I decided something.
I'm not just a widow anymore. I'm a woman.
I used to be a woman. Then I was Rick's wife. Then I was a widow. Now I am a woman again.
If you think about it, in some ways I'll technically always be Rick's wife and I'll technically always be a widow. But when it comes right down to it, along with both of those titles or without any of those titles, I'll always be a woman.
I took off my remaining wedding ring while I was away. Maybe I'm a widow, but I'm not married anymore. And I'm definitely a woman.
