Its so difficult going into a new year. Appreciate having an alternative word to happy.
Hope for the new year
I was thinking the exact same myself, I really can’t use Happy because selfishly I’m not!
I like that - hope for the new year to all on here.
Thinking of you all I like that hope for new year I don’t use happy because it will never be will it x
Hi Viv, that is such a poignant , the first footing, I totally understand that. Sending best wishes to you
Mine too. Dreadful
Awful, same here in Manchester
Thanks Jane, hope you are well.
I am just about coping . Hope you are ok too
I keep telling myself: 'It’s just another day", trying not to look at the new calender that I found so difficult to put up.
Me too it’s like torture
The grief keeps coming in waves and still cannot believe it
This forum helps let off steam share feelings etc
Hi I’m so sorry for your loss it’s so very hard to carry on without your love one beside you I lost my husband to be 18 months ago and 10 weeks after his passing we were due to marry , it’s so hard but we must try keep positive he was only 55 it was so sudden I still can’t believe it’s happened , try take care Yvonne
@Poppy1990 that’s so sad that you didn’t get to marry your beloved. I do count my blessings that I was married to my love for almost 29 years. It was less than three weeks until our anniversary when he died. I found my card from him, already signed, in his bedside cabinet when I sorted through it.
Sending love. xxx
Finding your anniversary card after his death must have been bitter sweet. Bet you will treasure it for ever i found all jims cards the other day when looking through a box seeing his handwriting really upset me .
Yes, @Misprint , mixed emotions. There was also my birthday card which was 11 days later plus enough birthday and Christmas cards for several years. I haven’t had the courage to re-read the letters yet.
Hi Rusty, like you l wanted to get over Christmas & new year. I hope you have a peaceful new year.
Hope you have a easier new year x
Thanks @Poppy1990, I hope so too.
