Another new year. I find it amazing that I have been able to live without my husband for a little over three years now when in 36+ years of marriage we had never been apart for any longer than a week. I have to give God all the credit because without Him in my life, I could not have survived and for this long.
For a very long time I struggled to figure out what my purpose is in this life now. I found it very frustrating and after a time, I decided that for me, it is best to simply take life one day at a time and not worry about “trying” to set goals and get my life as a widow neatly arranged. Each day brings its challenges. Some days are easier than others. Some days are more emotional with grief triggers that still come out of nowhere.
One of my aunts said it best in an email that she wrote to me. She said:
“And now we look forward to whatever God has planned for us knowing that He will lead us through it.”
