A few years ago, my husband of nearly twenty years died of cancer. The love of my life. We had been high school sweethearts, and married at the age of eighteen. I was devastated, heartbroken, and totally consumed by grief. I couldn't eat or sleep. The noise in my head was so loud and my heart so heavy, I could barely breathe.
Blinded by fear, it, had become my new constant companion. Without him, I couldn't and didn't want to go on. I was struggling to go on with my life.
Just when I needed it most, a feeling of calm washed over me, the noise finally stopped, and I heard a voice as clear as day, "you are loved." The tears stopped falling and I could see it all so clearly. I was loved. My family loved me unconditionally and I felt it with every fiber of my being. How could I possibly think of causing them so much pain and suffering?
I knew at that moment, with their love, I could and would survive my pain...And I have!

That was heart felt. I'm only 18 and I'm in love with my high school sweetheart. We got together at age 16. He is my EVERYTHING. In relation if that were to happen to me, I'd feel the exact same way. But yes you are loved unconditionally by your family, and maker. So blessings and live everyday with happiness and love.

It's a moving story, I feel your pain because I am now in in that position only slightly different. Oftentimes we loose ourselves in our emotion and can see nothing but our own pains. We are too blind to see that our family is behind us, always there. You lost a person you truly love but it doesn't mean he's gone forever. Treasure the memories you had together because if you do, he's in your heart and will forever stay there.
