Description
Poor Widow Me: Moments of feeling & dealing & finding the funny along the way captures the essence of widowhood with a fresh, smart, often humorous, always searingly honest perspective in a collection of 84 bits about life after a husband dies that will bring a unique sense of grief relief to widows and their loved ones, emphasizing that when we lose our spouse we don't lose ourselves. Carol Scibelli is a comedy writer so she is wired to be funny, so there is plenty to chuckle about in the book. Humor is honest, laughing is healing. And, although these incidents are from her life, the core of her story is very much every widow's story. When Carol's husband realized he wasn't going to live, he said to her "This is going to be a life-changer for you. It will be an adventure." She often says to him in death what she rarely said to him in life, "You were right, honey."
