Widows Stories: You're Pretty Fantastic Yourself!

On Wednesdays we share stories of widows, a different one each week.

They might be from the Bible, from history, from the news headlines or maybe even from you! Your “ordinary” story will be told here to others who will understand how “extraordinary” it truly is. This week I thought it'd be fun to try something different. I'd like to hear about you!
Do you get to talk about your husband very much? Is there something about him you want the world to know?

Well, here's your opportunity!

Tell what attracted you to him, where you went on your first date, how he proposed, what you miss most, what drove you crazy, what was his favorite thing about you . . . . Just about anything goes!
I can't wait to hear from you! Just click the Comment below and fill in the box or email me at

  1. My Husband Matt has been gone 5 months. I miss him every second of everyday. He was not only my husband but My bestfriend and soulmate. We were such a great team. We have 3 beautiful children Alex 5, Annie 3, Lauren 20 months. We were building our new home and just starting our lives. We were married for 7 1/2 years together for 15. We met in high school. We became closer friends after high school and that turned into a wonderful relationship. We got engaged in Martha's Vineyard. I had tried to surprise him with the trip but he surprised me with a ring. We had a beautiful wedding couldn't have asked for anything more. Our Anniversary is coming up and I am anxious about it. I just miss him so much I miss everything about him his hugs, his smell, he could always make me smile and if I was having a bad day he could always make it better. Now I am just sad all the time and so lonely. I thank God for our kids they are getting me through this. Thank you for letting me post on here.

  2. Leanne, I love hearing about Matt and you. I'm so sorry for your loss and I'm sure all who read this will be praying for you. Please let us know when your anniversary will be so we can face that day together. Feel free to email me if you ever need to talk to someone, and if you're on Facebook go ahead and friend me and we'll walk through this together. Hugs to you, dear one. You're precious to God, may He hold you close.
