I came across this meme today on pintrest and thought it is worth sharing.

@ Bay (ily girl)

@Pegasus It's still so early for you Pegasus, I remember very well at three months out I was the same way.  Useless and weepy until around 11 am.
I'm now at 10months out and my coping skills are much better.  Of course, I have my moments and expect to have them forever.  I've come to realize for myself I'm okay with that.  I'd rather have meltdowns every now and then than to forget him altogether.  (Not possible but still)  ((HUGS)) It's so very hard my friend but one day you'll surprise yourself by actually having a good day!  

@ Tonya, your welcome.  :)

All if of it so true

For me, every word of that is true.  I am grateful for the 51 years we shared and the memories we made that I will have forever.  At the same time, I am reminded every day when I wake up that he's not there and I feel the loss and grief all over again.  It usually takes me at least until mid-morning or noon before I can get on with my day. It's been only 3 months so I'm depending on time to help me sort this out.
