I have a purpose and many things to be grateful for today. I have enjoyable moments, and at the same time, my sense of security - my feeling of being safe and protected is missing.

Janice, I'm still part of a (longtime) couple but I often wonder... how will I cope if Sam is no longer at my side?? Thank you so much for sharing this and for so lightly touching on the pain you must be feeling. I can read that between your graceful words. Just a guess, but the fact that you're writing about this probably means you are on the road to figuring things out... to be continued with [B]OLD WOMEN. xx

This is such a thought provoking read. The security issue is huge. I felt it in this piece. How to prepare is another story. I commend your taking one step at a time to walk through the uncertainty. You are doing a wonderful job from what I've read in your sharing. Thank you for writing through your process.
