  1. Not long before my wife and I became engaged she gave me a copy of The Prophet by Gibran. As love was growing deeply in my heart at the time, his writing on Love was my favorite. For in deed, love was sufficient unto love, and even considering the outcome of that love, I am glad to not, "...pass out of love's threshing-floor." Thanks for sharing, for the memories invoked. "But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. "
  2. It has been to long since I have read Kahlil Gibran. Thanks for sharing.

    introduce yourself here

    Thanks for the welcome Maureen.
  6. Hi, I am introducing myself on widda.org. I use to be a member of the YWBB and I posted as maureti. I went to log into the YWBB one day a couple of years ago and found out it was gone. I didn't realize until exchanging email with a friend from the ywbb a few months ago that this board was here. My wife died from a self inflicted gunshot would to the head in Oct of 2009. Two years after she died I became very depressed and and just didn't care about living. I started drinking and became quite depressed. Life since then has been filled with incredible highs and incredible lows. The past year I have gotten on a better path. I have stopped drinking and began reaching out to people and getting back in touch with old friends. I have been reading here over the past few months, and as the ywbb was a big part support for me I am trying to make widda.org another part of my recovery. I am glad you guys are still here.

    introduce yourself here

    Hi, I was a member of the old ywbb and posted under the name maureti. I decided to drop the reference to my wife and use a name and old friend use to call me. I went to log onto the ywbb one day and found it was gone. I was unaware this one had started till a few months ago when I got an email from an old ywbb friend. Since then I have been reading some, looking to see how others have handled different life circumstances post widowhood, so I decided to introduce myself. I use to post mainly in the special sections board as my wife died from a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head in October of 2009. This year marked the point where she has been gone longer than we were together. I still think about her pretty often, but it is generally a pleasant memory triggered by something. Though occasionally there are still bouts of grief. I have dated some and had a brief relationship. Maybe one day I there will be a love in my life. For now though I am working on personal growth, (it's tough growing up in your 50's), and entertaining my self with travel and spending time with my grand kids and friends.
