LOSING YOUR LOVE IS LOSING YOUR HISTORY

MISSING THE HISTORY In the long months after my husband died, what I missed most was HIM -- his person, his presence, the joy of feeling completed by another human being. Over the long term (5 years), with the rawest of grief abated, what I miss most is our shared history. After more than 30 years of living and loving together, a couple can speak volumes with a single glance, feel contentedly linked during periods of silence, understand thoughts expressed in incomplete sentences, or not expressed not at all....more

Blogger Guilt, The Life of a 32 Year Old Single Girl, and a Clothing Crisis

I have major guilt over the lack of entries in my blog entry.  I was so good at the beginning - I was blogging everyday.  But I didn't do what people told me to do...and now the guilt has set in.  I mean I was expecting it....I am Catholic after all.  There is always guilt! But in the blogging world there is no confessional.  So I can only keep moving forward and trying to do better and in the meantime, take my penance. As a peace offering, I offer up a story of today's panic attack which involved me possibly forgetting what I wore on my last da...more
