7 weeks ago today MY LOVE went to Heaven. 16 yrs ago today I married MY LOVE. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MY LOVE! Today is hard, tears are flowing, I can't imagine the rest of my life without him, these past 7 weeks have been so hard, & to think of the Holidays makes it worse.
So sorry to hear of your speech issues Wilela. I can only imagine how frustrating that must be. It is like you had a stroke, as this is an issue stroke sufferers often go through. My Rose had that problem after her stroke. I hope that your medical team can refer you to someone who can help you with this.
Renae .. Your post brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry you ended up in hospital (not uncommon for some grievers) and we get all sorts of maladies and some of it is due from stress. It is so sweet of your grandson and I agree that he feels you may not be there for him because of the loss of his grandpa. What a little sweetheart and a good reason to keep on living. There is nothing greater than the love of a child.
Nate, Your Poem is so beautiful and expressed so much love!! As you have me crying may I say I am so sorry for your loss as well as my own. Almost 7 weeks ago I lost my husband and he too was the love of my life!! Spoke with the Social Security office today about the one time lump sum benefit WOW $255.00, anyways he said something about if I get remarried & I said oh NO I WILL NOT EVER REMARRY! Someone also got me a T-shirt that says " I AM NOT A WIDOW, MY HUSBAND IS WAITING FOR ME ON THE OTHERSIDE". GOD BLESS YOU
Hello everyone, it's been two years for me and it still is unbelievable. This is for the Love of my Life:
Two years have passed
Michelle ... We do understand and there are others on here that often find they have no words of comfort to give, but, please feel free to express your thoughts about what you are going through so we can band together to help you get through the worst of it.
I have been reading your posts to this page over the last few weeks, everyone. I am sorry for not replying. That is a fault of mine, I struggle to find words of comfort :( my thoughts and prayers are with all of you though. I am so so sorry for your losses.
Dear Renae, we often talk on the site about how our little ones are such a blessing, so loving, innocent and gifted at knowing what to say, especially those words of true love. Your story touched me very much as I can just see your grandson throwing his arms around you, he loves you very much!
7 weeks is no time at all Renae and the grief will be very raw but it will get easier, and your family and little grandson, they will have a big role to play in that.
Thinking of you and take care now that you are home.
Dear Renae -- What a precious treasure you have in that little grandson -- let his love help you heal. Yes, 7 weeks is still so raw, but, of course, our grief cannot be measured in days and weeks. As we all know, time does not heal our broken hearts -- but, I have found that children have magic powers to make us smile and laugh, even in some of the worst moments of our grief. Truly, little blessings from God.
You are in my prayers, Renae.
