I know how big our widowed community is.
I also know how many more don’t have someone to reach out to or choose not to.
I know how many people are alone…
But it still makes me sad to see my blog stats spike in views around Christmas. Because I know that there’s that many more people who are lonely and missing their other half and don’t know how the future without them is going to look.
For those of you just finding my blog:
You are not alone. You are welcome to contact me (sunnyjaneis at gmail dot com) if you need someone to talk to or listen or to just be on the other end of the phone with.

Christmas without the person you were supposed to spend your life with is lonely and sad and overwhelming. But you are not alone.
Reach out. I have made some amazing friends because I did.
Love you all. Have a Christmas… it may not be happy, it may not be merry, but it exists… and you’ll make it through. I promise. Just keep going… it does get different. Not necessarily better, but different and easier.

Life is beautiful. Just wait for it… it may not be today… but it will be…
