How Far I've Come

Recommended Posts

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 will be a year of adjustments.  I am so lucky that he understands and gives me all the room I need to have all these different feelings...he knows that Mark will FOREVER be a part of my life, and that means he will also be a part of "our" life as a couple.  It's one of those things that you have to move your way through with no real suggestions on how to do it.  I'm happy again.  I know that Mark has something to do with it...and that makes me smile.

I'm so happy for you, Maryann!  You are well deserving of all of the happiness that comes your way!  Wishing you and your new man the best...and I hope tomorrow will once again be a very special Valentine's Day for you.

I'm sure Mark does have something to do with it. I say the same thing about meeting Bill. They want us to be happy.
