She knows what pain feels like. Not just the pain of getting dumped or ghosted or cheated on. She’s experienced extreme heartache. The type of heartache that can’t be repaired with a drunken text or a rebound boy. The type of heartache where the person you’re missing is never coming back. She’s strong, because she made a connection with someone — someone beautiful, breathtaking. Someone that deserved to live a long, healthy life free of hurt. But that person was ripped away f
His smile is everything... but even more than that was his attitude. Josh nicknamed me squirrel early on in our relationship due to my squirrely attention span. I would always ask him what a squirrels best friend was because that's the animal he would be. The best he ever came up with was a nut! So here we are waiting to get called back for chemo joking about squirrels and nuts. He always had a smile on his face and the most positive attitude going into situations that most p
I don't know what I would do without this amazing human!!! Losing my husband at 29 years old has not been an easy thing to learn how to live with. And I think one of the hardest parts is the fact that at my age, it is incredibly difficult to find anyone who can remotely relate to my extraordinary loss. However, this guy right here is one of the few that really understands my grief. Being able to spend time with my brother in law and share memories about Josh this weekend was
I received this amazing message from one of Josh's West Point classmates and I wanted to share it with everyone... Fabi, We've never met before, but I was a classmate of your husband back at the academy. I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss and have been meaning to share this with you, as it honors Josh's memory. To begin with, Josh and I weren't close friends. However, I consider him a role model in a non-traditional aspect. We served together as Beast cadre back in summer
This video always makes me smile... One of Josh's favorite things to do was make me mad just so he could laugh at my reaction. That's why he smiles and looks over at me during the part of the song that says "How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad, trying hard not to smile though I feel bad". Fun fact: he also knows the words to every single song ever written. That smile though!!!
"I wouldn't want anyone else with me on this journey she is always my #wcw @fabicalborn" - Josh Powell I wouldn't want to be with anyone else either babe... Josh faced some of the hardest days of his life with a smile on his face. He didn't let having cancer rob him of the joy that he had in his life. I encourage you to do the same when you can. Don't ever let anyone or anything have power to rob you of joy and happiness. I know you are tired. I know you are physically and em
Two years ago today I moved across the country for a boy I fell in love with at a bar. Two months after we met he was diagnosed with cancer and 3 months after that I left everything I knew to follow the other half of my heart that I had left in Tennessee. And if I could do it all over again I would in a heart beat. I've learned more about myself in the past two years than most learn in a lifetime. People don't take risks because they're are scared and they don't want to get h
