One

It's been one year.

The bed gets made in the morning and stays that way.

I haven't had to open the hood of any of my cars for any reason more serious than checking the oil.

I don't get scolded for not going to get stitches when I cut myself.

I would trade it all back in an instant.

Time is your friend. But,,out of the blue a reminder and the tears will be back. Just keep in mind the good times. Good luck.

It has happened out of the blue before and it will again. Everyone should have a love like this just to experience how glorious it can be...and it was glorious.
Thanks for dropping by!

We all should, few do. Be grateful and miss her every day.

Glorious, indeed. I pray I am as strong if ever this comes to pass in my life.

Larry said...

I do miss her every day Brigid, and I am grateful.

Aggie, you are stronger than you know.

Thanks for dropping by, both of you!

Bless you, Larry - I still remember this from last year. I hope each day is a tiny bit easier to bear.

One day, you will be together again. In the meantime, there's an angel in Heaven who knows your name, and is watching over you every second of every day....

I didn't know.

I'm glad you weathered another year. You've honoured her memory; she would be proud of you.

MissTammy said...

Was thinking the other day you must be coming up on the anniversary soon; God bless and keep you, GGE. And you know darn well she'd want you to get those stitches.

Still praying for you.

Thank you, fellow 'roon.

Larry said...

MissTammy, yes I know...and then when I didn't she would say "You never listen to me!"
Thanks for dropping by!

Larry said...

Zimri, it was she who honoured me.
Thanks for dropping by!

Larry said...

Teresa, it is easier to bear, and if she is looking over me she has her hands full!
Thanks for dropping by!

I know this is a throwaway Jack Nicholson line, but it's true ladies. You make us want to be better men.
I am a better man because of her.
Thanks for dropping by everyone.
