It is the Season

It is the season for giving, so give attention to someone who needs it. Ask them about their holiday plans, New Year’s resolutions, best holiday purchase – it doesn’t matter what as long as you take the time to listen and connect. The joy of giving is what comes back, forgetting about your own troubles and making someone else feel special.

Remember, when you are socializing, turn to someone you haven’t spoken to yet and give them your attention. It will do you both some good.

    I know that the recovery from the loss of a spuose varies from person to person. But honestly, I don’t know how I would cope with the loss of my spuose. How long was it before you actually felt normal and could go on with your life? I have a young son, and he is very attached to his dad. Was it harder on the kids (if you have young children) then it was on you? I’m just really wondering how do widows/widowers survive the loss of a spuose? Please no rude answers, thank you.

      I think we survive best when we speak to other widows that have already traveled along the grief journey before us. They understand the pain and the emotional ups and downs. It helps to share with those that really know the lonliness and grief we are going through. Take care, Mary Francis The Sisterhood of Widows
