Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I’m very new to this blogging thing so bear with me, but I figure it’s time to learn something new. I’ve always loved to write but don’t have a lot of time to do so. So I probably won’t be posting every day, but on *those* days when I just have to spill it, I will do so right here. I’ll be writing about all things widowed, dating again, and anything else related to my life. Stay tuned!
I’m definitely not new to this widowhood thing. I lost my husband of 14 years on November 19, 2003. His death was caused by suicide. Not a lovely topic to discuss in any way, shape or form. In fact to this day it’s not something I really care to discuss a whole lot. But if I am to be completely honest, and to truly move forward and live my life, it’s quite necessary to own it and say yes, this is how he died. He was a wonderful man, husband, and father with many mental health issues. But one thing is for sure, he loved me and our children, and I loved him. I still do.
Grief knows no time or boundaries. You may be thinking, “wow, it’s been this long and she’s still grieving?” Yup. I will always mourn the loss of what was and what could have been. Even as difficult as our marriage was, it’s still better than being single (again) and having to navigate the wonderful world of dating and relationships.
Which has brought me to this point and the creation of this blog. For many years I have been looking for love in all the wrong places, as the song goes. Time to start looking in all the right places. I’m not sure I even know what and where those places are, but I’m ready and willing to find out.
