you did it once

I was talking with my youngest today about a comment my daughter-in-law made a few days ago. She told me how proud of me she was for moving forward and dating again and how she wasn't sure if she was to become a widow if she could do it. His response to this was something like, you got through it once so you know you can do it again. 

I feel deep down that I will again be a widow. I treasure the time I do have with Chris because I know it any moment it can end. But the love that we share makes whatever time we have together absolutely worth it.

Is it sometimes hard to hope that we'll make it 25 years when I didn't get that with Steve? Yes! But without hope and love, what do we have?
