It's true, widowhood sucks, sez she of 7 years, 10 months and counting. But the really bad part of it does pass. - martha
A few years ago my father passed away and right after that my mother's heart condition got so bad the doctors said it was a matter of time, I was working 2 jobs and traveling back and forth between Florida and Pennsylvania, I was airing my frustrations to a coworker one day who said God only gives us what we can handle, my response was, I guess I should be impressed that God thinks I'm superman. There were days I was so tired and sad that I wanted to lay down and die on the spot, but you keep on going.I wish there were magical words to say and make pain disappear, but you and Phillip sound like you had something that a lot of people spend their whole life looking for and some never find. I am in no way comparing my experience to yours, they are very different, only to say the human spirit is strong, although there are times when it doesn't feel that way, all my best to you on your trip
Thank you, Ed. I didn't mean to hijack my own thread, but I'm struggling with this whole going back to our apartment in Atlanta and being there by myself for the first time since he died. I appreciate your compassion - I've just really lost interest in being strong - I think it's overrated.
Have a safe trip!
