  1. Healing

    Mitch, I am like you, everything is still here and in the exact same place that Dale left it. Seeing his things gives me comfort too, so I know exactly what you are saying that if you removed the rack how much that would hurt. We all deal with this in different ways and whatever makes you feel better is what should be done. There is no right or wrong way to get through this journey, just whatever is right for you. Hugs, Joyce
  2. Sean, it hurts all over again because it's just another reminder, unfortunately it won't be the last. We understand and my heart is with you. Hugs, Joyce
  3. Today is Dale's birthday. Happy Birthday my love. Even though this is his 3rd birthday without him, it is still very difficult to get through. Any of our "special" days, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays don't seem to get any easier, not that the regular days all the rest of the year are easy either. It's like it has been said many times before, I thought I knew what grief was, with already losing so many loved ones in my life, but this one, losing the love of my life and my soulmate, well you can never be prepared enough for it. I love and miss you Dale and I always will.
  4. Brad, you will be fine and do okay. Believe me though I understand what you are saying about how much this grief has shaken my confidence. Good luck and Deedo will be with you cheering you on! Joyce
  5. Brad, wishing you good luck in your teaching adventure. Please do come back and let us know how it is going. Hugs, Joyce
  6. The Car

    Maryann, so sorry about your car accident, but glad you are okay and I'm sure Mark was watching over you. I understand your feeling about losing another connection to your love and how much that hurts. Sending hugs, Joyce
  7. Kay, glad to hear you are doing better, hoping for more improvement for you. Hugs, Joyce
  8. mbbh, so beautiful and well said. I can relate to it all. Hope you can find some peace. Joyce
  9. Amy, wishing you some peace on this special day. We all know how hard these days are to get through. Sending hugs, Joyce
  10. Kay, I'm so sorry that happened to you. When you are expecting and wanting help and some relief and you can't get it, it can be devastating. I hope you can find some help soon. Sending hugs
  11. Good luck today Kay and hope they are able to help with the pain.
  12. Marg, I know how hard it is to stay strong in public, especially if someone shows you some kindness. I lost it a little bit at the eye doctor the other day, when she wanted to know what kind of frames I wanted, I told her I wanted the same frames or something like it as they were the last ones that my husband helped me pick out. She touched my hand, said she was sorry and told me they had the exact same frames still. I cried and said thank you. You never know when those triggers and acts of kindness will get you.
  13. Happy Birthday Marita, hope you had a nice time with your son and pizza. Happy Birthday Gin, hope you find some peace today. Happy Birthday Billy, Marg hope thoughts of him will bring you smiles.
  14. Thank you everyone for your kind responses. Hugs, Joyce
  15. 2ND YEAR WITHOUT YOU My love, well it's been 2 years since I lost you and it hasn't gotten any easier. I'm still so lost, afraid, lonely, in pain both emotionally and physically without you. I miss absolutely everything about you. I miss being loved by you, miss worrying about you, miss being mad at you, miss you teasing me, miss your laugh and smile, miss your beautiful face, your loving eyes, your touch. I don't miss loving you because that is all I can do and I will love you for the rest of my life. I think of you every minute of every day and miss you every minute of every day. I wish I could feel safe again and I could feel you and your love again. I do think I feel your love sometimes and that is what keeps me going. You are in my heart and soul forever and I love you forever.
