Well, it's been 16 months since my husband passed away. I'm now employed (after becoming unemployed for a year - one week before he passed). I'm doing well but there are times when I still have my moments. And when I do, it's tough. I've delved into the craft of dating. I didn't have much success. Partly because either I felt guilty, there wasn't a match or the guy was already married (in the process of divorcing). Nevertheless, it was lessons learned. In all actuality, I think it will be a while before I allow the 'right guy' to come along. I need to get over my issues and focus on getting myself together first. Just because I'm lonely doesn't mean that I'm ready. But, time will tell and God only knows my fate in these circles of relationships. I'm still standing, at work and at home...but, God first...

Well I'm glad you are still standing!

Dating is a numbers game... we all do it differently... for me, it became very time consuming.

Glad to hear you are working, too! Yay you!
