Your article spoke to me, as I have a new title as of this week.

I am now a WIDOW. Suddenly a WIDOW. Unexpectedly a WIDOW. I, too, had a list of things to do, but because of work most was left begging. We all work too much in the U.S. And at the end of the day or the end of your life, nothing is really important. Time with family is the most precious, not money. Working for material things gets you nothing. I still have my list, but now I have no one to do these things with. My husband thought he would live forever and that we had plenty of time to live our life. He put off many things for another day and let work crowd out our family time. I’m sure he thought I was always complaining about him working too much. Well, now he won’t hear me say anything else. There are no words to express the grief and the pain. Everyone handles these feelings in their own way. To everyone reading this, I say prepare yourself because the clock is ticking, even if you don’t hear it. Ask yourself what is really important. Put down your devices and look at each other and talk to the ones you love, because believe it or not, your devices will not hug you or kiss you. They won’t love you back, but they will steal precious time away from you. Think about it. Every moment the clock ticks, we all get closer to death.


I have many interests and I love writing about them. Dogs,food,lifestyle.. I could go on and on, but I won’t. I’ll write articles instead!
