I was a very young bride and young mother. In my life, I have known some remarkable Widows!
3 Widows In My Lifetime
Widow From Church
My Paternal Grandmother
Widow From Church
Each of the 3 Widows In My Lifetime was a remarkable woman. Each has left lasting lessons and memories. First Widow was not related by blood. She was a dear church family member and woman that each of us women admired. Before she became a widow, she started a church in Belarus. She got involved with several missionary events. After her spouse passed away, she began to live life as a widow and she traveled to see the church she started in Belarus. She enjoys traveling and she enjoys a life lead by God.
Lesson learned: let God lead the way and life will not change unless you help change it.
My Paternal Grandmother:
My paternal grandmother is the second remarkable Widow. As an adult, I learned and watched closely. She laid her own father to rest when I was a young bride. Then laid her husband to rest a few years later. Grandma did not drive, but she enjoyed life. Everyone took her out to eat and shop as often as possible. We would show up at her door and be greeted with the smile of a 4’9″ tall woman. The bowl of candy on the table was filled with hard candies and chocolates. Tea time with my grandmother was always full of wisdom. Before my grandmother passed away seven years ago, she laid to rest another man. My father was the first child that she said goodbye to in her lifetime.
Lesson learned: God takes home many people before you sometimes, keep your faith and never take life for granted.
Followers are sitting there with their coffee, knowing that the third widow is my mother. She had been a widow for 14 years Before Her Journey Is Complete Although she was disabled, she was an intelligent woman. Enjoyed life, and although she did not drive either we took her out to eat, shop and enjoy the sunshine as often as three grateful children could be for her extra 39 years of life with her.
Lifetime lesson learned here is that whatever trials God brings into your life, your faith and survival skills will get you through each day.
Caregiver Watches Over:
As I sip my chamomile tea, leaning back in this desk chair, I watch my spouse, struggle with breathing issues and sleep issues. I begin to daydream about my future while asking the following questions:
Which Adventures will I endure?
What sorts of people will cross my path?
Will I stay in Missouri or begin a brand new life somewhere else?
When God decides on the day to take my spouse home, he will then have both of my parents and my spouse of 35 years. Stay tuned for new seasons of adventure.
