My Love,

My Love,

I know that you can see me as I can feel you. I know that your o.k and I wanted you to know that I will be too. I can not bring myself to stop Loving you as though it were a switch.
But I am making a life for Our youngest as the older kids go on with theirs. I know that you were there when Krissy walked down the isle.

I know that somehow you protect us even if it is from our own selves. But I do thank you for the little signs that you leave that brings me a smile when I need it most, I will always miss you but I know that I will carry on without you. It is by far the hardest thing that I have done.

Together we could do anything....Alone I thought I could do little. But I will be o.k so My Love, Rest easy and know I will do my best. My best without you and that I Love You Still...
Your Wife Always...

My love

I believe I can hear a certain self confident tone in your words that was propelled by deep thought and alot of hard work. Our road to recovery in this grief is long and unstable, with the possibility of falling off the side of the mountain at any time. You apparently have been learning how to use the ropes, stepping up on the ledges ever so carefully. As you climb, don't forget to look behind momentarily at all the sadness and pain you climbed over getting to where you are now. And yes, Paul is there gently probing you along sending little signals that he is with you in every step of the way. Keep your love as a sign that love does conquer all. My best to you as you continue on this journey.

Ps - my submit word Is Sunray- guess Ray is with me too!

Hi Hope,
Its hard to believe sometimes that we have come so far. In the days that have passed i never would have believed i would be ok. Bu we somehow get the strength in our hearts and our heads to move forward with our lives at our own pace. Im coming up to my 4th Christmas without Richard. Im not fragile anymore, im so much stronger.

Hope, u sound in good form and im so glad that u are getting stronger and stronger too.
Best wishes from N Ireland..
Ur doing well

With all the pain we deal with it gives hope to us to read your tribute to your hubby. Your words ring of the depth of your love and the fact you clearly are feeling the wonderful part of your love.
They are with us they protect us and it is good he can still make you smile.
Thank you for sharing the depth of your feelings with us

Yes, Always Wife
by: Judith in California

Hope, I feel the same and wrote in my journal the other night that I'm still his wife and will always be and that he is still loved.

It's most sad when we are left with so much love in us for them and we can't share it. ANd no, it doesn't just stop because they are
gone. I explain to people when they think I should be over it that they are telling me to stop loving him. They just don't get it.

You sound strong though and I pray each of us continue to gain strength to heal the best we can.

More Inspiration by HH........
by: TrishJ

I really thought I was doing OK on my anniversary until the evening set in. Memories flooded back of our wedding night. Me, 6 weeks from my 21st birthday (just a kid) married to a man of the world 9 years older than me. What a journey he took me on.
I've been down and weepy the last few days, not wanting to leave my apartment, actually blowing off my grandsons for a day out.
I know I can make it. I see the little signs too. I know I have to be strong. I will survive as you have.
Thank you. Thanks for the inspiration....again.
