When it rains, and you are alone, it can feel like a deluge!
I had an automobile accident Saturday (1-4-2014 lovely way to bring in the New Year with a bang, right?). My van is totaled. I have NO IDEA how I will go about replacing it!
At least I still have John's car, right? I thought so, but this morning when I go to use it to keep my doctor's appointment. ... nothing, not even a clicking noise. Gas? Yes, over half a tank. In park? Yes. Sigh. One more attempt. Click, Now…Continue

“Oh, when we are journeying through the murky night and the dark woods of affliction and sorrow, it is something to find here and there a spray broken, or a leafy stem bent down with the tread of His foot and the brush of His hand as He passed; and to remember that the path He trod He has hallowed, and thus to find lingering fragrance and hidden strength in the remembrance of Him as “in all points tempted like as we are,” bearing grief for us, bearing grief with us, bearing grief like us.” ~ Alexander MacLaren
Extending deepest sympathy, for you in your loss. And hoping, too, that comfort and peace may come to you.
Loralynn, I'll have to agree with you the night are the worst. I don't even like going home after work. I don't like calling it home now, with out Cathy there its just a house. Its funny you mentioned you leave you TV on low all night, now I don't feel so bad because I do the same thing. Like you with John, Cathy was my whole world. We had a few friends, but not many. Cathy had diabetes, was in a wheel chair, was on dialysis, and was a amputee. We felt it was the chair that made people uncomfortable, but it didn't matter we had each other.
Cathy wasn't a nurse, she was one of these people that could talk to any body at any place or any time. We were together for 33 years, she was lets say sick for the last 10 years. All of her illness never stop her for a minute. She drove herself and mom all over town, and as she would say did everything a wife should do for her husband. One thing I always admired about her is that no matter how bad thing were she never complained. Never asked why me. I'm sure she cried when I wasn't around. As I read your post it reminded me of a post that I posted a while back that its the small things that I miss the most. Cathy coming by me as I read the paper and moving my hair out of my eyes, or just rubbing my arm, the back rubs and scratches. Holding hands as we went to sleep. I can honestly say she treated me like a king.
You know I think one of the reasons God lead every body to this site is we're kinder sprits, we were all married to our soul mate. It seems like there's more women here than men. I don't know, but when I read all of the posts were they talk about how good there husbands were to them it's like Cathy's talking to me. She would always tell me how lucky she was to have me, and she thank God everyday for me. I'll be the first one to say I was far from the best husband, but I loved that woman with all my heart and soul. Cathy is the best thing that ever happened to me, and there wasn't anything I wouldn't do for her. Cathy was and is my soul mate I know that one day we will see our loved again. until that day we just have to take it one day at a time, one step at a time. I'll say a special pray for you to night, that God also eases your pain also.
