Something I read just made me think of a statement that a man in India made to me. We were talking about having children. He is an infertility specialist that deals with men only. Anyway he was remarking on the miracle of being a mom of seven healthy children. I told him yes I was blessed, but being a mom for such a long time was not always easy. I said that having a child at 40 really threw me for awhile. He looked at me and said yes you have been a mother many times, but your youngest has only been a child once. That statement changed me. I came home thinking that I needed to remember that profound statement. Well each of us is going through something that we have never been through before, be kind to yourself. Growing is not easy.

When nobody is interested, aloneness is the only path available. Online if you don't look like, or are, a celebrity or model, forget it. Time passes but nothing changes.
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
