The Best Part of My Day

It could be mornings, afternoons or evenings, but the best part of my day is by far talking to someone. If my sister calls or texts me, I get back to her right away. I spent two hours the other night chatting with Steve’s sister. I call her religiously every Tuesday to stay in touch,…

I Don’t Know What to Say…

And when I do say something, to anyone, I may not get an immediate response. I’ve come to find out, that while I still live and do things now that I call a “life,” it’s mostly because I’m lonely. I just do stuff… stuff to keep me busy… occupied… and to me, I’m proud of…

Every Day

On May 1, 2022, I grieved for the one year mark since Steve has passed. It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t an easy year. And I’m sure it might never be easy. But it’s true that you learn to live around your grief, you hide it most of the time. No one understands it but you. And…

Hello

It’s me… again.. sorry I’m not Adele! I took some time off, a hiatus if you will. My birthday was approaching, along with the one year marker of Steve’s death just around the corner. I wasn’t sure how it would feel this year compared to last year. This time last year, I was living through…

Looking Back

Why do I spend so much time analyzing our relationship now that Steve is gone? I don’t know. I never gave it a second thought because it was so natural between us.  He accepted me and my three kids from a previous marriage and I accepted him and his son from a previous marriage. We took…

Once Upon A Time…

It seems so long ago but at the same time just like yesterday. Steve was home on his second week of hospice. We were at the week before Easter. We hosted a family egg hunt here at our house. It would be Steve’s last Easter, no matter how hard we prayed. We were blessed to…

I Want You Back

Don’t we all? After we have loved someone so much for so long, of course we would want them back in a heartbeat. Yes, I am a rom-com junkie. I believe in eternal love. And even though our lives don’t reflect it every day, it’s there. I remember many mini surprises with Steve. I’m not…

What Do You Say?

What is my response to someone who has no idea that I lost Steve? They didn’t even know his name. They never met him. They don’t know what he did for a living. They never shook his hand or saw his smile. Yet they assume he exists, he’s just at work or at the store… or…

Oh, Now I Get It

Remember that elderly person that lived in your neighborhood? The one who maybe you found annoying. You would try to skip past their house as you walked, jogged or were out with your dog. Maybe you were in a hurry to get somewhere, but whenever you passed they would see you, want to stop you for…

After Life

Have you seen it yet on Netflix? Ricky Gervais plays a widower going through the grieving process, like many of us are. If you Google it, it’s categorized as a comedy, of all things! My daughter said I should use it as a topic for this week but I’m not sure I found it funny,…
