Today would have been our 32nd wedding anniversary...She's been gone for 3yrs. I feel so numb, empty and lifeless.

On Saturday, it would be our 32nd. We didn't get to celebrate our last together as Martin was off trying to make a dream come true. We loved tennis and usually celebrated with "Breakfast at Wimbledon". We would make great Quiche, mimosas and have strawberries and cream. When the kids were little it was a big deal!  Martin has been gone 19 months. I'm going to try to revive that tradition this year. Is there something special you did? Or something special you can do for someone else? That always makes me feel lighter. Hang in there!!

It is a difficult transition, to say the least. The first year or so, we experience the “firsts” (without them) and that is tough. However, each wedding anniversary is somehow different as we “would have been” X amount of years together. Not sure if this wiil help, but I try to celebrate or remember and be grateful for the years we spent together. (Not easy, but it is a more positive way to survive this day.)

Three years is not a long time as far as grief goes and those feelings might continue to surface for some time. Remain hopeful. You’re still healing. Life is different but it can still become good again. Wishing you peace.
