Re: Butch passed away on October 9th, at peace and at home
I'm glad you had a better day today. It was cold & sunny here also. I guess I have to agree that getting up early is better than the long dark lonely nights. I tend to do the same as you. Getting things done & organized in the early hours. I also have an indoor hot tub spa, so some days I do "luxuriate" & read for a while. There too tho' there is sadness as it is a 2 person spa that we sometimes enjoyed together. I too check this site & my emails, then sometimes look at some of the news on line however most of that is also depressing! My sister gave me a journal & I have yet to be able to write in it, however, it has been 8 weeks since Jim passed away & Sunday it will be 2 months, so I think it is time to start. I think it will be helpful. I like the idea of group hugs, so will send them along too!
Every one keep taking care of yourselves. I know our husbands would want us to do that & to be strong. This site & all of you help to make that possible for all of us.
