"I thought I would always have him; ...the heart of everything has gone out of life forever; ...and it was terrible trying to live without him."
--Mabel Hubbard Bell
Good Mourning Widows.
Joy to you and me!
Today we honor famous widow Mabel Hubbard Bell wife of famous inventor Alexander Graham Bell to our JOY-ous club.
That's right Widows, the club nobody wants to JOY-n. Ever.
Mabel and Alexander married on July 11, 1877.
A deaf mute, Mabel's handicap spurred Alexander on to create a device that would allow him to communicate with her.
Mabel became a widow in 1923 at age 66. 5 months after Alexander's death, she got sick with pancreatic cancer and died.
"During WWI, Mabel sponsored benefits to raise money for the Red Cross. She also helped build life boats for the U. S. Navy and got women involved in her work."
Q: What do you get when you saw a comedian in two?
A: A half-wit.
"Strength through joy."
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
Just do it.
I dare you!
Have an abundantly JOY-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
