Widow. The word conjures up so much loss and sadness. You are given that title when you lose someone you loved very much and planned a life with forever. A life you certainly never expected to change dramatically when your husband gets diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and dies eight months later.

How do you recover from that with any sort of grace when you have two kids to take care of and a life to rebuild that looks different than you expected it to?
