Tuesday, October 15, 2013

mY HUSBAND WENT TO GLORY LAND ON OCTBOER 2ND and the pain I feel is hard to describe. Who knew 41 years could seem too short a time to spend with someone! I loved him like we had just gotten married and the card he got for my birthday in August said I still took his breath away when he looked me and I felt the same about him!! Where do I go from here..........

    It's so rare to find such a beautiful love like yours and I'm so sorry to hear of this incredible loss emoticon
I'm also lucky to have found my soul mate as you did yours and isn't it amazing that although 41 yrs sounds like a lifetime it still wasn't enough for a love like yours. I'm sure you feel lost, broken I know I would but know he's still living within your heart and he'd want you to pick yourself up and enjoy your life.
I have tears in my eyes cause I'm thinking how I'd feel and it's tough when you lose your best friend, soul mate, beautiful kind hearted husband, loving father and the love of your life, my heart feels broken for you!
Know that we're here to support you in anyway we can even if it's for you to cry and vent here, your still loved!
I'd like to add you as a friend and please if you ever need anyone to vent to, my eyes are wide open! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My Journey

Saturday, July 06, 2013

I look at myself sometimes and wonder how did I get here -- I use to hear people say she let herself go and I really didn't understand what they meant years ago.... but I do now. When I was 125 I always thought I was too fat Oh to be that size again! I didn't appreciate it than but by the same token -- I'm different on the inside now.. My weight maybe more BUT MY OUTLOOK IS DIFFERENT!! I want to put more healthy things in my body.... years ago I maintained my weight by eating JUNK FOOD and no good food.... I would save myself for sweets ,,, not realizing the damage I was doing. But I'm older now -- and though my weight is not what I'd like it to be -- I AM BETTER!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Staying Motivated

Monday, June 10, 2013

I'm so grateful for SparkPeople -- you are here 7 days a week 24 hours a day -- just reading success stories -- seeing new recipes -- reading blogs -- are keeping me going - with my husband's illness I don't want to start eating to comfort myself --I WAS STARTING To WAVER- and now I must remember to come back to you for support-- I need to take care of me to take care of him. The Dr. recommended Hospice I wasn't ready to hear that and what I'm feeling is hard to describe........... but I do know I want to be my best self to be there for him. We have been married 41 years and I thought the day we married I loved HIM as much AS I ever would BUT OH! LOVE GOES DEEPER AS THE DAYS AND WEEKS AND YEARS GO BY!!

    I'm so sorry for what you are going through. You and your dear husband are in my thoughts, and prayers.

I am glad to hear that you are making the extra effort to take care of yourself as well. I 'm sure that is not always an easy thing to do. emoticon emoticon emoticon

  That's must certainly a time most people want to comfort ourselves in any way possible. I encourage to take mini breaks, as to not burn out from exhaustion.

I'm sorry to hear they want him in hospice, but some of these people are so incredible and gifted at what they do.My Dad and Step mom did this. You know it gives you precious time with them, with the best care. So much more loving and gracious than many hospitals .

Often they do special comforting things, like massage their feet, sing over them,read, pay music. May God go with you and hold you tight and comfort you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This is so sweet to hear, of your ongoing love for your mate. It's so hard for people these days to have that. Bless you! Can you afford in home care? My folks had a girl come a couple of days a week to help with things, and a Nurse to check my Dad's vitals.

  I feel your pain and I am so sorry for what you are going through.

Yes, you have to stay as up beat as possible to keep your own spirit, soul and body as healthy as possible because the Lord has a plan for you to full fill and you are going to need your full complete health, strength, energy and zest and love of living life to the fullest to complete what He has laid out for you to do.

Never forget how much you are loved and valued in His body. emoticon emoticon emoticon
