Filling in the blanks

There are a lot of blank spaces that I need to fill in. Some are easy some not so much. Some I can fill in alone, others require asking advice but there's no one here to ask any more.

I used to have just one hook on this rack and Wade spread his stuff out over the other four. Now my things hang alone filling blank spaces.


  1. Ann, Please know that you have so many friends in blogland that love and care for you. Praying for you and sending a hug.

  2. Yeah, that's gonna happen a lot. So many adjustments, from two to one. I go through that when my husband is away for just a few days...We live so much of our lives on auto - and assuming - and strikes home, just one now. One step at a time, babe, one day at a time. ♥️

  3. I have no Shakespearean words to offer....just my love and prayers. I truly wish for you to find that middle ground. I hear that you can see clearly from there....
    Love and hugs to you sweet friend...♥️

  4. one hook at a time, one day at a time... love you and you did good with taking 4 hooks. are your keys in the purse? if not the last hook is calling for keys... prayers and hugs and lots of love coming your way

  5. Dear Ann ~ that void that our dear husbands left in our lives, is a hard thing to get used to. Even now after 5 1/2 years it is still there for me, but, the good news is that it's not as terrifying, or seems so large. We adjust, filling the spaces with 'good' things, keeping old memories locked in our hearts, and making new ones. It seems amazing to me how we can adapt to our new situation, but we can.

    God is my strength. Each day is a gift.

    Don't make any major decisions for at least a year is the advice to widows.

    Making changes is hard at first. We did so much with our husband's input.

    It may be hard to ask for help also, it is for me, but others are so willing to help, they just need to know how and in what ways you need it.

    Just take things as they come and look for the good and beautiful in each new day.

    Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

  6. FlowerLady gives excellent advice. Just know that there are some really good people out here to help bounce stuff off of. Grace is a good one for seeing things clearly from very far away. I have turned to her many times seeking advice and she offers keen insight. Lean on others. They want to help.

  7. The Flowerlady is spot on about not making any large decision for a year. I've heard that before and I know it's true.

    Know that you have tons of friends that love you, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  8. Looks all good spread out and Wade is probably smiling about that now.Take care. Remember one step at a time.

  9. There'll be a lot of blanks filled in as you create your life in these new circumstances. Glad that one of those hooks is for Gibbs. :)

  10. You will figure it out. You don't have to do it all at once.

  11. Some very good advice here Ann! I think you did great with these hooks...and even Gibbs gets one! I had breakfast the other day with my friend who lost her husband one year ago. She is still figuring things out. She had to move into an apt because she couldn’t handle the upkeep on the home she had. It was costing her $200 a month just to have her grass cut. She still takes it one day at a time. Hugs to you!

  12. Aww this makes me sad! I had similar feelings when I cleaned up all of Moon's stuff. I had lots of space to fill. You don't realize how much room a cat's stuff takes up. I'd give up the space to have him back in a heartbeat. HUGS
