Quote for the Week

What lies behind us and what lies befrore us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those of us who walk through the widowsphere have rough times, painful times behind us. Times when we lost the person who mattered most. But I know that no matter what happened then or what will happen in the future, within all of us is a core of strength. It's kept us going when we wanted to give up, give in. I used to fall apart over the smallest thing; now that I've experienced the "biggest thing," the loss of my husband, I feel I can handle just about anything, don't you? We're all stronger than we ever imagined. Because we had no choice, we kept going and we'll keep on going.

Have a good week, and give yourself credit for being a survivor. See you in seven.

I too have often thought that there is not much that can ever happen in the future, that will ever compare to the death of my husband. And if I could survive that, there is nothing I cannot.

I have always loved that quote. And I agree, a silver lining from all of this is our strength. We are a force!

The problem with the link to my blog is that there are not 2 d's with sainted and dead, only one. Stupid I know, I thought it looked better with ony one d and didn't understand at the time the importance of proper spelling.

Live and learn, I am a novice with this computer thing.

Take care-
