    Oh my goodness! You speak what I feel.. what many of us probably feel. The things we took for granted while we have them. One of the things I have learned from my grieving is to take nothing for granted anymore. Everything in my life has taken on more meaning and more urgency. Living in the moment has become my normal. I want to do all the things. I forced myself to do this in the beginning but now it has just become my new normal. But if I could go back…

    Your thoughts and words are so on point for me. Six years later and I almost feel “normal” again. If that is even a thing. Everything died with my husband. I feel like I’ve had to put everything back together. I feel like I have to “live” now for both of us! So much to do! I’m not scared anymore. I’m no longer grieving what should have been. I’m excited about all the possibilities and good things that are in the future. Whatever they may be!
