Sandi, it's the start of a new adventure.  And you know that Mike is watching and grinning.  It's hard to let go of a place that holds so many memories, but you know not all of them were good.  So it's a fresh beginning.  I hope at some point you get excited about it.  My prayers are with you.

Hugs,

Connie

Sandi,  I didn't want to leave the home where my husband died.  But thanks to his brother whom we had been renting from......he got me so mad there was no way that I was going to continue to live there.  I thought that I was doing well, but  I really didn't start living again ......until I moved.   Too many memories in our old home. 
 
Sending you lot's of positive thoughts........

Sandi,
 
I can't imagine how hard it is to find that closure when you never wanted to but you need to for you.  Your life still moves forward and Mike would be proud of you taking the step.  You'll be able to see more of a happy light after you get all settled in. 
 
Warm happy thoughts your way!

Sandi, I read your posts regarding Mike and the journey you have been on. You are such a strong person and an inspiration. I can find no words of encouragement to give you except I am happy that you are moving on with your life. I can only imagine how hard it is.

I know that I say to everyone that "You are in my thoughts and prayers", but those are not just words. I think of you all always. And pray that you all find happiness.

The new apartment sounds beautiful.

No all caretakers are inspirations... for every one that dares to post there are many many lurkers... dealing with these issues because they are afraid or too shy to come on here... I had to.. or go crazy... to do what we should do.. take care of one another that is just what we all should do... and that is what I believe God wants us to do..... and I am no less, no more than the next person who cares for a loved one... we are all in this boat together a journey... and eventually that journey ends... if we're lucky we share our boat with someone we love... and who loves us... I am one of the lucky people... that's all... Sandi

Sandi,
I too read through your story with Mike. I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you both cared for each other so much !
 
I want to thank you for your posts/advice on my thread and wish you the very best on your move. I know it must be difficult for you.
 
I always find it helpful to hang onto the glass half full theory. When bad things happen it is always easier to see/feel how the "glass is half empty" and to even dwell on it. But when you set your mind to it - seeing/feeling that that same glass it is actually half full can change your whole mindset and outlook.
 
My father ( back in March) had to have is leg amputated ( loooong story for another day ! ). Upon  completion of his surgery/amputation my siblings and I waited in the hall for Mom to go into his room and see how he was doing - mostly mentally - and to give them a little private time to deal with things. Mom was a nervous wreck ! She went in the room and hesitantly asked him how he was doing/feeling. His glass half full answer was " I'm doing good but I'm a little shorter on one side!" That answer and attitude brought Mom straight out to us with a grin from ear to ear. Dad didn't and hasn't since focused on his leg being gone - just where do I go from here !
 
Each and every one of has a predetermined plan and purpose in this life. Your's and Mike's included each other. Mine and Dave's have included each other too. Even though, at times, things have been tough, I know we are supposed to be together. After reading your story, I know it was the same for you and Mike. Although this move may be difficult, I think that it is what you are supposed to do.
 
I was going to say that this a new beginning for you, but that is wrong. It is a new chapter in your journey- the glass if half full !
 
You are dehydrated - drink it up !

Sometimes when we say these things outside of ourselves ... just in the doin that ... it helps and this did... because I work in the mental health field.. it's hard for me to accept when I need a little boost... and I deal with very difficult psychiatric patients everyday.. but God gives me the strength ... and has through out this time... and I am feelin better.. much better for some reason... probably that toga I put on and the hummmmmmmin... smilewinkgrin   Sandi
