It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

With the weekend coming, I have thoughts of visitors , one quite small and looking forward to a break in being so dreadfully alone and sad.
It is very cold here. Very.
And this is still Autumn ?
I shudder to think what Winter is going to be like and will I ever come out of the house ??

Plans and ideas have all been set aside.
Most were for made for two, now things are different when there is only one.
I am feeling my way.
Not sure about where I will live, what I will do ... just when life seemed so full of certainty and contentment, I am thrown into this new life.
Not one I would have ever ever chosen .

  1. Start with small things. Don't try to solve everything at once. Some things will never be ok. Don't try to fight that. But look for an element of joy in each day, even if it is just getting out of bed and making coffee. That could be a really big thing! In the meantime, I keep you in my prayers and hope for you. And wait for a post each day.

  3. Beautiful views, Scarlett! Take one day at a time and enjoy the visitors coming, especially the small one.

    Thinking of you.

    Best wishes,

  4. Day by day, Candice....

  5. Your vistas are so beautiful and peaceful. You know, just because he isn't there, you can still talk to him. Sending good vibes and wishes for your comfort.

  6. It is said that time is a great healer, and I do believe that is true. You are such a wonderful writer - I hope you can find some comfort in it. I am a stranger to you, but I do wish you comfort and enjoy reading every one of your posts.

  7. thinking of you Candice and sending you my love....

  8. Candice, you are brave to put your thoughts down...........hopefully by doing this, and sharing your thoughts of uncertainly for the future - which of course are a normal part of grieving - you will eventually be able to move forward. He will be with you in ways only you will feel, but he will be there to help you dear I'm sure.

    It's so hard to know what to say - I can only guess what this must be like for you. I'm just praying you will be stronger as each day passes.

    Love, Mary
