Today some very bad thunderstorms were passing thru the area. I am really scared by thunder and lightning. When Tony was at work he would call when he knew the weather was getting bad. He would talk to me as long as he could to calm my fears. When the thunder and lighting would strike he could hear the shakiness in my voice. He would say "Its ok baby its just a big boom boom it will pass " I would laugh because it would sound so silly to have to talk to a grown woman that way.
I have had many challenges in the 7 months since he has been gone. I have not been able to just grieve his loss. I have to worry about the things that I thought I would never have to. The repairs , the lawn etc.... Of course the biggest challenge has been financial. It is so over whelming on most days. So today as the weather began to scare me and I cried because he wasn't here to call me I thought about something.
I closed my eyes and I could here him clearly. Its okay baby its just a big boom boom it will pass. So are these challenges I am facing . I have decided I will approach these emotional storms that will come my way with his words ~ they will pass as does the bad weather.
