This was the time and this was the place, I needed to turn my life around or it's all down hill from here. "Take your time" a few friends have said, others just offer condolences', while my family, well, most of them really don't know what to say anymore, it's all been said I guess. It was six months ago today, that my entire life came crashing down and it seems I am just now getting my head straight, and my heart.

I was away on business, I sell books for a large publisher and I had to go out of town for three days to secure a client. After the meeting was a complete success, we all went out to dinner, I was excited to call my husband, but I thought I would wait, until I was back at the hotel, washed up and in bed. This is where the guilt sets in, the anger, the why's and the why nots.
I had just been dropped off to the hotel when my cell phone rang, it was my sister, and what she told me, made me collapse, right there in the street.
Evidently, only about four hours ago, about the time our meeting ended, there was a natural gas leak at our house and there was a huge explosion, and there were no survivors. My husband, my soul mate of 22 years and our four kids didn't make it out alive. From what my sister said, which was meant to ease the pain, the fire was hot and quick, which meant they probably didn't suffer much, if at all.
But now, I am the one left to suffer, with the pain, the guilt and the anger. But I need to be strong, to carry on, God give me strength.
