Well hello fellow friends, It's 6:30 a.m. in the Great White Canadian North and I am just witing for my hubby to get off shift work. He works underground in a mine about 15000 metres under. He is going for his second year electical apprenticeship. I am an art and English teacher and we have two children. Nice to meet you. I feel good today. We recently moved up to this isolated small city, from a rural town of 200 people. I was feeling so awkward and shy. Literally like I was uprooted, tree roots mud and all. I recently made a goal to smile at people and try not to be so shy at meeting other mums, here. Well, yesterday I went for lunch with a friend and we met up with a couple who were in the same boat, only a smaller boat, navigating upstream. They had a baby a 3 year old and the housing shortage here, forced them to live in a ittle winterized guest cabin at a resort. Pretty rustic, they had only moved up here weeks ago and I have been here for months.Of course we all got to talking , and my friend, invited them(and the Mum to our little Bible Study of about four other women) She was very happy to meet some smiling mums. So now, at this Church I just started attending(went two times, so far) the moms group/bible study is inviting new people.In this small city there is quite a bomm gong on and it seems the more money people make the "busier" they become. Let's make an effort to welcome newcomers, here at ds an in the world we live. Luv in Christ. xoxoxoxo

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????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
