Anniversaries are extremely important times of celebration and recognition in a relationship. Use the following anniversary messages to help inspire you to come up with your own words.
It seems like a lifetime ago. Life was so different back then. We were not yet affected by mental health challenges or addiction. Parenthood was a distance dream and a foreign concept.
We were in love and happy. Fast forward 11 years to September 10th, I am widow, with 3 kids, 2 of whom are living and one is dead. They say the first year of widowhood is the hardest. I will say this. Living a bajillion firsts without your husband is hard as fuck.
Year 1 is filled with these firsts. They are lurking behind every corner and are in every little thing you do. Soon that little sliver of soap will disappear. And another tangible thing he used will be gone.
Birthdays, holidays, wedding anniversaries, the anniversary of his death.
I beg of you. Living everyday without our person makes us sad. Her person is gone, and these major milestones can ratchet the widow loneliness up to an unbearable level. He died on August 7th and our wedding anniversary was just over a month away.
What do you want to do? Through some grade A party planning, list making and people wrangling, we settled on the following plan. My kids would have a sleepover at my parents, I would visit Kevin at the cemetery in the day and then my friends and I would spend a few hours at a spa, drinking champagne and getting our nails and hair done.
After that, we would head back to one friends house for dinner, more drinking and most certainly laughing, swearing and crying. Things change fast when grieving. As I walked from the subway to the spa, the street was alive with people out and about, enjoying life on a warm Saturday evening.
My eyes starting filling with tears widows get good at public crying! A fucking bachelorette party. Complete with pink leis on the whole gang, a veil on the bride to be, and a variety of penis shaped accessories. A fucking hard widow punch to the face. I was up close and personal with a young, sweet, slightly drunk bride to be, with so much happiness around her.
And I was old, sad and had recently buried my year-old husband. She had no idea how lucky she was and she had no idea I was behind her, let alone that I was on my way to celebrate my wedding anniversary to my dead husband with my 8 best girl friends.
When I arrived, I must have looked rattled and I think I mumbled something about brides and penises and sadness so a glass of champagne rapidly found its way into my hands. As did a second. She asked me if we were part of a bachelorette party.
I just dropped the widow card. I just want to sit here and get my pedicure. The night ended back at one girlfriends house. Then we cried some more. My friends showed up for me on this first shitty milestone of my widowhood. Just like everything in this journey, my 11th wedding anniversary was nothing like I had imagined it would be.
But it WAS a day filled with love. Both in my memories of Kevin and our love story, but also in the moments spent with my friends, surrounded by their love.wedding cards on the big day, excellent to write notes to your husband To My Groom on Our Wedding Day Card for Husband, Handmade White Card Stamped with Gold Foil - Calligraphy Design - Choose Envelope Color you care with this anniversary card featuring an intricate laser-cut SET OF 2 Wedding Day Cards for Bride and Groom - White.
