Full Moon Rising

by Allison

I am just days away from the first anniversary of my dear Kent not being home. He was in hospital for a month before he passed away without warning so I mark this upcoming anniversary as important as his death day anniversary. You see we both expected that he would come home again. But it never happened and I spend these days remembering "well last year on this day we were buying ice cream from our favorite dairy or on this day last year we decided to take a trip to Eastern Canada next summer or this day last year we made sweet love. The first year alone in our home is awful. I am so lonely. It is a physical pain that doesn't seem to ease. There's a full moon rising tonight and I hope it shines on both of us. May it bring some peace before the next full moon that will mark the first anniversary of his death. I miss him more than words can ever say.

I am sorry for your loss Alison. It takes time to adjust. Hopefully you have family and friends. For me it will be 3 years on Nov 22 since my husband passed away.I still miss him. Of course I am better, very active in church and working. But life has never been quite the same without him.
Sometimes I think I need to move from here and get away from the memories but memories are inside a person too. My grand children still miss him and they are getting big now.
We are always here for you when you need someone to talk to. Grief is different for everyone. Take care and keep posting.

I drove my husband to the hospital with difficulty breathing. He had emphysema and I thought they would give him oxygen and meds then he would come home or maybe have to stay in the hospital for a day or two.In 5 days he was dead. I stayed with him as much as I could(he was in ICU)and on a respirator.As a wife and a nurse I watched him like a hawk. I kept talking to him and expecting him to wake up. He never did.Today,I talk to him all the time. I keep expecting him to be there but he isn't. My faith that I will see him again is the only thing keeping me going.The loneliness is there all the time even in crowds. I miss his presence.I know I have to go on for the kids and grandchildren but sometimes it is really hard.There are a lot of us who feel this way and it's because of LOVE.True love is so strong that it will make a way for us to be together again.I have to believe that.GOD bless you and give you strength

You will always miss your husband. My husband is gone 15 months today. I tell him I love and miss him everyday.
When we lose someone we love, we never realy get over it. We just slowly learn to live without them but always keep them tucked safely in our heart.
To have my husband back, to have my old life again; that's what my heart aches for. I know that isn't going to happen. I realize we all are going to one day die; it's just why couldn't we have gone together. Then I think of our children and grandchildren. They shed so many tears, when he died; I think how devastated they would be if we were both gone. I am being selfish thinking that way. God works in mysterious ways. He knows what he's doing, even though we don't understand
