THANKING GOD-- for the great times we had.
His laughter ---blue eyes--- the sweet young couple of years gone by who were so blessed to have a family!!
I am able to volunteer now--the tears still come when I hear a southern accent-- still tears over many wonderful memories--yet I am able to continue with my plan of one foot in front of the other and move forward--sometimes one step back yet I am making progress. I get a lot of exercise this way and have met some nice folks.
Because others have shared their stories I know this is another part of life--because they made it-- I know that I will to.
Thank you all for telling me your story and what helped you through the hard lonely nights and the feeling of being lost in the universe--alone.

  One of the things I love about SparkPeople is all the support that is out there for non-weight loss life issues. I am sorry you lost him, but I am glad you are still here on Spark. That 2 steps backwards, 1 step forward thing can burn a lot of calories. Hope you are doing 2 step forwards and 1 step backwards more often. :-)

    I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. It looks like you are healing, albeit slowly. Getting out and helping others definitely helps. I got through the first year of my separation (I know, it's NOT the same thing) by journalling but not online. I wrote and wrote and wrote in a book that only I had access to. Call it a diary, call it a journal, all I know is that it helped - a lot.

    It's the wonderful memories that help to keep us all going. I don't think the pain of loss ever goes away but you learn to handle it differently. Thinking of you.
