11 weeks feels like forever
God took my best friend and husband of 23 1/2 years home to heaven on 12/26/12, after a one year battle with ALS. He was only 47. Our lives were full and as close to perfect as we could get on earth. Two wonderful teenagers...now our picture perfect family is distraught with grief. It's so much harder than I ever dreamed. The physical pain is intense. I have a strong faith and believe I will see my husband again, but I am in the valley of the shadow of death now and it's only God holding me up.
