I was ok first thing at work until I took a phone call from a local hospice asking for more details about a remembrance cheque that had been handed in that someone had sent to me. Then ok for a few hrs until I got home for lunch to find the car number plates that had been on my husbands car sent by the man who had bought the car. I have now placed them in my husbands study. Hate this journey on my own, but cannot help thinking however hard it is for me it would have been so much harder for my husband to take. He did not have friends outside his work whereas I do have a few who have been very kind to me. I know its only five weeks yet but it does not seem to get any better. My heart just aches missing him so very, very much. Hope we all can get some comfort from somewhere to help us, we need it. x
Janet, you must have been reading my mind..this morning, I was thinking that I should send friend request to you, and was surprised that we were not already "friends". Thanks. I admire your tackling projects in your house right now, and readiness to do things "women don't usually do"!!!
I thought it would get easier but I have so many little piles that only I can go through I am beginning to think I will never see the end. Then my own wash and then of course all of the clothes in the closet that I see every time I open it to grab something from "my side". I just can't put the peddle to the metal. Next week is 3 months so hopefully I will get some fresh insight into the person I am now considering where I have been. Thank you for being there. Thank you for your words they give me so much hope. Are you still the same person you were? or did this experience change you into someone you thought you could never be? that is what I am wondering. Where do you get the strength? Carol
You look so young to be member of the widow village. Hope is possible and peace is something I know we all want. Life is like a big puzzle to put together these days. Hopefully we both will be able to find the pieces we need in this time in our lives. Have heavenly day and do something nice for yourself today. Bubble baths work wonders. Carol
Do you remember Susan (I think that was her name). The lady that brought me over to meet you all in the bar the first night. I've been looking for her in Widowed Village. If she's on here, what is her username.
By the way how is the planning going. Feel free to call me sometime at 314-546-7315.
Thank-you for the birthday wishes...it has been anything but a soft day. My beloved wife, Noreen, always picked the right card for 40 years and she has been in my thoughts every minute today. You have a good day too.
Thanks, Janet, I appreciate your reply to my request. I've had a very rough 7 months since my wife died and I truly do miss the female companionship that I was so used to for so many years. Life just isn't the same and I guess it never will be, but I'm hoping someone comes along to help me over the rough spots. Again, thanks for your message and please keep in contact. Gary
