    Sad Loss Of WifeLess

    Bluebird - I am so very sorry for your loss. You both have contributed so much wisdom on this board thru the years and helped so many. You and your family are in my prayers.

    We are on this board because.......

    I am here because some days, even after 8 years, I feel like this is the only place in my life that I know people can relate and not judge me.

    9 years...

    9 years probably feels like forever and sometimes just like yesterday. That is how I feel now at almost 8. Hugs to you. Hang in there.
  7. Definitely a lazy Sunday Ice cream or Italian ice?

    Invitation Advice Needed

    My daughter got married in August. She listed only her and her fiancées names. His parents are divorced and it just seemed the easiest way. Nobody was upset by it but it’s a matter of preference. I would think it is ok to put daughter of (your name) and the late (fathers name). Good luck with planning!!!

    I FINALLY have a JOB!

    So happy for you!!! Congrats!!!
  10. Definitely a full moon lit night!! Phone call or text?
  11. Definitely the ocean! Pizza with sauce or white pizza?
  12. I find this hits me the hardest when I am thinking about memories about the kids. It makes me sad when I try to remember something about the day the kids were born or things that happened when they were little, and I realize he was the only other person who would know the answer to these things.

    Snow day musings

    TooSoon, I am going on 7 years in a few weeks and can so relate to much of what you wrote, especially these items: "I am so full of "should haves" right now." "No one in my family ever really acknowledged my grief. It was important in my world that I appeared to have it all under control." "I was so determined to keep on going and to see silver linings that I'm not sure I took care of myself very well." I think about some of the things I did and the way I handled things these past years and I should have made myself and my grieving more of a priority. I was so busy being strong, not only for my kids, but to make it appear that way for everyone around me. Now I think that was not only detrimental to my health, but pushed people away from offering help when we really needed it. I think I handled everything the best I could at the time, but now I know I should have done things a little differently. I am not as strong as everyone now thinks I am and as I am getting older, I see the toll the stress has taken. Thanks for sharing your thoughts - it got me thinking as well.
