My Heart Is Broken
On December 13, 2008 my husband called me and stated that he saved a dog from getting run over on the interstate. We work in 2 different states (3 hours away from each other). He said he would call me after he got her settled, bathed and fed. I never heard from him again.
Frantically I called for a day and a half and reached his fellow employees Monday morning. I asked them to go and check on my husband because I pictured him lying there not breathing anymore. My intuition was correct as his heart had stopped that Saturday afternoon; after he washed and fed the stray dog.
Was this animal an angel? brought to him so he would not die alone? I don't know, but would like to think so.
My misery and despair is immense right now and facing my future without him is unbearable. This is the most and the worst pain I have ever felt in my life and would not wish it on anyone. I am a widow....at age 47. I have to keep reminding myself to be strong but this is showing to be most difficult.
I have heard the term "Broken heart" and never really knew what that meant until now. The stabbing feeling I feel in my heart is genuine and it really does exist! How will I ever make it without my life long partner?? I don't know.....moment by moment I guess.
