It looks like it was almost two months ago since I last posted on aftergiving.com. Outwardly I would say my life remains much the same. I still do my volunteer job on Tuesdays. I love the fact that this job provides respite for caregivers, and I love working with their carees and the other volunteers. I also continue to help with homeschool of my local son’s family on Wed mornings and also go to their home on Thursdays nights for supper. These things too are a blessing for me.
I am part of a private Christian Widow’s group on Facebook. This has been good also, because I believe we as widows are a blessing and encouragement to each other. It also is great to be part of a group of ladies who truly understands the challenges of being a widow.
As an offshoot of that private widow’s Facebook page I was able to meet the lady who runs that Facebook page. This lady also has a blog at WidowsChristianPlace.com. Further she is an author of a book written for widows. The book is called Postcards from the Widow’s Path. It is based on the book of Ruth in the Bible. The book of Ruth has three widows.
Anyhow I was able to meet her at a restaurant about an hour from my house in late September. You can see a picture of us at her blog site www.widowschristianplace.com/
The pictures of that meeting are shown on her Monday, October 22 post. She also published a two part “interview” with me at the same site on Wed., October 17 and Thursday, October 18. For that you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “older posts” to find those. Part two of the interview is above part one because it is newer. I would say answering the interview questions stirred up emotions again, but if it helps one person, I am pleased.
So life moves on. On November 2 it will be 22 months since Wayne died and on January 2 it will be two years. I still miss Wayne, and there are sad moments each day. I will always miss Wayne I am sure. There are good moments again also, however. I am healing. My faith is helping me persevere and slowly heal. I am beginning to be excited about God’s plans for my future.
