    This morning as I was shaving while standing in front of the cooler's saving blast, out in my shop, I noticed a wooden board with test swatches of stains my wife had applied, seeking the best one for her project. It immediately hit me to seek opinion: Given that if one loses their spouse, many little things left behind, like those stain swatches, or perhaps jewelry, or any number of things remaining, will bring back memories possibly painful, or possibly precious.

    Which it would be, I dunno, really. Which way would you go with this?

    It's both...painful and precious memories.

    I gave most away but have momentos.❤️

    Took me a long time to do it though.

    Still had everything when my ex moved in with me....he was nice about it and he offered to pay to put it in storage...I did but eventually got rid of it.

    I think about the subject every once in a while.

    I would focus on the moment as her being alive and well...doing her thing. If she should leave before you...then you focus on her as she was and the wonderful things she left behind for you.
