Things have been kinda the same yet very different this year without my honey Roy at our family's Christmas gathering. My Christmas blog post has always been my favorite to write each year. This year many tears flowed while writing this post, and lots of missing Roy has made this a very different kind of… Continue reading 12.26.20 A different kind of Christmas without Roy
I have been spending some time going through Roy's computer files, all 100,000 of them! I really don't know what I will do with all of them. That's a project for a whole week maybe next year. By: Roy Chauvin, I don’t normally post my personal experiences or feelings on Facebook but today is an… Continue reading 12.16.20 Roy’s Facebook post when we left in 2013
My little buddy, who we kinda think is taking to the new name Buddy, is such a good dog. He's very curious about this new home and follows me everywhere. I'm allowing him to roam through the property more each day and I think he likes it here! He's really wonderful and such a comfort… Continue reading 12.12.20 Buddy, Grief, Brain, Christmas Tree, and more
Some days I go through the day happy and full of the joy God has placed in my heart. Some days I am sad at just the sight of a picture of my honey Roy or the memory from one of our adventures. I found his little BabyBell red wrapped cheeses in the bottom of… Continue reading 11.23.20 Some days I …
I believe in being positive and encouraging to others and try to apply that same philosophy to my own life. I try to find the bright spot in a situation no matter how bad or sad the situation may be. Even though I don't like thinking like this, 2020 feels like the worse year ever.… Continue reading 11.18.20 Some thoughts this Wednesday morning
I am here asking for prayers today. I am about as low as I've been since Roy died. My doctor has increased my anti-depressant medicine yet I can't seem to stop crying. I know it's grief but it stinks. God just sent me some wonderful help by having me punch in the wrong numbers on… Continue reading 11.06.20 Asking for prayers
We are almost into November. Time is passing fast sometimes and sometimes it is passing slow. Here are some crazy things that have happened lately, mostly in the kitchen. First, Chip and I are not familiar with our fryer. Roy always did the frying and I never paid attention to how he drained the oil.… Continue reading 10.30.20 The crazy world at my house lately
I am in a punching mood.... Oh my goodness. I never in my life would have thought that losing my husband that I loved dearly would be this tough. I am a strong woman and keeping it together around other people is doable for me. But when I am alone my heart hurts so much… Continue reading 10.27.20 I am in a punching mood…..
Sometime recently I mentioned something about Roy's tiny harmonica but I didn't share a photo. This is it and yes he could actually play music on it! I am trying to make an effort to get out and do things that put happiness back into my life. It's been a year since I've had a… Continue reading 10.08.20 I’m trying but this being a widow stinks…..
So much has changed since Roy passed away. I'm not sure how clearly written all of this post is. Losing a spouse for me is like losing a leg. Please love your spouse with all your heart, do right by them and thank God for them every day. One day they will not be there.… Continue reading 10.01.20 So much has changed
