Happy New Year! It’s officially 2016. Let’s hope it’s a good year.
As the ball drops and the fireworks pop in the air, it occurs to me that this is only the second time since 1987 that I have not spent NYE with my lovely wife Cindy. The first time was last year when she was in the hospital recovering from open heart surgery. As you have probably concluded by the subheading above, Cindy didn’t fully recover from that. She passed away on August 1.
This blog is to share my journey as a fairly new widower. It is cheap therapy for me and I hope that it will help some other folks too. I’m going to try to make this the blog I was looking for last Summer.
If you’re wondering where to start, or looking for something to read since this is the only blog post currently on the site, I strongly suggest the “Start Here” page. It will point you to some background information that may help you to understand what’s going on here.
While I plan to post on this blog regularly, I don’t know that I can promise to do so once a day, or that I will limit it to only once per day. Let’s just say that I will post whenever something moves me to do so.
Please help me out and comment on posts that you enjoy (or even the ones you hate) and share the good ones on Facebook and Twitter. Who knows? We might be helping someone else out there.
As far as the festivities of the evening go, Kevin (my son) and I are keeping it low-key. We’re just staying home and taking it easy.
I hope that 2016 is a wonderful and blessed year for you. Thanks for visiting.
