My first Valentine's Day without him

Well, I just spent my first Valentine's Day without my sweet husband... I guess I survived it ok. First thing was to visit my husband's resting place and give him some more flowers since it was a few weeks ago since I was there last.
then I signed off on his car and went to the first Liver Cancer Support Group. Sadly I was the only one there with the social worker and physician assistant which ended up not being such a bad thing. I ended up sharing lot's of information that was helpful to them.
then off to dinner with a friend since she and I don't have Valentine's. We celebrated at one of "OUR" favorite restaurants. He and I always enjoyed going there..
Now I sit alone tonight and reminisce about the good ole days. I do acknowledge that we did make lots of memories but it still hurts that he is gone and will never be here again to hold my hand, or kiss me or call me on the phone and call me "babe".
Happy Valentine's Day Paul.. I love and miss you so much.

Hello and know that we are all thinking of you at this difficult time.My dad will be gone 2 years this March. Mom still remembers dad walking down the walk with one single rose for her on Feb 14 2010. Good memory to have. Thank you for sharing. We will see and be with our loved ones again. Keep in touch.

Just wanted to say that I am so sorry for your loss. My husband has been battling for 2-1/2 years. I used to care about getting flowers or gifts, and going out to dinner for Valentines Day, and the only thing I truly cared about this year was just being with him and being thankful that we had another year together.

(((HUGS)))
Wish you peace in your heart.
