New Beginning . . . Yes:O)

This will be a year of new beginnings for me.  It's been almost two years since Dave aka Mr. Grumpy has passed away.  I really did not realized that until my sister Debbie pointed that out to me ( I can always count on my sister to shed some light into my life . . . thank you Debbie). Time to move on and get into life again.  I always try to encourage others and try to focus on being positive but when it comes to myself . . . forget it.  When you lose your spouse that you been married to forever . . you literally feel lost, everything changes.  I'm definitely tired of grieving that boy.  I was a little scare to move forward and face the unknown, but I want to do it now.  Believe me, it took a long time to get here :O)


  1. I can't imagine being where you are.... I can not believe that it has been over 4 months since Kenny died. I know that I will be there at some time. I am so grateful that you are walking in front of me. I humbly watch your graceful lead.

  2. Moving forward...it's a good thing:) Wishing you lots of joy, Sandy!

  3. Good for you Sand!!! You are so brave and strong! BTW you look like Donna Downey! You're so pretty!!!!


  4. Sandy,
    Has it been two years? Wow. I remember. You are so strong and brave! You know that, don't you? We are here!
    xo, Cheryl

  5. Sandy, welcome to a new beginning this 2012. I can't believe it's been two years. I thought you were just getting out of the first year.

    As for me, it's been three years last November, since Ernie went home to heaven. Knowing he's there, and someday I will see him again... that really helps bring a closure to my grieving time.

    In a sense we never really stop grieving, but the intensity of the grief lessens over time. And I am amazed at the strength that comes from God. I didn't think I could cope with the deep loss and pain, but guess what... I did! And you did, too!

    Have a year of fulfillment ahead of you.

    Much love

  6. You have come through so much and you remain just as sweet as my first visit over here. Love seeing your pretty face. Besides the flu bug I hope 2012 has held good things for you so far! xo ~Lili
