The Widowed Life by Artist, NORA KASTEN



"This music is a Blessing to me and I'm glad to share it with you. 
 In two weeks it will be two years since my dearly Beloved Karl died.  I thought the agony of grief would be behind me by now but  . . . . . WRONG.   He's always close to the surface of my thoughts but most days I am at peace.  Maybe the coming anniversary of his death is bringing on the waves of horrible  grief anew but I thought that I would be stronger now.  Someone said to me a while back "Nora, take time to enjoy your sadness".  What does that mean?  I have fought it for so long.  Can it be true that this grief for Karl, after all, is just "prolonged self pity".

Thank you for sharing your song and your feelings, Nora. In reality it has only been a short time since Karl "passed on" to his new life. My hope for you is that you can someday see it just for that; he has gone into a new life and is spreading his joy there where it is needed now. You were a wonderful gift to Karl and he to you. Cherish that gift, but release it into God's hands to "pass on" to someone else in need. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Gilberto, What at surprise to hear from you and please know how thankful that I am for you. I went to your blog and see that it has been over a year ago since you posted. I commented on that blog and was concerned about you then as I am now. Please be well, my friend . . . Nora

What a wonderful life you and Karl must have had together. You are so lucky to have found that kind of love. My prayer for you today is that God grants you peace and serenity--and that you find real joy again. You are as always a lovely, talented lady.

I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any interesting
article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough for me.
In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made

good content as you probably did, the net shall be a lot more useful than ever
before.
