I have had a variety of feeling in the last few days. I believe I have had every emotion one could have all in one day. I happen to be driving down the road when I passed my husbands old pick up that he had when we first met. I haven't seen that truck in months, when my husband and I would see it before he passed away we used to laugh and say there it goes. It will probably out live all of us. Little did we know we were right. The flood of tears were so intense I had to pull over. The…Continue

This weekend has been more difficult than I expected. It has been 3 months since my husband passed away today! Yesterday was one of my grand daughters birthday. She turned 5. It was the first birthday party without my husband. The surprised tears in the middle of the party caught me so off guard so once they started I couldn't stop them. I stepped out side to gather my thoughts and some complete stranger walked by and made the comment. Wow, why you so sad, nothing that is going on in your…Continue

When I look back on my husband's life he was the crew chief of our family. He was our ROCK! He may have look rough and tough on the outside but he had the biggest heart anyone could ask for.

ps: you mentioned in one of your comments that you don't know where to turn. And that your husband was your ROCK....and your best friend. I know that all to well.
Patricia, as your rock, your husband gave you many intangible gifts,and that includes strength. Allow his gifts to become a part of you...and carry out his legacy.
And yes he was (and always will be your best friend) so all the more, other people will not measure up to his standards.
Take care...as he would and DOES want you to do.
Patricia, I decided that I am not going to waste any more of my already strained emotions on people who said they would support me, but didn't. ...or those who offered pretentious help. No, I am not going to allow the insensitivities of other people drain me any more than I am.
We have enough to deal with without ourselves adding to the weight by being concerned about the loss of "fair-weather" friends. We need to move on, and hopefully we will meet people who are genuine.
As my husband always said when I need his support bec someone was stepped on me:
"That's the way some people are. Don't let it bother YOU!"
