I'm kind of proud of myself. My late husband hurt me in the worst way possible. Yet I forgave him.....twice. I was maybe about 85% healed when we found out he had terminal cancer. I walked through hell. With him at first, and then holding him up for the last 4 months. I held his hand while he died, which was a VERY difficult thing for me to do. I honored him with a party while he could still appreciate it, that featured friends and family telling him how much he had meant to them. And then put on a lovely memorial after he died.

I am still grieving for him. I had a crying jag yesterday. I have worried about how those might affect my guy/boyfriend/lover. He says "Call me so I can come over and hold you while you cry, and you need to cry." Yesterday I did and he did.

But I am a tough and resilient woman. My gut is pretty well educated. And I have been choosing to be happy my entire life.

The start of my new love was very - VERY - confusing to me. But with much thought I decided to go for the gusto. I've been doing that my entire life and see no reason to change at age 64.

After winter comes the spring....

My SO and I had rekindled a high school relationship 28 years later, after my divorce from XWH and my split from an XSO. But I don't consider the few dates the beginning of our relationship until the night my XWH died. I spent the last three days in the hospital with my XWH while he lost his battle with cancer and was at his side for his last breath. And that night, my SO held me as I cried myself to sleep. I think it takes a huge heart to hold someone who is crying for a lost love, no matter what the circumstances were. I love my SO for many reasons, but that moment is my favorite one.

redvixen, what you said:
