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.

    Say the TOPS pledge over and over
but counting your blessings is great.

    Sometimes we don't sleep because we haven't exercised enough.
I wonder - just thinking.

Have a great day.

    I always sing 100 bottles of beer on the wall to try to keep my mind off other things. Sometimes it works emoticon

    Love it that you are spelling out your daily activity. Makes a person a tad more accountable!
