Finally, I got some good news. The mailman arrived with the mail. There was an envelope with my name on it but no return address. I hesitated to open it but I am so glad I did!
It came from my husband's employer and it included a cheque from the life insurance company that his work uses. Thank heavens at least one thing came through for me!
However, it is bittersweet. It is difficult to see a monetary value on my husband's life. Is his life really only worth that much? I feel he is worth so much more than the dollar amount on this cheque.
Again, bittersweet. I'm happy because now I can pay the funeral expenses and pay off a few outstanding bills. I'm sad because I am able to do this only because my husband passed away. Too bad I can't use this money to buy him back his life!
After yesterday's upsetting news, I really needed this.
