I Lost My Best Friend

My husband passed away from a motorcycle accident on our 16th wedding anniversary in October of 2007, and then 5 weeks later, I lost my mom. I still have hard days trying to deal with my losses. I have 3 children and 1 grandson. I guess I am looking for someone to understand how I feel and want someone to tell me that its going to be ok.

I am sorry to hear about your loss and for the pain you been experiencing. I too have lost my wife and best friend in life. For me it has been two months and this seems like a nightmare. I know I had true love with my wife and this sounds like you had this as well. I miss her everyday and from reading many stories in this site I will forever. I realize I am blessed for ever experiencing love and for the times we shared, no one can ever take her place in my heart and I know you feel the same way. Even though this hurts deep inside I am thankful for the wonderful times and memories we shared.To start each day now I am placing one foot in front of the other and I say this to myself all the time. My dreams are gone, but my will for living is still with me. Our future has not been determined, but it will be ok!

My heart goes out to you as it does to all us widows. I know it's painful and I wish I could tell you it will all be okay. But I'm not sure myself. My husband has been gone 10 months. And not a day goes by that I don't miss him. But I also remember some very important things like the wonderful life we had together the great love we shared. The daughter he was helping me raise and the daughter I got pregnant with before God called him home. So, next time you're feeling down look at your beautiful children and grandchildren and know that without your wonderful husband you wouldn't have those great blessings in your life!
