Two lives, two losses, and one meeting that changed their lives forever. Learning to move on and to love again isn't always easy.
The circle of life. It's something we all know about, but we are never truly prepared for the unexpected. The unexpected that comes out of nowhere. No warning, no heads-up, nothing. Just God giving us pure bliss and happiness and then taking it away in the blink of an eye.
For me, losing my husband to a massive heart attack on our one-year wedding anniversary, and at the age of 27, was something I didn't think I could ever heal from. The emptiness, the loneliness, the numbness, and the need just to get through the day were overwhelming. My name is Paisley Logan, and this is my story.
Life. Full of surprises, disappointments, and heartache. It's strange how we live life with certainty. We're certain that we'll find the love of our life, get married, have children, and live happily ever after. No one is ever prepared when a life-threatening illness hits. We're so busy living our daily lives that we don't think about such things.
I was naïve until my wife was diagnosed with cervical cancer and passed away less than a year later. I was angry. She was the love of my life, and we'd been married only five years. We wanted to start a family, and it was when she had trouble getting pregnant that she was diagnosed. I'd never lost anyone before. I'd never experienced death. I felt like God was playing a cruel joke on me. How could he bring her into my life and then take her away so young? Even the best-laid plans in life get altered. Mine did. Everyone kept telling me that time would heal all wounds, but this was a wound that would never fully be healed. Trying to get back to the normalcy of life was exhausting, so I didn't try anymore. My name is Ben Preston, and this is my story.
