JeL Posted February 14, 2014 Report Share Posted February 14, 2014 Valentine's Day is a trigger of sadness for me....another first. My husband died 5 months ago. I read this site almost daily and I'm learning from your wisdom, thank you. You all help me even though I'm often a silent partner. I knew Valentine's Day would be tough so I made a plan. I rented a wilderness cabin with 5 girl friends and we'll ski and snowshoe for the next 3 days, share meals, stories, tears. I'll welcome sitting by the river quietly then rejoin the fun when I'm ready. Feels like a good compromise between the 2 worlds I'm living in these days, "normal" and grief. I'd like to learn how others who've lost a spouse spend their Valentine's Day. Our last few years' Valentine's Day: nice dinner at home, tried a new gourmet recipe together, quality bottle of wine, flowers for me...how I miss the flowers this year! Oh, yeah, the sex was delicious dessert. How I miss that, too. Hope to read some rejuvenating replies in a few days when I'm back online. Take good care. joey.
