thinking of my Husband who died 30 days ago of cancer.  Wondering how I am going to go on and what my new normal will be.  I went to get the mail and there was a certificated from hospice saying that a tree was planted in honor of my Husband, William, Bill to me.  It brought some peace to my heart.
