Today is International Widow’s Day.

Today we honor all the men and women whose life partner has died too soon – the men and women working to rebuild their lives after the death.

Widows and Widowers are amazing people and accomplish amazing things.

If you are a widow – reflect today on the many remarkable things you have accomplished – no accomplishment is too small.

If you know a widow – remind them of how wonderful they are. Remind them of how they have faced every challenge with courage and strength. Some days it can feel like we aren’t managing. It can feel like we are just working to keep our heads above water.

I ask you to seek out anyone you know who is widowed and remind them that they ARE doing it, they ARE coping, and they ARE living. That they are amazing!

It is incredible how a little encouragement can go a long way.
