    I continue to pray for you. Grief is so difficult to deal with. When I could prepare myself because I knew something was going to trigger it, I did much better. Other times, something would pop into my life and cause deep sadness to surface and send me into tears.

    I was able to return to college during my worst time. This really helped me because the people I was in classes with had no idea of the tragedy of my father’s murder, the trial, etc. that I was dealing with. I could stay immersed in something that had nothing to do with my grief. Then, I could choose when I wanted to sort through the details and deal with my thoughts and emotions. I will pray for you to find ways to cope and have a way to find time to focus on something new that won’t trigger the waves of grief. You have been through so much.

    I always remember that God wastes nothing! My life took a turn that was unexpected about 6 months into my grieving process. God gave me a platform to share my testimony with others. When I could see the good that sharing my experiences did to help others, I was better able to deal with my thoughts and emotions.

    I know that having your children are a great comfort. But, dealing with so much that you were able to share with your husband in the past only serves as a constant reminder of your loss. I will pray that you will find ways to prepare for times that will trigger the emotions of grief. It will take time, but it will get better. The memories will bring joy and not sadness. Loosing your husband is much different than loosing parents, but God is faithful and He will see you through even during your times of loneliness. He will turn your mourning into joy and build a future for you that you could never have imagined.

    • Thank you, Pam, for your words of encouragement. I’m sure I will be re-reading them in the weeks to come when I’m feeling down.
      I can honestly by God’s grace say that God is good all the time. I don’t have to understand why He allows sorrow in our life to know that He is good and only desires what is best for us.
      Thank you also for your prayers because I know that sometimes when I can’t pray myself God uses the prayers of others to carry me through.
