Spring is in the yard

Spring is a time of rebirth in the yard.  I love to see how the change in the yard turns green and colorful in one month’s time.  This year it looks like the flowers are coming in nicely and with the help of a landscaper I am going to have neat beds and a yard I can relax in. My memorial stones for my husband Mike and even our dog Lucky only enhance my appreciation that I can still live in my home after becoming a widow and I can continue to care for something important.

At the age of 51 I unexpectedly became a widow. For the first 6 months after my husband died, I was in shock and numb. I journaled and with the help of friends, family and therapists was able to get back to living my old life, even if it is now very different. Before I was married, I had spent a semester in England and backpacked around Europe. My husband and I moved from New York to California for 8 years and started a family. Travelling took a back seat to raising a family and going to work everyday. Since the loss of my husband I have visited a lot of places with family and friends and took a solo trip to Thailand. I am enjoying sharing my stories and adventures as well as some of my insights to how I am traveling the path of being a widow. I hope to share my stories and adventures as well as some thoughts on being a middle aged widow. While I have some great experiences traveling to Thailand and cruising to Central America, some of my adventures involve a trip to see a Broadway show in nearby Manhattan and a shopping trip at Bed, Bath and Beyond. If I can inspire anyone to go out and continue to live a good life that would be my greatest accomplishment.
