Email of the Day: You Could Love Us Both

I was unexpectedly widowed twenty-seven years ago. I was forty years old and had been the caregiver for my husband whose illness was never supposed to be life threatening. When I met my now second husband four months later, I asked him to be my friend. He was, with all the patience a girl could ask for.



When my wedding anniversary came into play many months later, I didn’t know how to show my emotions in front of my friend. He said two things that told me the character of the man I have now been married to for fourteen glorious years. He told me β€œYour first husband was an incredible man. He had to be for you to love him so deeply.” He then went on to say, β€œIt’s okay, Lillian, you can love us both.” I still tear up as I remember that day.


My husband is my hero, and I am his girlfriend all day long.
