Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Hi Sharon,

I went to bed early last night. I now have 3 dogs. Candy, just turned 15 is a bichon. She is the bridge between Harry and I. She has Cushings and so I try to keep her happy and healhy as best as I can. I got Jazz a Yorkshire Terrier 4 years ago. She helped rejuvenate Candy. Then earlier this year I adopted my late girlfriend's Maltese. Now he is a boy and I prefer girl dogs but this was a gesture of love and we can't always choose. So when I go to bed, I have these 3 love bunnies sharing my king-size bed. It is rather hilarious and comforting. 

Your loss is so recent so just take your time and face each day as it comes. If you feel like crying: cry. The tears are a balm on our souls at this time. Hugs, Linda

Hi Linda,

  My wonderful husband and very best friend of 30 years died in January 2015.  It has been a difficult time, but I try to remember all the wonderful memories we shared and Al is at rest now.  It sure is different doing things for one after being a twosome for so long, taking life one day at a time.

I got myself a beautiful kitty that is a lot of company and has become the queen of my house  Pets are great.  Thanks for responding and your kindness!  Sharon

Barb it was so good to read your message a few minutes ago.  I know we lost track of each other over the yrs.  Often wondered what happened to John - always had lots of food for thought.  I see you have given up the house but never the garden - I'm still at it also but the deer eat it as fast as I plant.  I remarried 3 yrs. ago after 6 yrs alone.  Many changes as 2 stubborn seniors almagnamate lol. I wish you the very best with your upcoming surgeries. Will keep in touch.

Hi Sharon,

I lost Harry 7 years ago, July 9th after 38 years. I have downsized to a townhouse and live with my pets (dogs and 1 parrot). Have children and grandchildren and aging in laws to keep me busy as well as a job. I am contemplating retiring again. Please feel free to talk or ask us if we can be of any consolation. Linda

Wow!!   It sure took me awhile to get to this comment spot!!!

Welcome to the group Sharon.... and my sympathies of the passing of your husband/partner.

If you get this, please let us know a wee bit about yourself.

My husband Eric died 12 years ago so in all this time I've gone through a lot of changes.   I finally sold my home in the country and am renting an apartment here in Ontario, and renting a house in British Columbia during the winter.

As you read through our previous posts, you will see how we're handling the ups & downs in our lives... not easy at times.

Wow, what a really neat Father's Day...I assume lots of photo memories of that, eh?

Lovely here now, after a pouring rain start at 6:30 a. m.  I love when the weather people are this direction, anyway!!

Comment by Linda Blaschek on June 21, 2015 at 6:42pm

Hi Lynne, Happy First Day of Summer! We were so lucky today with the weather. It was a given that it was going to rain all day and it was sunny and at this moment the sky is blue and not a cloud to be seen. We spent the afternoon celebrating father's day with my father in law. We had 4 generations going from 1 to 88. Gotta enjoy while we can. Hugs to all and prayers to Addie.

Greetings to Rocket, Linda and Barb!

Are you closer to your son, now. Barb or did you stay where you were?

Comment by Lynne G. on June 21, 2015 at 6:31pm

Cynthia...very sorry to read of Addie's recent problems.  She is a fighter, for sure, and I send you all my best wishes.
