Better days ahead.....

....when things were tough or weren't going like we hoped, G would always say "Better days ahead."

Watching this, I think my better days are behind.

I hope, one day he will lead me to "better days ahead".

I'm so sorry for your loss. I haven't lost a spouse but I have lost a child and I have felt like this (and still do) many, many times.

(I know that they are totally different. I just feel so bad for your pain.)

Oh, Kim, I am so sorry.

Want to share something w/ you, but it may be long. Will try to make it quick....

Two days after my youngest was born, one of my old friends had twin girls. She was in the hospital the same time as me (I was there for about a week due to complications).

Seven days after giving birth, she died unexpectedly of an aneurysm. She also had a 3-year-old and 5-year-old as well as her husband. She was only 33.

She and her husband were so in love and did everything together. He could not work for 10 months and was barely functioning. He lost his faith, and any motivation to really live, except for his children.

About one year after her death, he told me that he was finally able to look at pictures of her and smile rather than cry.

It's been nine years now and he is remarried (he married a few years after her death) to a woman with three kids who call him "dad." He's so happy and his life is so full. And his faith returned.

He never thought those better days would be ahead of him, but they were. I know it's impossible to imagine it now, but they will come for you.

You will be in my prayers.

I really wanted to say something profound, uplifting, inspirational. But I can't. What you are going through is my worst nightmare, but how you are handling it is an ispiration. You are, no doubt, very strong and resiliant. You will keep on moving foward.

Kim, the old adage says it best --

"It's always darkest just before dawn."

You are a naturally happy, fun-loving person. Yes, the fun and happy has gone out of your life for the time being. You are still to close to March right now.

As the months roll on by, you'll find the pain easier to live with. It won't to away, but it won't be as overwhelming and hurtful.

You have a wonderful talent for having fun -- for enjoying life. Oh, the joy of the Toxx-Mahal parties. hehehe

The fun will come back into your life.

Crap, even though I'm a young widow, too, now I'm afraid of saying one of those damn "wrong things." I'm such a social misfit. Even as a REJECT I can manage to be a misfit.

It's darkest just before the dawn is, in a way, true. I thought of it often. The only problem is that no one can tell you how long that "just" will be.

I know it will lighten. I'm not sure if that helps now. But it may help to know that I was there and I am not now.

Much love to you.
