Miss Your Husband?
I live in a seniors' complex and most of the women are widows. Currently, I have five of these women wanting me -- also a widow -- to visit them. And I don't want to go!
We have nothing in common except for our widowhood, so why should I waste my time?
I have my own interests that keep me interested and busy and I find the days are far too short for idle chatter. Also -- and this may horrify some folks -- I am enjoying life without the complication of a man!
All my married life I wanted to go somewhere alone and sometimes I managed it, but not without feelings of guilt afterwards. Now, though I can't get around as I used to, I like living alone, with no one to cater to -- except for my lovely cat, of course!
I daren't sign this for fear of offending someone I know because I've never met any widow who doesn't miss her husband. Is there anybody out there who feels as I do?
