It's been one year since Mike's been gone.

by June

Well here it is one year, March 8, 2013.
Allison, I took your idea for Kent and had a dinner for my children and grandchildren, to honor their Papa. It was awesome, I feel so blessed that they talked, laughed, hugged....Mike would have been so pleased. He always liked the get together s and discussions around the dinner table. We left his spot at the head of the table empty, I am hoping he was here in Spirit. I will be looking forward to being "Together Again", with him. I really don't know how I got through this past year...I couldn't have done it without my family, friends, neighbors, my precious dog and cat.
Thinking of you all. This is a great website. I still come back to it once a week or so.
I miss Mike more than ever and I can't see that changing.

June - So glad you had a good family dinner to celebrate Mike. It really cuts through the bleak feelings. Hard to imagine where that first year went, but you survived it and you should feel very proud. Mike knew you could!!! Thanks for sharing. Thinking of you. Allison

June I am happy for you getting through the past year with the help of friends, family and neighbours. We just have to honour those past and present in our life and from our life and build something positive each day so we can get through life better. We have no CHOICE to go on in life and so have to look for ways to better our days here on earth.
I have moments every now and then of tears and sadness but I suppose this is our grief and it comes whether we want it or not. In my 10 months of loss I am amazed at how I have accomplished so much in a short time. Even with pacing myself. I have managed to get my husband's memorial done on the gravestone and this is now in place and a big step forward in honouring him. He would be proud of what has been accomplished. It is the silence of the days and the emptiness that will be the hardest to conquer. Good idea to have the dinner and have special people to share this with so that you can move forward in such a positive way. You will be sending messages out to others that you can survive and that you are making a conscious effort to put things in your life. You are not sitting around whinging about life. May your days and months ahead continue to bring you some relief from grief and joy that will continue for you for the rest of your years.
best wishes.
