This sight helps me so much. Since I lost my best friend and love two years ago, this site has given me comfort and courage. Pray for each other and share.

Kitty, Danita, Julie and Nancy – God knit you together for such a time as this. I love you so very much.
“God Shows Up”
From Yaffa on March 17, 2013
Hi, Ladies! I am a widow of five years today…and found you by typing “widows” into the FB search bar.
Soooooooooooo happy to have found you all…my motto has been, in the last five years, “GOD SHOWS UP.” He has been my strength and my shield…and I am so grateful.
“A Place to Come for Encouragement”
From Sharon on Feb 13, 2013
I love this page……its wonderful seeing post and inspiration from others who have travelled this road. All of my friends are married and with families and as they try to understand, sometimes they just cant. As a 53 year old with grown kids, I just do not feel I fit in anywhere but God has been so good to me and I know I have come such a long way in the past year. Life is about hope and living in joy. Its just those lonely times at home at night or when we desire someone sitting there with us to talk, go to a movie or just someone to share dinner with that gets tough. We all can do this, one step at a time but it helps having a place to come to for encouragement.

I am so glad that a friend shared this FB page. After 18 years of marriage, I unexpectedly lost my husband, best friend and father to my daughter on November 18, 2012 and feel that the dreams we had planned have been shattered. I have been asking the “why” questions, still can’t believe this is really happening and hoping that I will wake up from this terrible nightmare. Because his death was sudden, I am now going through feelings of guilt, and asking myself, did you know that I loved you and I am so sorry for the times we argued and trying to figure out what I could do to change and make things better. The comfort in the midst of the emotional turmoil is that God has surrounded me with an amazing support network of family and friends, who are walking alongside of me during this hurt and healing process. I am also thankful for this page, where I can read experiences and stories of other women who are and have been in the same shoes. God Bless you all and have a wonderful evening!

Glad I found this site. Dafydd, my wonderful husband died Friday August 31st 2012. We had been married 34 years. He was my dearest most faithful loyal friend as well as my husband. I miss him more than any words could possibly express and I am lonely without him. I miss his wisdom, his humour, his kiss, his voice, his company. I feel as if I will never feel happy ever again. My only light in this blackness is that he was a Christian. He had given his life to Jesus when at college years ago as I had. So I believe in eternal life and one day I will see him again but in the meantime . . . .oh the loss, the pain! Thanks for understanding and reading this. I’m sorry you others are in this terrible ‘club’ that we didnt want to join but there is a little comfort that others are in the same situation and we are supporting eachother.
Joyce on January 11, 2013
I’m so glad (my friend) introduced me to this site. I am a widow of just over 2 months, October 25, 2012. My husband of 25 years died suddenly of a heart attack. There are days I’ll say to myself, I need to tell Bill……….when he gets home from work and then it hits me he won’t be coming home. I keep busy with lots of volunteer work and do lots of praying. A REALLY difficult time is coming for me. My husband Bill and I were elected King and Queen of our Mardi Gras Association. We were so excited. The ball is February 9th and Bill will still be honored as king but going through all the usual things without him at my side seems so unbearable. I know he would want me to continue and that’s the only reason I’m going to go through with it. Thanks for letting me rattle along and join this group. Please keep me in your prayers.

I never thought i would be looking for a page like this. But i am so glad i stumbled across it. My husband, best friend and soulmate was killed September 2, 2012 in a motorcycle accident in Aztec, New Mexico on his way home to me in Louisiana. We just had his funeral last weekend. I am so lost.

I lost my husband of 23 years on 07/23/12 and our wedding anniversary is 2 weeks away I love him and miss him so much, that some days I think I cant go on, but I force myself to for my girls, and I ask God to help me everyday, but its just so so hard.

A “Widow’s Might” is a great site for widows who are looking for HOPE. They are also now on FaceBook so you can like them here for encouragement. If you know of a widow, please direct them to these places for encouragement.—Thank You.

SO GLAD TO JOIN THIS COMMUNITY OF WIDOWS. I LOST MY 50 YR. OLD HUSBAND, CHUCK, TO MULTIPLE MYLOMA 10 YRS. AGO. SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY…. WE WERE MARRIED ALMOST 31 YRS. LOSING A SPOUSE IS LIKE HAVING AN AMPUTATION OF A LIMB. YOU EVENTUALLLY LEARN HOW TO DO THINGS WITHOUT THE LIMB, BUT YOU’LL ALWAYS MISS IT.
Rene on August 21, 2012
THE EMAILED ARTICLES HAVE BEEN SUCH SN ENCOURAGEMENT TO ME AS I JOURNEY ON THIS PATH OF WIDOWHOOD. I AM IN AWE EVERYTIME AN ARTICLE SHOWS UP ADDRESSING JUST WHAT I NEED RIGHT WHEN I NEED IT… GOD IS SO GOOD! I HAVE BEEN A WIDOW FOR TWO YEARS AFTER MY HUSBAND DIED SUDDENLY OF A HEART ATTACK AT THE AGE OF 40. I HAVE THREE CHILDREN AGES 11, 9 (ALMOST 10) AND 4. READING ABOUT THE EXPERIENCES OF THOSE OF YOU WITH CHILDREN STILL AT HOME HAS BEEN SO VERY HELPFUL! I LOOK FORWARD TO CONNECTING WITH MANY MORE OF YOU ON THIS PAGE. GOD BLESS!
