February 2024

Ah, February. The month of love.


As a teller of love stories, I think It’s Important for you to know I’ve been blessed two times in my life.


I met my first husband In high school. We lived a love story that would have given us endless comfort by way of reminiscing, well into our old age. But, we didn’t have the happy ending we’d hoped for.


By way of a mixed-up conversation and a few jumbled words, we learned he had Grade IV GBM. The brain cancer gave us 8-1/2 months after diagnosis.


When he died, I thought I would too. As an empath, the depth of my grief sliced through me on a daily basis. I was drowning in my feelings and it was exhausting. What took more energy was In trying to hide my pain from those around me. I didn’t want them to feel bad.


And, then, the universe sent me a lifeboat.

All my friends knew us as a couple. When I would talk about my grief, I saw the shadow of theirs. I couldn’t handle my words being the cause of their pain. I dealt with depression and sank lower and lower until God brought me two friends.


They were the only two people I could talk to about my husband and my pain. One is a fellow writer, and the other Is now my husband.


When someone makes you laugh through your tears, you’ve found treasure. That is what he Is to me. He listened to tales of my heartbreak and love story, handed me tissues, bought me coffee, and told me the silliest jokes In the world. In time we dated. We will celebrate five years of marriage this summer. <3


Never say never, my friends. God might have other plans.

xoxo,

D.D.
