My Mourning Joy - January 16, 2007

"It's best to keep your troubles pretty much to yourself, 'cause half the people you'd tell 'em to won't give a damn, and the other half will be glad to hear you've got 'em."

Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.

It's cold here 20 miles north from where the World Trade Center used to be. Temperature's a dropping, wind's a blowing, and Izzy's a scratching at the door. Looks like snow's heading this way.

There's a mountain of mail waiting to be opened, a dream to catch, and a broken heart to mend.

Ahhhhh, even the tough stuff is My Mourning Joy!

What's yours?

As every widow knows, it's one giant step forward, two steps back. Then start all over. Again.

Have an abundantly joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.

Thanks for being there.

And until we meet again.

  1. Linda,

    Your website resonates with people who are not widowed. Finding joy and meaning in every day is the best strategy for appreciating life's gifts.

    Keep up your excellent work.

    Happy Trails,
