    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    A week today will be the five year anniversary of my husband's last birthday, and exactly two weeks later the five year anniversary of his fatal heart attack. Like you, I miss my Dan, every single day.

           I wish you peace and love.

             Love and Hugs,
                Heather

      I can tell that it seems only yesterday since the dates of his birthday and his death are right there in the front of your mind.

      Please take my wish for peace and love into your heart and know that it was worth it.  He was worth it.

        Thank you so much.

        Yes, the anniversaries seem especially significant this year. Five years seems like a turning point. I've been getting whispers so loud they are foghorns that I am being called forward to even more of a new life than for the last five years. I'm just keeping myself open for those whispers and praying I hear them.

        Oh he was abundantly worth it, more than I ever dreamed of. It was and remains an enormous privilege to have his love and to love him. Some of those whispers have wondered if there is somewhere a new partner, a new love ... Dan will always have a huge place in my heart.

        I can feel your wish for my peace and your love right here in my heart. Bless you.

                     Love and Hugs,
                        Heather

          I read somewhere that 5 years is about the average time it takes to finish mourning the loss of a marriage or loved one and move on (depending on how much mourning occurred before the divorce or death, of course).

          It is time for those green shoots to start coming out and blossoming and this is a great lush springtime in our world.  Go for it!

            That is what it feels like, an ending and a new beginning. my life has changed a lot over the last five years, of course, and now it feels like time to take a big step into the unknown.

                        Thanks for listening,
                               Hugs,
