Thank you Pat. Likewise to you. I’m seven years out and it still pretty much s&@cks.

It’s not easy, that’s for sure. It took me almost a decade to feel “normal,” whatever that is.

It’s not near easy or normal for me. Other widows seem to recovering/coping better than I.
Getting to tomorrow. Thanks.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas Pat. Wishing you all the best in, the coming New Year! Thank you so very much. I ordered your book, Grief The Inside Story. I gift wrapped it for Christmas did not open the packet until Christmas Day! It is a gift to me. I am sure I will gain a lot of helpful information from your book. I wrote in my journal last night to my dear beloved soul mate. Another Christmas without him. Some say it gets easier, but I do not feel this way. Thanks again in appreciation.

Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries never get easier, but ordinary days (to the extent that any day is ordinary) do get easier the further we get from them, which seems impossible to me. The further away we get, the longer we’ve had to live without them.
I’m glad you got the book. I hope it helps with understanding if nothing else.
