Hello everyone. I haven’t visited for a while. I saw a post that really touched me from Carol C and I wanted to reply. First though let me wish everyone a blessed New Year’s and a kind 2018.
To my special friend Marsha, thinking of you! To Carol C who posted, my 45 th wedding anniversary is happening as I write this! 45 years ago tonight we were married. My darling Jack and I were very young! It’s been snowing where I live and it was snowing on our wedding eve too.
He passed away in August 2010. It was a good five years before I began to feel like I could handle the loss. The last two years have been up and down but I’m mostly doing well. My 6 yr old granddaughter Abby really helps to fill the rather large hole in my ❤️ I had a friend say to me just recently ‘maybe it’s time to move on’ . Your heart knows what it wants, trust that.

DITTO, everyone. 

May the coming year be a good one, and I wish you all joy, and peace of mind, and miracles of happiness in all of our heartbreak.

To my legacy family

My wish for you all in 2018 is subsiding pain and loving memories!

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.
