Made it through the holidays

So much has happened since 1/1/11 when my husband died. It is hard to believe that time does keep marching on. My son and my daughter graduated from college. My son got married. Three Christmases have passed. I continue to put one foot in front of the other. There is still a sadness in me that will not go away. I have happy moments but the joy that I used to have just isn't there yet. I do pray that God will restore that to me. I continue to take one day at a time which is the biggest lesson…

3 year anniversary

Well, everyone says time heals everything. Maybe so but today doesn't feel like it. Tomorrow will be the 3 year mark of my husband's death. I still feel like I have no control of anything. I have anxiety and depression still. I feel like I will never get over or through that either. Sometimes I just want to stay in bed and let life pass me by but I have my kids to take care of. So I have to be a big girl and deal with it. My work is stressing me out too. That just piles stuff on me with the…

Bad Day Yesterday

Yesterday was hard. I get blindsided every now and then with the grief. I miss my husband so much. I feel like he was taken away too soon. My daughter told me that God took him at the right time. Everything happens according to God's plan. I know that but it doesn't make me feel any better. I was counting on us growing old together. The holidays are going to be harder this year than last year. Last year I was still in a fog, just going through the motions. This year everything is clear and…

Hi Annette:  I don't really what to say to make you feel much better because I feel exactly the same way you do.  My husband of 20 yrs, Rick, passed away 3 yrs ago at age 45.  His death was very unexpected and even now I have to consciously make myself breathe.  I keep wondering what I will wake up from this horrible nightmare.  I also lost my mom just a few months later just as unexpectedly.  I still feel like it was all just yesterday.  I have not slept in our bed one single time since my husband's passing.  I never say I "lost" my husband and mom because I did not "lose" them, GOD decided it was their time but not mine.  I don't have any living.  My baby girl died in 1992 then I had to have a full hysterectomy so I couldn't have more children.  All I know to say is that GOD is the only reason I am able to keep breathing.  Have you heard Shania Twain's song that says, "It only hurts when I'm breathing.  My heart only hurts when its beating"?  Well, thats how I feel all the time.  I guess we can both wollow in our grief together.  I would love for you to email me at

Hi Anette,
I hope you are doing ok. Holiday time is here and it just feels lost and overwhelmed. Winter makes me sad and lonely on top of being heartbroken. I am trying my hardest to kedp moving forward for my son but there is still many times I feel this sense of deep sadness abd continue to ask Why?
My husbands murder has been in Court proceedings and that has just made us re-live everything all over as if it was just the very first day. I hope all goes well with holiday season.

Hi Annette,

Just stopping by to say hello. How are you?

I was happy to see that you accepted my friendship request.  I am sorry that you are in such pain. Do you believe in God and the Bible?  Would it be ok to share some comfort from the scriptures?


I will keep you in my prayers...

Annette, I ask God and myself the same question you do, very often. Although, it has just been months, it feels like an eternity that I have not seen my husband, or talked to him. With holidays approaching, and winter coming, very sad days are coming. I now miss him more than ever. I too, try to find a purpose, every single day for me to get up and do okay for the day. And somehow i make it through, because our son needs me, but at the end of the day, I too, need my husband!!..

I keep asking God how much longer will I feel adrift. I know God says He has a plan and a purpose for my life. Right now I think it is just to be here for my kids and hope that I am right. But it is hard to focus on that when the love of my life is not here. I wonder how long it will be before I can look at his pictures without crying. I want to remember the good things most of the time but I miss him so much and it just makes me cry. Time is supposed to make it hurt less but that hasn't happened yet either. I cry out to God everyday for comfort and peace. I still wake up with anxiety attacks in the morning. I know nothing will ever be "normal" again but I sure would like to feel better.

Hi Annette, just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you this morning.  I pray that your day will bring you some comfort.  Every little reprieve is a blessing that helps give us strength to cope when the loneliness and pain becomes unbearable.  Be gentle with yourself and know that you are in my prayers.

I will pray for you too... I know the feeling of sadness of being alone. Even though I am raising two grandchildren, I still am lost without my husband. Its been 7 months now and some days are easy and then the nights are the worst. Everyone says to just get on with your life and I want to scream at them and say HOW!!!!!!!  and then there is all the people saying these are the stages of grief!!!!   I am very fortunate to have lots of friends and family for support  as I hope you do too. All we can do is stay strong in our love for God to get us through.. Take care of you.. do something for yourself that will make you feel good!

Hi Annette, I was reading all your comments and it helps me know that i am not alone. My husband died 4 months ago from a sudden cardiac arrest and I had do CPR till medics got here and with two lil ones cryin.. never forget it, he made it to the hospital, they sd I saved his life only to have to let him go two days later. I find myself crying alot too. I work and take care of my grandkids but not having him here esp at night is the hardest. Somedays I think can i just get one day where I wont cry.... I know everyone says its normal but I hate it!!!!! I feel so alone sometimes and I talk to him alot but end up crying more. Now tomorrow is fathers day anfd I know his daughter is going to have such a hard time, I want to call but afraid of what to say.. I miss him so muchand I know she does tooo.

Hello Annette, just checking in to see how you are doing? I hope you are finding it a little easier each day - if not, then tomorrow will be better. Small things and positive thoughts help I find and I am trying to see something good in each day - whether it is a smile from a stranger or just a beautiful birdsong. The sadness and crying will ease with time and you will be left with lovely memories but always you will remember your husband with love. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Healing Repetition

An uncle in our family committed suicide.  For five years his wife, Aunt Alice, said the same things over and over again to anyone who would listen.  We are a loving family, so we listened and said the same hopefully comforting things back to her again and again.  And after five years she was done and could move on.  I hope it doesn't take five years, but I need to talk about my Uncle Jim and my cousin Paul and probably repeat myself a lot. It took a long time to develop my relationship with…See More

Hello, a little bit about me.

Two months ago, my mom committed suicide. As of now, this has to be one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with in my life. I hope that through this forum I may be able to just reach out to someone who can kind of understand what my situation is like.My friends try to talk to me (and I do reach out to them) but I feel that the situation I am in is a really heavy thing to talk about (basically I don't want to rope my friends into my troubles, nor do I want to be a burden to them). I talk to…See More

The Little Things

This morning there was a crescent moon.  I always called it a "fingernail moon," but my cousin Paul called it a "toenail moon."  I got all choked up seeing it.  Then the Valentine cards are out at Walmart.  He loved all the holidays, and I always sent him cards.  But no more.  More tears to fight back.  Sometimes his love for you would overflow, and he would just have to give you a big hug and tell you that he loved you right then and there.  I have never had anyone else do that for me.  I knew…See More
