Robert and I met when I was a freshman in high school.  We married after we were done with college.  I was blessed in the respect that I had a FANTASTIC marriage.  We were happy and in love.  I was widowed in Texas on March 30, 2008.  We were driving home in separate cars and he was killed in an accident in front of me.  Both of our cars were totaled.  His in the head-on collision and mine from all of the debris that flew through the air on impact. I literally remember screaming--a carnal scream from the depths of my body and one that I would never like to hear again.   My son, who was riding in the car with me at the time of the accident, was not even a year old when Robert died.  I had never in my wildest dreams contemplated being a widow at 31 years old.  When it happened, I knew that bad things happened to "other people".  I just never imagined that it would happen to me!    I picked up and moved back home to Chicago and currently live very near my family in the western suburbs.   I am lucky that I have a fantastic support network here.   Munchkin is currently six years old and keeps me busy as we navigate this life together with laughter, prayer and grace!
