Though sorrow and grief for my husband of 63 years remains, peace and hope shine through. My "Ever Hope" bracelet is a constant reminder that "weeping may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning."
Sometimes when grief is super heavy, you have to know that it’s just a choice, it’s a plan B. So you’re not waiting for the feeling. I think often times when we talk about hope, we think it’s a feeling, like that you wake up feeling this way- but your hope needs to be based on: “this today didn’t work, and here’s my plan B.”
For me, the biggest thing is that things can get better. Back in December 2015, I started hurting in my left hip. I started getting nervous when not only did I have pain, but I didn’t have energy anymore
