Yes Randolph, wha we are missing is the contentment, we had it all with our spouses and now that they are in heaven we've lost the contented feeling of having that companionship. My life certainly did change the day Brad left and it won't ever be the same agan, but I we have to go on and try to live the life we've been left with until the day we meet in heaven. Lucky we have each other to vent to and to count on when no one else understands. I thank God every day for all of you and wish you a positive day. Hugs to everyone!

Hi to all, with all of the things missing in our live now, the things we dont have ,joy,pleasure,smiles,ect, I just realized what is really missing. Contentment. We dont have that, do we ? Why do we feel so bad when we had a great life with the one we loved and became one with ? As we all know its because we wanted more time.Nobody expected our lives would be forever changed when our spouse died. How do we go on ? Just venting. Hugs to all.Hugs are good.

Virginia, Good luck with your lottery tickets. That would be exciting for all of us if you would win. Something nice happening to one of us would be good for us all. Again, good luck

Joan, Seven days alone does make one weak ( not a spelling error either) with longing, doesn't it. This is the part I just hate. We so enjoyed each others company. We could sit on the front porch for hours, not necessarily saying much, it was just the company. The companionship. The love for each other, after 24 years. Young couples had nothing on us, we had it all. Just ended too soon. Hugs

Another lonely weekend. Look forward all week; but I guess I am better when I working & busy. Couldn't even sleep last nite missing my Kevin, finally got up at 2 AM & went in LR to watch TV for couple hours. Played some sad music today & cried. You guys are only ones who understand, cause you're there too. THANKS!!!!

Mary, what you just wrote in your post sounds exactly me. I know what those lonely days are like. Sometimes each day seems a week long. Hugs to all.

Hi Mary Ellen, welcome and you are so right life dosen't prepare us for this part, and we all have or do feel like we want to die, as Mary and Randolph have said those of us who lived for each other are paying the price now,and this is the place to vent or question or just read and know we are not alone, so do not be afraid we are here for each other if we don't respond right away we will, hugs.
