|Welcome to My World|
If you are reading this, then something terrible has happened. First, my sincerest condolences. Please know that I wish you well. I cry not for you but with you, because I am a widow, too.
There are things every new widow needs to know. And just as a businessman carries a briefcase filled with important papers and files, a new widow needs a special case--a griefcase--a safe place to store her important information--the stuff that will guide her as she processes her grief.
That said, I would like to tell you that things will get better. But they won't. Let's face it, better would be to hear the front door swing open and those hungry words, "Honey, I'm home! What's for dinner?"
Your life is forever changed now, and things will never get better. The best I can offer is a different word. Because that's exactly what your life is now.
