My 19 year old daughter was in a car wreck yesterday on her way back to college. She is bruised up, but fine. The car is totalled, it was a Honda civic. There was a pileup on the freeway and the car in front of her just jammed on its breaks, she hit it and then spun around and another car hit her in the side. The car was unrecognizable. What a blessing she is okay. I took her the hour more on to school. I called her dad after she had called me. We arrived about the sametime. He offered no comfort for me, or even acted like I was there. My daughter and I just held each other and sobbed. I stayed the night with her just to make sure she was okay. I am now back home. The interesting thing in this was that I was seperate from my husband in dealing with this. I realized, he didn't offer any comfort to me, that I am not any part of him except now through our children. The break is there. My daughters friend and her two year old daughter were supposed to ride back with her, but changed their minds at the last minute. Thank God for miracles. Her friend would not have survived. So I can be alone and do things, my children are the most important people in my life.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
