I am a widow.
I suffered a heartbreaking loss.
Sometimes I will get emotional.
Sometimes I will be insecure.
Sometimes I'll be dancing with joy and moments later be crying my eyes out.
Sometimes I'll be sentimental and others I'll avoid thinking of the past.
Sometimes I'll look forward to the future and others I'll wonder "what future?"
I'll seek to love and be loved again while still holding on to a love I once had.
I learned what a wondrous gift love is and will never take it for granted.
I learned that life is so, so short and it should be enjoyed and celebrated every chance you get.
I could have so easily given up on living, but didn't. Instead I found a new strength I never knew I had.
And when I offer my heart...never take it for granted for very few are allowed access to it again.
