I have no idea how a new relationship will turn out and I'm completely comfortable with that.
I don't know if I'm coming or going and I'm completely comfortable with this.
I'm not feeling lonely, and this is a new feeling.
I just saw my neighbor, a very recent widower, who was married for 53 years. His beloved wife was suffering for the last seven years and he took care of her at home until she died. Now he's been alone four months. He reached out to me and I'm happy to be there.
I talked to another neighbor yesterday. Her husband is fighting his new diagnosis of cancer. My first impulse is to help in any way I can.
There was a time I had nothing left to give. Now I have enough to give.
I think this is Post widowhood.
