I just breathed a deep sigh after reading this. Sadness but also comfort. Hugs and love and peace to you and your loved ones. πŸ’–

I have found that writing is my salvation since my husband died, as well. What a lovely place to go home to.

Music--yes! And silence, blessed silence, too. Peace, Ramona.

Ramona, you are probably aware there are some really good books by really good writers about losing their husbands and advice for moving forward. Let me know if you would like me to list some titles.

It's a completely undesirable rite of passage, isn't it? And you are doing it so beautifully. Thank you for sharing it, Ramona.

"I think I’m going to be fine here." I think so, too. Surely the birds will come for the music even if they can't come for the bird seed! Trust the process. And, welcome home.

How disarmingly intimate to read your thoughts on your first day alone at a place you love in 27 years. I am sorry for the empty space in your life that was Ed’s. And I’ll be back to see how it goes.
