One year ago, life threw one of my best friends a curve. Her husband died unexpectedly! They were married for 8 short months. He was good to her and her children. She loved him very much and he loved her. I never had the chance to meet him but knew him through her. His death was hard on her but she was surrounded by family and friends who loved her and helped her through this traumatic time. Life had to go on. The world doesn’t just stop because your world comes crashing down. She picked herself up, dusted herself off and picked her children up. She will forever be impacted by this tragedy. I think however, Erich would have wanted her to be happy, to not sit around and mourn the loss of him, but to move on and find another that would treat her and her children as well as he had. He knows she deserves the best and deserves to be happy.
She slowly moved on, does that mean she loves Erich any less? No, she still loves him. She is honoring him by doing what he wanted her to do “I want you to live”….. song by George Canyon …
I want you to live, I want you to love
I want you to go on and not give up
I want you to live, I want you to try
I want you to know that I’m alright
I want you to fall in love again
I wanna see you smile again and again
I want you to live
^^^ THAT is what Erich would have wanted. No one has the right to judge her because she is living, it doesn’t mean she loves him any less. She deserves to be happy! She has found someone who treats her and her children the way Erich would have wanted them to be treated and that is amazing and wonderful.
