Thank you for your encouragement Carla. I went to see a movie this weekend with a girlfriend. Haha. I have so many close friends whose spouses have left them and a couple friends whose husbands died. So, there is no excuse for me to go alone to see a movie. Too many of my friends would love to have a movie companion!

I know you are right that things will not always be so hard. I am doing so much better now than I was even a month ago. God is good. Like most people, I have gone through various "tough" times over the course of my entire life that prepared me well for the pain of losing my husband. I still love him very much and I always will love him, but I am not a "desperate" type of person -- I can still be happy without him in my life. Marriage to him was difficult! I do not know why God allowed me to love such a difficult man, but I assume it was to have my two great kids. Lol. Even though I love my husband, I am actually more at peace not living with him. I most definitely walked on eggshells every single day of my marriage with him. I think the stress of it was killing me and I am so much more at peace now even though I, surprisingly, miss him. A part of me wants him back but the smarter part of me knows I need to let him go. So, I am using all of my experiences to try to help other women whose husbands have walked out on them. Life is crazy!

I am ten years older than you! I think it is neat to be only 38 and already have your children out on their own. That is neat b/c you can have a fun "second" life practically.

I hope to spend some time this evening checking out your blog some more. It is good to get to know you!

Take care!

Haha - Talking about learning how to live alone, sometimes I go to movies alone. I am a night owl and very few of my friends are. I went to see The American tonight and I was the only person in the entire theater! And, the time before tonight when I went alone to see a movie, a man literally followed me to the gas station and the grocery store. He followed me all over the store and to the checkout and to my car. It was very embarrassing. Thankfully he did not follow me home. I think I will just have to go to the early movies with my friends from now on. I had gone to dinner tonight with a group of friends and I just didn't feel like going back home to an empty house right away. Luckily, I do not mind being alone but being alone constantly is different. I am currently going through an unexpected and unwanted divorce. So, I am definitely putting my coping skills to work and learning a whole lot of new ones! I will definitely keep a watch on your blog to see how you are doing.

Hi there and welcome from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. Don't be too overwhelmed by MBC. The ladies are awesome here and sooo embracing. Hope you enjoy your stay :)
