Time is even weirder than usual for me. I can’t believe tomorrow is the last day of November squares, and it is impossible to think it has been 34 weeks since the death of my amazing Robert. Some days it feels like only yesterday I found him dead, and other days it feels like he has been gone forever. I miss our life together and I miss creating a shared future. I miss his presence, his calmness, his smile and his voice. I can though still feel his love, and hope time never changes that.

More life altering moments lie ahead in 2023, consequently I don’t yet know if squares will return. I hope it will as I love squaring, it is also a good distraction and you are all a great support. I will keep you posted on my square plans, and I will also keep walking. I hope you will keep walking too, and if you haven’t squared this month – there is still time! Find out more here on how to submit your #WalkingSquares.

  1. Thank you, Becky, for braving the squares this time, sharing your journey and always giving such thoughtful feedback to participants. You are carried in my heart and mind wherever I go, and probably always will be.

  2. Thank you for hosting walking squares this month. It couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I also needed the distraction and it made me get out every day, even if it was just around the block. I hope you’ll do this again and I hope to see the odd post here and there, letting us know how you’re getting on. Carol

  3. Dearest Becky, my heart aches for you and, yes, Robert will always be with you. As I always have, I enjoyed participating in Squares this month and, although I struggled to join in every day, on those days I could, interacting with you brightened my day and made me smile. Grief is such a horrible burden, but one I hope will lessen over time. Keep walking and talking and time will help with all the rest. Love and hugs your way as usual πŸ’œπŸ€—πŸ’œ

  4. Hi Becky, I’ve so enjoyed having squares back this month, but better yet it was fun hearing from you daily. It always adds a smile to my face. So thank you. I know next year will be crazy, but I hope you can find a month or two or even a couple of weeks to host squares because of the joy it brings me and other bloggers. Although, you know I support and love you no matter what you decide to do.

    And yes, you will always Robert’s love. That’s a guarantee. It may morph overtime, but that love is everlasting.

    Here is my entry for today.

  5. Sorry I haven’t been able to contribute a lot this time around, Becky, but I did manage one square! 😊 Well done for you for sharing your walks and your thoughts. And time’s a funny old thing, isn’t it?
    Keep on keeping on, and all that! πŸ™‚

  6. I can just imagine that time will play tricks with you right now. Like many others I’m grateful that you’ve found the time to share Squares with us again, and glad that you’re finding walking some sort of comfort. I know you’ll keep up the walking and I trust that when you feel the time is right (but not before) you’ll be back hosting more squares. We’ll be thinking of you meanwhile, you can count on that.

    Here’s my final set of walking squares for you: https://www.toonsarah-travels.blog/gallery-the-old-town-of-dhulikhel/

  7. Lovely, peaceful photo, Becky. I’m skipping today, but will be back for the last one tomorrow. It’s been fun having squares back, and I hope it continues, but that’s for you to figure out as you move forward. The amount of time you put into it is amazing. Thank you.
