Jules - Update

Well - nearly three years ago I would ever have believed that I would be where I am today. And I have this site to thank for helping me get to this point in my life.

My husband died suddenly in November 2009, while we were travelling with our caravan in Qld. It was a great shock, but finding this site was my lifesaver. It gave me a chance to express my grief at any time of the day or night, and to read other peoples stories and how they were coping.

Now, almost three years later - my life has done a complete turnaround - I have met the most amazing man, caring, loving, affectionate and just simply gorgeous!
We have fitted together like parts of a jigsaw puzzle, and hope to be together till the end of time.

We are travelling full time in our motorhome (RV) - throughout this great country, I never thought I would ever meet someone with my same passion for this country, but I have. We are happy moving from place to place with no real home at all - of course we have bases at our familie's homes, but we live in our motorhome - and we love it.
I have seen friends who have lost their husbands or partners not having the means to make new lives for themselves even after 5 or 10 years. It is so sad. This is not to say that I have forgotten my husband, or that I didn't love him enough - it is that I am living my life the best way I can, and the way I believe my husband would expect me to -

My children are happy for me, as are my friends and other family.
You can be happy again - if you believe you can!

Jules thank your for your update on your life now after the death of your husband. You are so full of Hope and encouragement. No one in their right mind would judge you or deny you the happiness you now have. Of course any mature person would know and understand that Loving another man and finding the happiness you have found does not mean for a moment that you didn't love your husband. It means that you Loves your husband so much that you want to continue this love relationship. It is sanctioned by God also as this is permitted after one's husband dies. Equally some people find that they do not want another relationship. Each of us are individuals and have different needs. But I guess if anyone found Love again and a future it would be Blessed of God.
You are also travelling in such a beautiful part of the world. I have been there only once and it was to me PURE PARADISE!!! I wish you all the best in Your future life and every happiness always!!!!!.

Over 2 years ago you were the first to write to me after I lost my wife. I come here ofter to see if I can help someone else on this long road that we have faced. I like you have met that special someone and plan to marry one day soon. I agree we will never forget the special time we had with our spouse because for me she made me what I am today. I am so happy for you and your new life. Please come back every now and then and drop a note to let us know how you are. I have never met you but it feels like I have a friend for live. Thanks again and happy travels
