I just joined catholicmatch.com. Tonight is the first New Year's Eve without my recently departed husband. And tomorrow (Jan. 1) is my 50th birthday. Just wondering how other widows/widowers cope with the sadness and loneliness, while still holding on to hope for the future?
I am sorry for your loss, Tracy. I feel your pain. Holidays and special events are the hardest days to cope with. I lost my husband more than three years ago. Try to surround yourself with friends and family. If you need someone to talk to, please send me a message.
Praying that 2013 will bring you peace, hope and blessings.
