90ft Wave

Posted on January 7, 2011 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

I spent New Years Eve with my 3 grown sons and their families. Nothing flash, just sitting around the dinner table chatting, laughing and reminiscing. We saw the New Year in, standing in the frontyard, watching the fireworks around the neigbourhood. It was a good night, and on arriving home, I was thankful for making it through. But, the next 3 or 4 days that followed were exceptionly bad. I didn't feel it coming, it just hit me like a 90ft wave. I crashed, and I crashed heavily. I couldn't…

Waiting for Pete

Posted on December 29, 2010 at 6:20am 2 Comments

Today was really hard. We (my son and I) visited the cemetery.  We cleaned Pete's plaque and laid fresh flowers. And the whole time, it was like I was waiting for him to just walk up to me.

 I read you post about feelng alone at  a Christmas gathering. This has happened to me, seems worse when you are in a place that you were usually at with your spouse, like a family members home. Maybe it is just all the memories of being there before as a couple. I dont get the same felling when I am out in unfamiliar places. when I am in groups of people that know me and my situiation, I feel that people are pitying me.
