Eric hates this photo. We took it at his 20-year class reunion in the photo booth. I love it. I think it’s adorable of him. His fun silly side that not everyone got to see. We left that class reunion with me saying, “they really love you.” And him saying, “yeah they do!” And then I followed up with “but they love me more.” And he said “I think you’re right.” And we laughed and laughed and laughed. I was razzing Eric. He had become the head football coach of the high school they all graduated from. He was like a celebrity in the room. And I was telling all his secrets. He loved it though. Don’t let him fool ya. 😉😂 Good times.

I am generally an extrovert, I enjoy making conversation, especially of the deep and thoughtful kind. I have never really had a hard time meeting new people, it’s one of my “superpowers”. But not surprisingly, after my husband died, that changed a bit. Showing up at parties full of people that knew us was full of landmines. From thoughts of “he should be here” to worries like “are they judging me for smiling and looking happy right now?”. Showing up at parties full of new people, especially new couples, has often meant my thoughts veered to “everyone is noticing that I’m the only single person here” or “I wonder if the host told them I’m a widow?”. Especially in the first year before I took my wedding ring off, I inevitably had to answer the “why isn’t your husband here at this party”.⠀ ⠀ I used to feel bad when I brought up his name, told people I’m a widow or referenced him in a story. I DON’T feel bad anymore. He is an important part of who I am and I’m done putting other people’s comfort over my own natural and authentic response to recall those moments in my life where I was privileged to have him be a part of my story.⠀ ⠀ Are you comfortable sharing memories of your loved ones in social situations? What strategies do you have when showing up for these types of social situations? Please share below👇🏼

Becoming a widow is devastating but know that there is a future that holds happiness waiting for you. * After the shock, sadness, grief and loneliness... you will heal. Your dearly departed will live on forever in your heart and you will find your way through the process. * Your healing journey is a long one but when you do allow yourself to finally heal.... it is so worth it. * There are so many wonderful adventures waiting for you... ones filled with family, love and happiness. Keep a positive attitude to see what’s possible. * I am so grateful for finding my way through the healing journey. I am now a grandmother and love every second of it. There’s so much to be grateful for. Stay strong and allow yourself to experience the beauty of life. With love and positivity, Barbara💖✨✨✨ *** * * #widowcoach #griefcoach #griefandloss #feeltheemotions #loveyourselftoday #widow #movingforwardaftergrief #healingprocess #createthelifeyouwant #thenewnormal #widowlife #beanovercomer #grievingoutloud #yourlifematters #positiveoutlook #livinglifemyway #momhustle #widowhood #widowsofinstagram #inspirechange #healing #makeithappen #griefwarrior #showupforyourself #yesican #widowsisterhood #pushingforward #strongmoms #widowmom #positivityiskey

Really is a really bad day. I’m struggling beyond belief and it’s days like this where a good hug from your mum would be a welcome tonic. But, oh, mum’s dead too. Yes I’m flippant. And a pretty unlikable person today. No one to talk to, dogs can only be a person substitute for so long. So ranting on insta. #socialmedianotsofuckingsocial #sorrynotsorry #anger #grief #widow #missmyhusband #missmymum

They’re always with you and on your mind. . I think of Dan several times a day, the things that I do, the decision I make, even when I just need someone to talk to. . I was and still am always amazed when people ask if I would have done something different (not been with Dan) if I knew I would be a widow in my 30s. NEVER. I know our time was too short. But we were together for 16 years, and he was healthy over half of that time. I wouldn’t change out good, or bad days if it meant I never have had any of them. Our time together made me who I am. While I do wonder what life would be like now if he was still here, I never want to imagine what my life would be had we never met. . He will forever be in my heart and on my mind ❤️💕

QUOTE OF THE DAY . . "Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthing, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." ~Winston Churchill

mayowaadegbile. Sometimes when I tell people I work with widows, they don't understand

Sometimes when I tell people I work with widows, they don't understand that those women experience all form of abuse after the demise of their spouse. They face sexual, psychological, financial, ?? Can you imagine losing ones spouse most time suddenly? Even for a financially stable woman, a loss is a loss. Imagine having money today and everything is taken away by people who didn't know how the money was made. The sweat. Sacrifice... Pain. Tears and suddenly, all is just gone. So when people say they don't fund stuff that involves widows, I smile because we don't know the effect on the children even beyond the mothers. Imagine a child losing the father and the remaining parent is made to go through trauma or does not have a good support system? Yesterday my team went to facilitate a training session and the reviews based on the stories from other widows humbled them. We have struggled because every time we write widows in any grant application, funders immediately yank the application off. They don't feel that it's a very important field. For every man that dies, a woman becomes a Widow and the trauma is beyond the sorry you will tell her. We need policies that protect widows in Nigeria. We need funders to know that some widows experience sexual abuse, maltreatment and are made to go through some rites that are criminal in nature. Don't keep silent like you don't care, remember that aunty, mother, sister or sibling that lost her spouse... Remember the pain she went through... The facts are staggering and it's not reducing. If you have the opportunity to support a widows organization, remember that a lot of us are struggling to raise funds and we are the voice to the voiceless. We want to support more widows... but to give up!! (I really want to).

It’s nice having the ‘whole’ family home together for a few months, now that Jay has finished his first year of Uni. Yesterday we took photos for our Christmas card (it’s not this one) and the boys had to listen to me moan about the crap weather and how their clothes all clashed (but teenagers don’t care about that, so in the end we just went with what they wanted to wear because it shows their personalities). Thanks @eringrac33 for being our photographer, especially when it’s crazy windy. You did a good job to snap the pic while our hair wasn’t blowing like crazy! #singlemum #lifewithboys #grief #death #anxiety #depression #hydranencephaly #widow

I used to like time alone, I still do at times. Loneliness is a whole new fucking unwelcome ball game. Just can’t get moving today, looks like another amazing day of wallowing in tears and self fucking pity. Think the anger is bubbling up again. Oh joy. There’s a very fine line to just holding and allowing grief to just be awful, unleashed grief ..... or keeping busy, get up and get moving and pushing it aside, hoping you’ll ‘get over it, ‘heal’. Well it’s not easy and sure as hell isn’t a straight line through time. Hiding from grief, running away from it.... it’ll raise its head and bite harder. Like I said, fine line... just never know what side I’m on. I seriously wouldn’t wish this on anyone. It’s a living nightmare. #lonelinessisshit #grief #widow #wishhewastillhere
