Time to Give Back

For many of the first years of my widowhood, I was a taker. My friends that I had at that time, (and you know who I'm talking about) were my "life support" system. They essentially kept me alive. They nurtured me until I was strong enough to walk on my own. They were the foundation of my grief journey and they each hold a special place in my heart. If it weren't for these friends that I took from, my journey would have taken a different course. Yes, I was very selfish at times, only thinking of ME, taking my friends' time from their families so that I could have their time to get through one more day. I could never repay these friends for all their generosity and compassion, but I am now in a position where I can help others. I will pay it forward. I thank God for these friends that were such a blessing in my time of grief!!
