"Faolan, thank you for your kind words and reassurance, they mean a lot. Aside from the loneliness, it’s sad to feel there’s nothing to look forward to. Like someone here wrote recently, ‘my life has no style.’ Like most, we…"

"Laurajay, I can relate so well to your earlier post about special occasions piling up, one after the other. I lost my husband on Oct. 5, 2017; his birthday is Oct. 10th. And today, November 18th, is what would have been our 29th anniversary. Next…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) commented on TamiK's blog post Too much sadness
"TamiK, I just read your post and story, and my heart goes out to you. Three losses in as many years is too cruel. I lost the love of my life on October 5th of 2017, and although I stay busy, the loneliness and sadness are with me constantly…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) commented on Miss Em (Emma)'s blog post The right time for everything
"This discussion touches me in so many ways. It will be 11 months for me this coming week, and I’ve not been able to remove his clothes from our closet. I just can’t imagine them not being there, across from mine. His dresser still holds…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) commented on Athena53's blog post "A sculpture that Creates Intense Emotion"
"It’s a beautiful and profound sculpture and surely resonates with all of us trying to reinvent ourselves from all the pieces left. This writing I share brings me great comfort and may fit nicely here: ”I greet you from the other side of…"

"I bought 2 eternity circle pendants for myself and my daughter that hold a tiny amount of my husand’s ashes. I wear mine special places, not all the time. But especially when I feel a greater need to have him with me...his patience, tolerance…"

"Melissa, I’m glad you liked the quote as as I do; it inspires me every day. I know what you mean about dying; with our loves gone, it just seems OK to be finished too. On bad days, thinking of the future makes me anxious, but meditation has…"

"Colleen and Carol, my heart goes out to you especially, thinking of the pain, grief and confusion you must have endured being in a foreign country. Carol, it is so new and raw to you now; do take special care of yourself each day.  Tomorrow…"

"I’ve experienced every single one of those changes in the past 6 months. The challenge is facing each one of those changes to try and rebuild a life. For me, I know it will take the rest of my life. But my beloved husband will hold my hand…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) commented on Soaring Spirits's group Suddenly Widowed
"Rkay, your comments are especially  meaningful to me! I too don’t speak of my grief a lot, but my friends who know me well ‘get’ how I feel; they knew my husband too and share much of my pain. It’s only been 6 months for…"

"Thiswitch, thank you for your reply, it’s nice to know someone else feels the contradiction of not wanting people to feel sorry, but also wanting them to understand. Weekends are difficult; it’s Sunday and I was doing a little shopping…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) commented on Soaring Spirits's group Widowed in 2017
"It is 6 months today since I lost the love of my life after 29 years. Yet it seems like a lifetime since I’ve been without his love and presence. Time has a way of distorting reality when it comes to this particular grief I think. As he would…"

EarthSpirit (Carol) replied to InsideLove's discussion Unfortunately finding myself here in the group Born in the 40s or Earlier
"I am so very sorry InsideLove. For me it hasn’t quite been 5 months, and as another widow said recently here: “when I lost him, I lost me.”  I truly don’t know who I am now. My self confidence has slipped away, and I…"
