Living life without my husband was NOT my plan. Wasn’t his either.
Life often has other ideas for us. Finding our way isn’t always easy. Two things I’ve learned, there’s always a rainbow after the storm, and the rainbow is dotted with diamonds.
According to lore, at the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold. That may not be true, but there are diamonds along the path to the rainbow. Diamonds are created when intense stress, or pressure, tries to crush a coal.
Life without a husband feels crushing, however, it’s shaping us into diamonds.
As widows, (oh how I hate that word) the deaths of our husbands put us and our lives under stress. We create diamonds with that stress.
