    Don t try to be noble, be real.There are so many similarities in this book on my own life story that I consider it providential or to use amodern term synchronicity.Ingrid s husband died of heart failure in the couples bedroom after bathing, he just collapsed after telling Ingrid that his body was trying to tell him something Ingrid did CPR My husband called me to help him after he had just taken a shower, he told me he was weak, I got him to our bedroom where he collapsed right in front Don t try to be noble, be real.There are so many similarities in this book on my own life story that

trying to tell him something Ingrid did CPR My husband called me to help him after he had just taken a shower, he told me he was weak, I got him to our bedroom where he collapsed right in front of me My son in law did CPR.Ingrid and Walter had a public ministry, they were both missionaries Dick and I also had a public ministry, we owned a Christian bookshop.Ingrid and Walter experienced a Marriage Encounter as Dick and I Even though Ingrid and Walter counseled many couples on marriage, they also had to renew their relationship It takes courage to admit that your marriage and relationship need a boast.Ingrid and Walter had 5 children and 1 grandchild when Walter was struck down with heart failure in 1979 and that year had celebrated 27 years of married life.Dick and I had 3 children and 8 grandchildren in 2012 when he died, we had just celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary in the hospital while he was recovering from his 3rd heart by pass.The above is a shortened list of what we as couples had in common before Ingrid and I entered the widow stage.My true identity with Ingrid becameinward as I began to read her grieving process.Here are a few of Ingrid s quotes that are very inspirational I haven t lost Walter because I know where he is, I ve lost myself I no longer have an identity as the wife of Walter Trobisch, not even the mother of his children I have to accept my loneliness Be at home in my own heart and discover the center of life there Other meaningful quotes throughout the book Anne Lindbergh In the end one has to discard shields and remain vulnerable and To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable Raebe German Poet In the moment when the true artist is creating, he has neither wife husband or child and least of all friends This particular inspirational saying came to Ingrid when she was pondering her life with Walter who had been very busy as a pastor, counselor and writer Ingrid realizing that she had to put aside her needs so that Walter could do God s work This situation throughout their relationship became an impediment for Ingrid Ingrid always wished that Walter and her would have hadtime together.During Ingrid s time of grief, Ingrid discovered a journal that Walter had in his possession, there were not many entries in the journal, Ingrid decided to write in Walter s journal during her year of grief Ingrid would first write down her thoughts and feelings remembering that feelings are not right or wrong Afterwards Ingrid would write down what she believes Walter is conversing to her A third voice came in between them, it was very spiritual and produced much healing for Ingrid and Walter I found such a journal just last week in my husband s night stand Synchronicity Like Ingrid, I will use this as a tool to dialogue with Dick Relationships are not over when one of the partners die, it is no longer a physical relationship but a spiritual relationship I have found that dreams also help this along But beware it is not all wine and roses Relationships are never ended unless one of them closes the bridge to the other side It works both ways and of course we have to invite the Holy Spirit into the dialogue.Willa Cather Roots are to be found where you have spent your childhood from the ages of 4 14 This is so true, Ingrid through much painstaking inner work, realized that this is the time that it all begins and this is where one must go back to after a tragic loss I have found this to be very true in my own grief I have gone back to my 16th year, I have found that this was the age of innocence, the age of questioning, the age of seeing life in abeautiful way but during that year I also experienced many doubts and fears about myself and my future It s pretty much like that when you are grieving You have lost a wonderful part of yourself, you are having doubts and fears about your future but you can see a little light at the end of the tunnel.My family and I celebrated my husband s life with a get together We celebrated Mass, had brunch at our favorite diner, planted a tree at our home in which everyone participated, ate a hearty dinner together and topped it off with a telephone call from our oldest grandson who is doing basic training for the Army National Guard in Missouri.A quote from Ingrid s book by John Steinbeck epitomizes my husband s life story The effectiveness of a man s life can be measured by the depth of the wounds his death leaves others So like the tree that our family planted in memory of Dick, I must have patience in the transplanting process for myself so that my roots will take hold in the new soil.Gerald Manley Hopkins O thou Lord of Life, send my roots rain It rained this week after weeks of drought, good for the new tree Time is of the essence, I am in the last quarter of my life, what needs to be done needs to be done now
