Never expected to be widowed so young. The whole prospect of dating again since my last "real" date was probably 37 years ago is pretty weird to be honest, but I'm open.
This photo thing just popped into my head. Any thoughts?
Re: Removing your late husbands pictures.
That is a good topic for me also. My husband only died last February but I do not think I could get on with life without his pictures around. In fact, when I had the Memorial Service for him, I dug up as many "living, happy" photos of him as I could and came across some I had forgotten about. I managed to find frames to fit some and now proudly display them. My current house does not have the nooks and crannies my old house had, so they are mostly in my bedroom. It may seem strange but I still write to him in a journal every night (mostly) and hold a favorite picture of the day (or night). I even found some old letters he wrote to me while I was in school before we were married. It was quite a surprise and boy did they get me through some rough days and nights. Preserve your memories however you can as long as it does not become an excessive compulsion. I think we all will know when the time is right to give them their own spot. Heck, I just had a guy wish me goodnight after 15 min. back in my house because he doesn't like dogs. I have a 15 yr. old pup he wouldn't even look at. So I say -Good Riddance to him!! I don't know if I wandered to far off the topic but hope something made sense.
Have a Happy, Successful New Year.
YES!!!!!! No picture!
Is he gone or is he not?
Are you ready for a new relationship or are you not?
The instant I see a photo of a widower's dead wife, I tell myself, "Sorry, bub, but you are not ready to move on."
And if you're not ready, dear Pink Sistah...move aside, please, so that they can get to ME.
