Nick Posted September 12, 2010 Report Share Posted September 12, 2010 Hi, Today I had a wonderful day with my two sons just perfect. I thank my husband and God for giving me this amazing day. As today is September 11th it reminds me of how vulnerable we all are in this world. Also, how important it is to get our priorities right and not take people for granted. Since my husbands passing I have deeper relationships and make sure I express how I feel. Everyone has a hard road to walk just some are harder then others. My personal experience has been once I tell people my personal story they are so wanting to share their sadness with me. It's almost as though they have been waiting to share. I have known people for years and until my husbands passing did I find out about very tragic, sad events that happened in their lives. Is it due to society that tells us we should not discuss sad, tragic things? The image of always being happy and everything is perfect? We better then any one else knows that is not true! I will continue sharing my story I like to think it helps others as well. Something interesting when we first moved everyone I meet had lost a spouse when I shared my story they opened up to me about what had happened to them. It was almost as though I was meant to interact with these people if it was only for a brief time. You could see it in our eyes that we understood and felt each other's pain and these were perfect strangers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
