Carol C.  I am so sorry you are having such a rough time, but I completely understand what you are going through.  My dear husband Ernie passed away April, 2011 of pancreatic cancer.  I have managed to eke out a life of sorts, but I know how difficult it can be for many and like you it's during the holidays we still miss them the most.

Deborah, that is one of my favorite poems ever. I found it about 10 years ago...and each time someone I care for has died..I printout that poem. Sometimes I change the lines, to fit the situation...and I send it with a the persons family...because of the line I AM A THOUSAND WINDS THAT BLOW. 

Sorry, that sounds like I have sent lots of wind, only 4, but I like to think that each person who dies is still with us in the beauty of nature. 

I am not doing very well...these last few days have been REALLY bad. I think it is a combination of everything..including my Epstein Barr Virus that usually goes into remission in winter...but not this year. If it wasn,t for my sweet cat and the love of my daughter and a few friends, I would just give up. I have ZERO energy, and it is  sooo cold here. 

Ok thanks for letting me vent.

Carol.......I'm sorry you're still struggling.  It may sound terrible but it validates my belief that time doesn't heal everything.  I do hope you will find peace in the New Year and companionship to pass the time until you're with your husband again.

I'm sorry you are so lonely. The Holidays and anniversary. I hope the new year will bring some comfort

Hello my friends....I feel like I start every post thanking you all for supporting me.  I loved all the posts...unfortunately, I only was able to see them today.  My Thinkpad has a virus and I couldn't get on this site over the holiday.  I was so bummed for that.  Again, I thank all of you for all the kind words and poems that were posted....they mean the world to me.  I made it through the day....the 23rd honestly was much more difficult than Christmas. I thought of all of you and hoped that you were trying to find some enjoyment in the day.

Lost my husband in April, 2011. I’m still struggling each and every day. Lately I’m just so lonely... I know a lot has to do with the holidays, and we also got married in December...
