I don't want to rant really. I just don't know what to do or say anymore. My oldest daughter's father died when she was five and her sister was 19 month old with cerebral palsy. Four years later, my first husband died in a car accident where he and our 20 month old son died. Only our 34 month old survived that accident. Three years later, I remarried and we have a beautiful lil guy. Well, his dad died in August 2012. I have been told that I am very strong. I disagree. I cry at the drop of a dime. I sometimes feel like there is no purpose to life, but then I look at my five surviving children and wonder what they would do without me. Widowed moms, to you I say, yes it is hard but each time you feel like giving in look at his or her or their little faces. It will get you through the next five minutes. And the next, and the next.
