Why is Bill the Center of Your Universe?
I had convinced myself that I was not intending to find a relationship (after being widowed young); I wasn’t even looking for one. Then Bill entered my life, also widowed young w/kids, like me. We were helping other young widows grieve, heal, and move on with hope, and we fell in love w/each other and all 6 Kids & (now) 7 Grandkids+ 3 “bonus” adult kids. Bill selflessly gives to all, in 3 states-his time, listening, helping, emotional nurturing; he retired 3x so we had the funds to help w/college & support. Asking what the Kids need has been his #1 priority vs “retirement choices”. He’s been my rock through two major surgeries and a scare of cancer. In 19 yrs together I’ve only seen him get mildly, briefly upset twice, albeit numerous crisis have occurred in our large, blended family of 19. His faith, patience, humor & unconditional love is a legacy of kindness & humility that is rare. He teaches by example to “value each day; there are no guarantees, only blessings”.
