In Response to RE: Thank you!! by oldieone51
Hollowed out, that's a good way of putting it. I am approaching my second holiday season since my husband passed away. He always enjoyed hanging the ornaments on the tree. I would bake him a fruit cake every Christmas I would hide it because if I didn't, he'd eat it all before Christmas even got here. If he were here now, I'd let him eat the whole cake if he wanted it.
My favorite passage in the Bible is "A Time For Everything" " There is a time for everything, that's why I think it's so important to take advantage of each day that we have. I don't have any grandchildren but my younger son has just recently become engaged to a young woman with two very sweet little boys, one is 5 and the other is 7. They will all be over here this Christmas My older son lives right down the street from me. I miss my husband dearly, but I try to think of how blessed I am. My health isn't the best but it could be worse. Death is something that all of us have to go through. It has not been easy, sometimes the feeling of such despair comes over me but it doesn't stay and after a while that feeling fades. I know that our loved ones would not want us to grieve, they would want us to move on with our lives. Oh, as far as I am concerned I will never marry again, I was married to my husband for 47 years. There are things that I enjoy doing, life will never be the same but life does go on. I think laugher is the best medicine. If nothing else, sometimes I will just get on the computer and check my e-mail to see if someone has sent me something that I can laugh at, it always makes me feel better. I just want to tell everyone out there to hang in there.
