My name is Candy Feathers and on the morning of November 10, 2009, I became a widow at the age of 57. Bob was the only man I ever dated and my “first” in everything. We had 36 years, 4 months, and 10 days together and I will be forever grateful for that gift.
Two months later on Jan. 2, 2010, my mom joined my husband Bob in heaven and 2 months after that my dad followed. I am the mother of 4 grown daughters and have 4 sons-in-law, 9 grandchildren here on earth and 1 in heaven.
Things I like to do are reading, taking long drives, wearing flip flops as many months of the year as I can, spending time on the beach, watching birds eating from my bird feeder, the colors of a peacock as well as the colors purple and yellow, lots and lots of natural light, and writing. I am a romantic person at heart. I am also an introvert who is most comfortable sitting on the sidelines watching and listening to people. I would rather be outdoors on a riding mower than inside cooking. I love the smell of watermelon, fresh cut grass, and “Beautiful” perfume in essential oil form. I enjoy texting although it’s nice to get a phone call at least once a day.
I am very passionate about helping widows and am moving towards finding God’s purpose for my life.
My hope is that there will be something shared or written here that will touch the heart of a widow or even the heart of a widow’s family member or friend so that all can be comforted or be enabled to comfort. I will welcome any comments from the readers for that will be my comfort.
