If anyone sent me a friend request on fb and did not get an answer, please resend. I had 2 very active grandchildren on my lap along with my laptop and a 3rd little one trying to get up on my lap. One decided to "help" me and erase something before I got to see who it was. What WOULD I do without them?

I wonder if this could be a sign. My Jim has been gone for almost three months. Several times I wake up feeling the bed moving. I think it's the dog jumping up to wake me up. But when I open my eyes, the dog is not even in the room. One time as I was getting ready to wake up I dreamed Jim was laying on the bed with the dog and he was smiling at me. I so hope these are signs from him.

Sitting here crying. I don't know how I feel about signals from those who have died. But I'm beginning to wonder. My son and husband fished a lot together. So since Jim's death, he has been posting on facebook---The James Derocco River and Puddle tour. 12 months of fishing for dad. It is unbelievable the size of the fish he has been catching. Time and time again. I'm really beginning to believe someone else is directing the whole show. I so want my own signs, if there is such a thing, Any thoughts anyone.

I am having an awful time today. I don't know why , yesterday went so much better than usual. Today I just want to crawl under a rock. I hope you all are better than me. Have a peaceful evening everyone.

Mark,My husband died on 9/13/09.The same week our best friends were leaving to go to St.Augustine.Well of course thet posponed they're trip.S I asked if I could join them when they went in October.I was so glad I did!I just had the best time and it was a distraction for a short time.Of course when I came home I was slammed with reality.But it was a good diversion.We will have to live with this the rest of our lives.Take a short break if you can.

I just survived (if you can call it that) the anniversary of our 56th wedding anniversary. My husband was taken from me one year and 47 days ago. last year I was numb this year reality set in, I cried all week and all weekend. it was also father's day, my girls were sad --their daddy was everything to them and to me too. I miss my husband so much , my heart will never heal....Keep your chin up if you can do something fun and think about all the good times..Hugs.......
