As widows we must be careful of our perspective.
It is so difficult to find the pieces after the death of our mate.
It seems difficult to sort through the grief, sorrow and pain.
This is a “perspective” that was given to me after the Homegoing of my husband:
“We can shed tears that He is gone, or we can smile because he has lived.
We can close our eyes and pray that he will come back, or we can open our eyes and see all that he has left us.
Our hearts can be empty because we cannot see him, or we can be full because of the love we shared.
We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live yesterday, or we can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
We can remember him and only that he is gone, or we can cherish his memory and let it live on.
We can close our minds, be empty, and turn back, or we could do what he would want…
Smile, open our eyes, love, and go on!”
