You are going along doing really good and then out of the blue the grief and loneliness hits you and throws you to your knees with the pain of missing that beloved someone who made your life whole. 

You can't hide or run away from it, you just have to survive through it. 

President Russel M. Nelson has said:

"Irrespective of age, we mourn for those loved and lost. Mourning is one of the deepest expressions of pure love...

Moreover, we can't fully appreciate joyful reunions later without tearful separations now. The only way to take sorrow out of death is to take love out of life".

I am so looking forward to that joyful reunion. 


  1. As you speak about your love for Jim not only will it help others to understand how you feel but it will also help you heal.
    Be Safe!

    It's about time.

  2. Love and hugs to you Sandie!

  3. I think of you often, wonder how you are doing. We are sending love and hugs, too.

  4. It must be so hard for you. I would think a husband of so many years is like losing a Siamese twin. There is probably no way to get out of suffering, but he sounded like a wonderful guy and I'm sorry for your loss

  5. Sometimes I am just going about my "normal" day when I notice tears in my eyes. It just happens with no warning. I don't mind, it is comforting. I guess something just happened that reminds me of Norma or of something we did together. I am happy to read that you have friends around you, they are so important at this time. I am thinking of you and sending positive thoughts Sandie! Take care.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
