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.

Dear Mary Clough,
It broke my heart to read your post. There's absolutely no need to apologize. Life without our spouse/partner is absolutely agonizing, and we on this site are all familiar with, and understand, the feelings of despair and depression you are facing right now. Take one day at a time, and just try to keep your head above the water.
My wonderful husband Joseph passed more than two and a half years ago, and I still find it exceedingly difficult; life for me is not worth living, but what can I do? Like everyone else here, I try my best and just take one day a time. I find that quite not as overwhelming as trying to envisage the rest of my life.
Hang in there. Sending you love and thoughts of peace.
Soooo brother Chuck are you typing out some of those wise and wonderful words of wisdom and contemplating writing that book? Thought I forgot didn't you? LOL
Your sis Marsha
Gretchen ... What a wonderful idea you had with the quilts. I wish I had thought of that myself. You must take a picture when you can and post it so we can so your beautiful handiwork.
Mary.Jane ... How sweet of you to leave such a wonderful post to me. I really do feel everyone's pain on here as I've been through of course myself and I still have some difficult days. It gets so frustrating that I just can't wave a magic wand and the hurt and sadness away from all of you, but now realize grief is a necessary part of life. I am so very proud of each and everyone of you for even getting out of bed and trying your best. It is true that eventually, life will get a bit easier as time goes by although our spouses will forever be in our hearts. I think of all of you often and I always check the forum to be sure a post is answered. Unfortunately, there is a time difference and most on here are in the U.S., while I'm in British Columbia, Canada.
I don't like to take all the credit and I feel God has guided my finger tips over the keyboard to try and bring as much peace and reassurance to each one of you and I hope I succeed if even for a bit of a break for each of you.
It's sunny here today so I'm going to take full advantage of that and take my dogs for a walk and just enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. Then off I go to help[ adopt dogs out which I really do enjoy.
I wish you nothing but sunshine, joy and peace in your heart today and again, so very proud of you Mary.Jane.
