A child's birthday
« on: September 15, 2017, 01:02:02 PM »
It's my son's birthday today.  His sixth since his dad died.  He is doing so very well, by any standard. But....

My mom, my dad, and of course my husband were a big part of that amazing day. And they're all dead now.

I wish my husband could see his son, a fine young man.  I wish he were here with me so we could shake our heads at each other and say, "Remember?" and "Where did the time go?"

I've been through 5 birthdays with each of the 4 kids now since DW died.  I wish the same...
Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
