This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Deb: I'll be joining that date - with root beer and chocolates - toasting all those who have wound up on this site. Ironic, the most constant comfort I've had since I crash-landed on this site is from everyone else who also wished they didn't arrive here. We seem to be a pretty good group of "never wanted to be" friends.
Todd, Great! It's a date! Anyone else want to join us? Debbie
Gail, I am so sorry for the sudden loss of your husband. My husband passed away on July 22, 2015. He had been apparently healthy one night and on life support the next morning. It is difficult to learn how to live alone and gain a sense of peace and purpose. I find it difficult to even determine how I'd like my house to be function right now, i.e. I have a huge house - how will it work best for me?
Please take care of you. I find this helps me heal. Debbie
Deb, thank you so much! I will join you tonight and open a beer! Always good hoist up a beverage in honor of our loves! Take care today! Graciously,
Sherri, Like you, I'm having a difficult time getting motivated today. We will get through it although it likely will not be an easy day. Take care of you today. Debbie
Hello all, I thought I would power thru today but no such luck. Bill and I used to say that "every day was Valentine's day" when someone would ask if we were doing something special. And that was true. We didn't make a big deal out of it but I always knew there would be roses and chocolate. So now, after 12 years of that, not so today. I have to say, it wasn't easy getting out of bed today. I know you are all feeling the same way. No easy way to deal with this or any of the challenges that we are going thru. I just keep telling myself (and Bill) that I was lucky to have the time that I had with him. Doesn't help much but in the moment it is true. Peace and love to all of you.
Chuck, It looks like I am able to post again. It has been frustrating to type long posts, hit send, and nothing happens. You remain in my thoughts and prayers. Enjoy today with Steve and know that I will be toasting each of my friends here tonight. Please join me if you are so inclined as everyone is invited. I have considered everything that I'd like to do today. I really thought that I would go out and eat but my heart just isn't in it. Instead, I'll stay at home, make something simple, open a bottle of good wine, and toast my friends. Love to all, Debbie
