I am an older woman who, after the death of my husband, decided to write about the parts of me he knew and of those parts of me I withheld from him.
One thing I do believe is that women, strong women like myself, can overcome anything and take control of any horrible situation through sheer determination to win.
I withheld some things from my husband because I knew he didn’t have the answer. I loved him, truly loved him, but he didn’t have all the answers and so I had to look elsewhere before returning. This he did understand.
