My dear and wondrous friends … tomorrow will be one week since My Dan died. I miss him so much I can barely breathe. Today I received 15 awful, dreaded copies of Dan’s death certificate. It was all I could do to keep from falling to my knees. But I made it home where I could speak with a couple of friends who made me laugh and remember and find my legs again. Here’s what I learned today:
1. No one should EVER be a widow or widower.
2. If that happens to you, you must be strong. Strong like Wonder Woman or Super Man.
3. If you feel desperate, it’s okay.
4. Tears will happen.
5. Tears will happen again.
