  1. Sorry for being away for so long, everyone. Tomorrow will be 6 years that Mark has been gone....SIX years. It is longer than we were married. I am trying not to let it consume me, but it is so prevalent in my life right now. Could it be the pandemic? I said something to my doctor yesterday and she said that this pandemic is accentuating everything. I lost my cousin in October to CoVid...she had come down to Houston for my wedding with my aunt and now they are both gone. It's like I had all these feelings all under control (HA HA) but now that I pulled off the band aid so to speak, it is
  2. Here is latest book published by the Grief Diaries series. It was just released in printed version yesterday.
  3. Am feeling a little familiarity right now. Monday, I lost my older brother, Chuck the same way I lost my husband, Mark....heart attack. Feeling that same numb feeling. Although I had not seen my brother in many years, that love and closeness never goes away. I always had a very special connection to him and have GREAT memories of him as my brother and also of him as a husband and father. My bond with him is one of the reasons I am the woman I am today and I know the coming days and months are going to bring that pain of seeing that void where he once was. I feel so much for his wife of 4

  5. Wanted to share with all my friends here on the forum. I wouldn't have been able to do this without all the help and support from each and every one of you.
  6. Tomorrow would have been my 10th wedding anniversary, and I lost my husband, Mark in December 2014. I now have someone new in my life, and it brings on all sorts of feelings; happy, warm, yet something is also missing. For the past four Valentine's I have really just tried to ignore it...turned my eyes away when I saw the displays and advertisements for roses and hearts & flowers. Just didn't want to think about it...the things I enjoyed about the holiday were gone. But now, I want to have that feeling again; to want to shower someone with love and let them do the same for me. This wi
  7. Anne, We have developed this special bond....and I always look to your warm words of wisdom and care. I will come back to this post when it seems I need a little nudge to get back on track when I find myself straying a bit from my journey. Maryann
  8. I understand this so much more, now that I have found someone new to walk with. He understands my loss, and what it did to my life and honors Mark right along with me. Ken wanted to try and understand more, so he could be supportive of me and losing Mark; he went online and read as much as he could about what happens when someone becomes a widow. I was so very touched by that. Today is four years I lost Mark, and my emotions are just beneath the surface...but it makes it easier knowing there is someone who will accept my grief and support me in every way possible. I feel blessed.
  9. Four years ago today, my life took a direction I had never anticipated. My husband, Mark died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack...ripped out of my life with no notice. These four years have been a journey of learning about myself and finding new meaning and a "new normal". I know that Mark would be so proud of me, and still walks along with me as I make my way. He was the best thing that had ever happened to me, and we loved each other very much. It has become easier to smile more, but this solemn day reminds me how very precious life is and to value each person who enters it an
  10. Life moves along, sometimes so quickly that you don't have time to acknowledge all the things that are going on. I am still dealing with the after affects of my car accident, and it is approaching a year. I am meeting with a therapist for a few sessions; part of the treatment for my accident, and perhaps to show some emotional distress. Am finding out how VERY attached I was to my car and all the memories and importance it held in my life...pretty significant. I was forced to give it up, just like I was forced to give up Mark when he died. I had a stronger connection to it than I do to my
  11. It still amazes me the signs and messages. Life has been changing so very much and I still know that he is there watching.
  12. I just got the CD and loaded the songs on my iPod that I take to work....when this song came on, I smiled with tears in my eyes. Monday was three years that Mark has gone.
  13. Like Marty, I can't find the words. My heart just hurts so very much for Butch and his family.
  14. I went in to volunteer at work for a bit...they are collecting and dispersing all sorts of supplies for people in need. I went to see some of my co-workers and colleagues. There were so many people there and so much going on it was a little overwhelming. I know there will be other chances to help. I do better in situations behind the scenes. I still have a difficult time being around a lot of people at once.
