Someone commented on another posting on the other board, that just because our spouses are gone, it doesn't mean that we can't draw strength from them. I found that enlightening, and it holds true for most situations. Jerry and I grew up together, being married for so long, and we faced life together, and we also relied on each other for strength and advice. Now , as I think about having a ''Hopeful Heart'' - to try to find love again, I feel very much alone. Maybe more alone, because I have no frame of reference. I know that Jerry would want me to be happy, and find a new love, but I miss bouncing my thoughts off him. I don't tell any of our friends what I am thinking - they would be surprised that I am needing , or looking for a new love, and I don't know how they would handle it. I don't want to ''tell'' anyone of my friends, because I have no beginning, middle or end to this, and nothing too much to ''report'' - but I feel the need to talk about it nonetheless. So glad we have this site. You guys are helping a great deal.
