What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

I’m not sure if this is the right title, but this is how I feel. I know I’ve talked about friends that Steve and I have had in the past. You really find out who your real friends are when one of the two of you have passed. Most, if not all, have been by…

And Another Year

Another year has passed us by. I hope all our years are good – great would be even better, but if you are reading this, chances are you’re dealing with a loss, a significant loss. I keep pushing forward as most of us will. Why? Because it’s not my time yet. I believe we all…

The Search is Over

Previously, I had talked about finding a “bestie.” You know, just a really close friend, someone who jived with me, to travel with, or go out to eat with, so I don’t have to do it alone. And somehow I thought if a had a good friend, that would make my life better. I’m in…

Here’s the Thing…

I am trying my best to be socially active. And by that I mean, when one of my friends or cousins ask me out to dinner or anything, I’ll say yes. It gets me out and I get to have a conversation with someone. Both of which I lack right now. Someone inevitably asks, “How…

Sometimes I Feel…

…that my life was cut short, when Steve passed away. He was my partner in crime. We had so many plans for our future. We loved to travel, sit on the front porch when it rained. And, in the past, we had bundled up on several occasions where there was as either a meteor shower…

Another Day

I’m going back to Monday, 8/8/2022. It started out as just another day. It’s back to work at jobs we may or may not like. We start out our weekly routine. Back in the day, my aunt would have her cleaning schedule. Mondays would be laundry. Tuesday would be dusting. Wednesday would be bathroom cleaning…

The Search is On

I had this conversation with Steve in my thoughts. I always was in some form or another in retail management, so personal relationships were frowned upon, and the hours that I worked were long and unpredictable, especially during the holidays. So, I never had a “bestie,” a gal pal, or anything of that nature. Steve…

Easing My Way

So, as my life has been learning to deal with the loss of Steve, in every aspect… daily mundane conversations, weekly plans, what are we having for dinner… blah blah blah. Since all our kids have flown the coop, and Steve isn’t here, it’s all totally on my plate to deal with my special needs…

Calculating

Here’s what I found to be calculated: I know I’m lonely. I know I need daily conversation about nothing. I also know that I’ve discovered some of the best times to text and network with my kids, family and friends. Why? Because I have all the time in the world now to discover this and…

And Just When…

And just when everything starts to feel okay with the world, while you do the most normal part of your daily routine, a realization will hit you like a ton of bricks, and suddenly you don’t feel so normal or okay. I just let the cat out, and I let her back in at the…
