Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day used to be one of my favorite romantic holidays, or at least it was until November 21st of 2010, the day my loving husband passed away. My husband always had a way of surprising me with roses, even the times he was in the hospital, he'd still surprise me and they'd be delivered to the room after I got there. He'd always have this big smile, as if to say I gottcha! Now however, as this Valentine's day comes closer, the more depressed I get. There are times like this when I truly wished we would have had just a little more time together, although admittedly, considering the pain he suffered the last few weeks before he passed, that would be selfish of me, I know. I know I miss him so much, it's as if it were only yesterday that I lost him. Losing him, I lost part of myself. Trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life still somehow seems to escape me. I know he was the one true love of my life and I miss him terribly. To My Loving Husband, Jesse, I do and always will love you and I miss you terribly. God Bless you and Rest in peace. God Bless you all that have lost loved ones.

Valentine's day

I am so sorry for your loss. It has not been very long and I realize Valentine's day will hard for you. Somehow you will make it through and God will be with you.

These holidays are the hardest to deal with. It just takes time go through these things. It is not selfish of you to miss him.It is only natural. I know you are glad he is not suffering anymore.

My husband passed away Nov 22 2009 and I dread Valentine's day. He use to bring me flowers and candy.I still miss him a lot.He was so sick. He said he didn't want to die in the hospital.So he went to be with the Lord in his sleep right beside me.

Our church is having a Valentine's party and I don't want to go but I have been asked to bring the dessert so am going. I really cannot wait for it to be over with but maybe it won't be so bad with my sisters and brothers in Christ around.I hope I don't cry. Last year my daughter and grandchildren were with me.

I hope you have someone with you tomorrow. It will make it a bit easier to bear. Just remember we are here for you and we care. Keep posting. You are not alone.

My Beautiful Valentine (:
by: TrishJ

My husband never forgot a Valentines day. He got my birthday mixed up one year ~ thought it was our anniversary instead (actually bought the wrong card). Never did he forget Valentines day. I could always tell he poured over the cards until he found just the right one. There was always some type of message there that actually meant something to me. He died on December 3rd. Someone else posted that we have to learn to say ~ they died ~ not that they left us. I was actually saying he left me. My husband would've never left me if the choice was his. He would be here this Valentine's day had he been able to choose. I'll miss not getting a card and the roses he always sent (that I had to pay for when the charge bill arrived) ~ I always teased him about that. My grandson told me he will be my "Balentime" this year (He's 3). God's blessing to you and all of us who are missing our wonderful Valentines this year.

Valentines day
by: M Mack

We all wish we had just a little more time or one last moment with the one we loved. That would be incredible but then, it would be even harder to move forward. Valentines day is different for everyone, memories take over and yes, they are sad. I believe that if a certain day meant a lot to you as a couple, our Sweethearts are around us everywhere. They don't forget us, we just don't get to have them the way we used to. Jessie is here in spirit because he loved you so. I pray for peace in our lives without that that special someone. My prayers for you and all of us to survive this grief.
