All of us that are grieving are feeling a tremendous loss of purpose, we've always known a life that was certain, we were certain that our loved one would be there for us, never really thought otherwise.. It's such a difficult adjustment, so heart-breaking- I watch way too much TV just to keep myself from thinking, it's too depressing.. I was reading something and a woman who had lost her husband asked her pastor, "what does anything matter?" his reply was "because nothing matters, everything matters" huh? He explained that looking long term or planning ahead cannot matter, everything that you do at this very instant is what matters. You should be living life right now, anyone living for tomorrow isn't really living".. I don't know how I feel about that- I'm sure we all had made plans for the future with our loved one, that's what makes it so heart-breaking thinking of what could have been. We're all in this together and I'm sending hugs to all of you. Christine
