One Year Ago Today...

It is been one year ago today that my husband died of pancreatic cancer. It is a sad and miserable day for me and I can't seem to shake this funky feelining I've have for the last week. I keep telling myself I have survived without him for an entire year and therefore should be well on the road to recovery. But I do not feel very positive right now.

Everyone loses someone they care about. Children and grandchildren are the worst loss in my opinion. Losing your spouse has to be right up there as far as pain and loneliness. I dont think you ever get over a loss like that, just try and cope with it. I am sorry for your loss.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I went to the cemetery to bring him some Christmas flowers yesterday and it was not quite as difficult as it has been in the past. I don't think the pain will ever subside completely, but I know one day I will be able to remember our time together with happiness in my heart.

You should always hold strong the memories and know that even though hes gone, his love for you will always be there to comfort you. As time continues on you will adjust more and more and you will be happy again one day. Love yourself and your dreams everyday and should you find that special guy that makes you laugh... I'm sure your husband would want you to be happy. Hugggs sweetie

He'd want me to be happy.

I feel for you. I hope your involved with things to keep your mind off of him. Socializing, fostering pets, kids and last but not least Dating. I wish I could think of more ideas. There is one other thing - What would he want you to do?
