Another year

Monday July 6th would have been our 13th wedding anniversary, hubby's birthday is July 8th again I am sad thinking another anniversary and another birthday without him I loved him so much I still miss him and think about him everyday.......a year has passed 5/15 since he went to be with the Lord, my grieving has changed it doesn't feel as intense as I reached all the "1sts" without him.

So much has changed since hubby has passed, my daughter and two grandsons and dog have recently moved in with me, my daughter starts a new job on Monday 7/6 she thinks it a good sign since that would have been our anniversary.

I have been asked out by a gentlemen he is a widower he lost his wife 8 years ago to breast cancer, I met him on one of my many trips to Home Depot when I was working on the many projects that I created for myself to keep myself busy.

He makes me laugh, I smile when I think of him, it feels good to feel alive again, it has been a rough road to get to where I am today lots of bumps and turns in the road but, I am still standing!

I know my sweet hubby is smiling down on me, I know he would be proud of me and all that I have accomplished, he knew I could do it I just had to believe in myself and trust in the Lord.

Hi Carrie 

I am happy you have found someone that makes you laugh. The friend in my life now has made me laugh more than anyone ever has. I think our husbands are looking down and happy to see us smile.

Carrie, So glad you have your daughter and two grandsons living with you. That is so great. Also so glad you met someone who makes you laugh. I miss that so much, laughing every day. I have not met anyone special but am now open for male friendship. It has been a long journey of grief. Took a step back recently when a dear friend and weekend dinner, movie friend was diagnosed with stage iv cancer. It really brought back so many intense feelings of loss. keeping busy here helps and I still attend a aupport group. You have two major triggers coming up. May those memories be joyful now.
