Is life tough?
Sure, sometimes it’s overwhelmingly so! Losing the love of my life (Walter), was more than overwhelming.
How could it be?
How could the person with whom I was supposed to grow old be gone? How to begin to live without him?
“Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts. And once the pain subsides, the gifts remain. These gifts are life's true treasures, bought at great price, but cannot be acquired in any other way.” ~ Steve Goodier
Looking back now, I know he had to leave so I could become strong. There was no remedy for my love lost but to love more.
Grow. Learn. Shape. Become. Love more.
Truly, in love,
Dr Chris Baker
