Diana has me thinking on this. Yes, this is a widows/widowers board. But it's so much more than that, to me. I've read words of wisdom, encouragement, and love on here that have me speechless (not easy to do!), or have me think, yes, that's it EXACTLY. We're people, not just defined by the term widowed. And as time goes on, there's a lot of things I still need to talk about, like, the living our lives day to day struggles. If I want to complain about my bills, I can do it here. If I want to talk about what I cooked today, (turkey/mushroom meatloaf and Yukon gold mashed potatoes with gravy, btw), I can talk about it here. If I have a dream that disturbs me, I can talk about it here. It's talking/venting/even celebrating the new normal that's our lives, and the fact that the new normal doesn't go back to the old normal, and dealing with that - that's why I'm here. Plus, I love you guys! ((Huggies)) Marsha
