Title: I took a walk today...
Post by: Wheelerswife on November 23, 2017, 05:21:58 PM
...out in the cold with my dog.  I do this almost every day, part of my escape from what feels unbearable in my life. I barely get out the door and I start talking out loud, usually to my second husband. Today, along with telling my conspicuously absent love how much I miss him and love him, I tried to channel the spirit of Thanksgiving (US) and I told him how grateful I am that he came into my life. My life would be so much less rich if it were not for our all-too-short time together. I would not have known such vulnerable love. I would not have been exposed to so many ideas and cultures and places and opportunities to learn and to change my views of the world.

As unhappy as I am at present - and as uncertain as I am about the future - I know for sure that I am grateful for having met and loved such an amazing man.
