My Darling , My Love

Sadly and a little earlier than we expected , I lost My Darling. I loved him with all my heart. Every part of it.
He was the love of my life .  My Darling , My Sweetheart and I will miss him for the rest of my life . . . . 

A few weeks ago as we enjoyed an evening together, the realization hit me hard- we were slowly losing ground and as we struggled to think of the future, I made a conscious decision to try and be truly thankful in the midst of it all.

Thankful for all the moments we had enjoyed over the last several years together. Moments that will stay in my heart and mind forever. 

The following is what I wrote that night- not knowing that I would have to learn to live without My Darling this soon. I hope as you read it, you will think about the many, many ways to show your sweetheart just how much you
love him today. And not waste one minute . . . . 

December 9, 2012

Tonight Dear Jesus, as I listen to the wind howl and My Darling laying here 
next to me, I am reminded that as much as I love him  
( With all my heart )

that YOU love us MORE.

What an awesome thought as I listen to him breath, sleeping peacefully-
that YOU are watching, and LISTENING just as intently as I am .

 As I struggle to make wonderful memories with him, laughing, watching him 
want to have strength again, wanting to do the things he did before, wanting so 
much to be involved with projects. . . YOU have promised a new life for him.

I will trust YOU Lord. 

 I will love YOU Lord.

And, I will see My Darling again. 

At that time, I will also see the ONE who makes it possible to have hope, continue 
to trust, love completely, forgive freely, and give to us the very breath of LIFE 

Thank you Lord for this time with him. Thank you Lord that you gave me the 
opportunity to know him, to love him with my entire heart, and to know in return

the depth of his love for me.

For it is only through your love, that we may love completely.

I will take a little more time off , rest up and learn to have a very different 

Till next time-




  1. I'm so sorry for your loss....I will be praying for you... I wish I was there to give you a hug!

  2. Thank you ! He was a wonderful man & I'm missing him terribly. I know in time I will be fine again. We have LOTS and LOTs of
    loving memories to warm our hearts. I try to keep in mind a happy, healthy man who is completely free of cancer- And to remember
    that he is having W-A-Y more fun than we are :) God is taking great care of him now.


  3. Hi Diana!!1

    I'm so sorry for your loss. He sounds like a great guy. Losing ones mate is always very hard. A person that was so in tune with you, your best friend who you thought would never leave you and when that time came, you realized just how much he was a part of you and you were a part of him.

    I'm so happy that we have the promise of the resurrection...And we know God doesn't lie, so, this promise gives us comfort during a loved ones sickness and death. You looked after him and that shows the depth of your love for him. I'm so glad that you were able to do that.

    Take care,

    1. Your so correct- we had what so many marriages long for- and it just was such a sweet time with him. I was honored
      to care for the man that I shared my life with. All the joys, all the sorrows, and everything in between !

      Thanks so much for the comment. I cannot believe it's been one month already. Day by Day- it gets more final...
      so greatful that I have the promise of seeing him again one day. Then we will catch up and share stories like we
      did so many evenings here .


  4. Can I just say what a relief to find a person that actually understands what they're discussing on the net. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren't more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
