It can be said that there is a certain amount of wisdom that comes from the heart wrenching grief that you suffer after the loss of your spouse.This wisdom may not be obvious in the beginning, but a year or so down the line, you wake up one day and realize just how wise you are, not only about grief, but about many other aspects of your life.The question then presents itself – is this wisdom worth the price of what you have to lose to acquire it?
I have been a widow since July 18, 2009, and that seems to take up a lot of my life right now. I am determined to go through every step of the grieving process - I don't ever want to have to go back and start over. I am a mother of five, grandmother of two and have worked all of my working career as a litigation assistant. I love to read and sew, and spent many years working in musical theater which is a passion my husband and I shared.
