21 years ago...now 22
« on: April 23, 2015, 05:15:45 AM »
I was waking up to get ready for the happiest day of my life. A long day of two wedding ceremonies and receptions for both our Hindu and Catholic traditions.  By the end of the night we were both exhausted but finally together after five and a half years.  Today I will treat myself to a massage and some time to myself.

We had such a beautiful life together.  We rarely fought, I can only remember one real fight and in retrospect it was over something ridiculous.  We were made for each other and appreciated it.  I miss her so much today.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

Many IRL don't understand that as widowed folk some of us still want our anniversaries acknowledged,  for us it was the happiest (or one of) days of our lives and nothing can take that away.  Happy Anniversary RIFOF,  I too have seen the wedding pictures you posted and it looks like it was a magical day.

Well here I am again another year has passed and I still miss our life. So much has changed and yet it seems like just yesterday when we were young, in love and making our new life together.

Sigh...well you all know what I mean...I seem to have run out of words,  I said it all in my post last year. My general state of being lately is just get from one day to the next and then in the blink of an eye its another year gone.
