  1. I took my dog out for a walk today and lifted my head to the warm sun shining on my face. Such a simple thing but it made me feel so good. Mary Lou
  2. Happy Birthday Marty. Logged in a little late in the evening. Also I want to wish Starkiss a Happy Birthday. Mary Lou
  3. Kay, Happy Birthday. Hope you had a good day. Mary Lou
  4. Hi Everyone, I am thankful for this new forum.I do agree that a loss of a spouse is very unique. All losses are unique and have there own challenges. Thanks Marty. Mary Lou
  5. What a great idea to share thoughts after the first,second,third year and beyond. My husband died 3 years ago. My life is easier but many tears still flow. Mary Lou
  6. Chris, How I wish there was a pill we could take for the loneliness feeling. It has been almost 3 years since my husband died and I still feel lonely. Not as intense and not everyday but when it hits the tears flow and I tell myself I am ok and I have come so very far. It helps me to carry on to the next day. Take care. Mary Lou
  7. I spent the whole day with my daughter enjoying the sunshine and walking my dog without being rained on. Mary Lou
  8. Kay, I am so sorry about your job. I will keep you in my prayers. Mary Lou
  9. Thank you Harry. I have read many of your posts and your kind words have been very helpful. I knew I was starting to heal when I realized that yes I missed my husband but I am not ready to die and I am thankful I am still here on earth.I have found many things to be thankful for. Good luck in your journey. Take care. Mary Lou
  10. I am so sorry for your loss. The first few months are the hardest but you will get through it as many of us on this site have. It is a great support group who have helped me through the hardest nights. I miss my husband after almost 3 years but I did survive the first few months and so will you. Baby steps. Tears are part of the healing process. Take care. Mary Lou
  11. Sad, It will get easier please believe me. I used to look in the mirror and not know who was staring back at me. It took awhile and many tears later, but I did get better and stronger. The first few months are the hardest. It has almost been three years since my husband died. The hurt is less and the tears don't flow as often or as long.I am not the same as before but I am ok and I am able to laugh and smile and find pleasure in life again. Everything takes time. Mary Lou
  12. Hi Teny, Good to hear from you. Thank you for sharing your deam with us. It will be 3 years for me in July and I do agree it does get a bit easier. I am on my own and a little afraid to start a new relationship.I have my daughter and a great companionship with my dog.That is all I can handle for now. Take care. Mary Lou
  13. Thank you Kay. Your words about crying are very inspirational and can help us along this journey. Take care. Mary Lou
  14. Valley, Happy Birthday Shelley. Hope you are keeping well.Have a peaceful day and night. Take care. Mary Lou
