Happy Birthday In Heaven 💛

Happy Birthday in Heaven….

I Miss you Husband

My Beloved Best Friend..

Your smile, your laugh

Your love that transcends…

On this, your first birthday

That we are apart

I draw strength from our love

And when the tears start…..

I’ll cry my river

While deep within my soul

I feel you with me

And for a little while, I’ll pretend I’m whole.

Thank You…Today Was A Good Day…

The past few days has proven to be an emotional roller-coaster for me…and I have to be honest and tell you I DONT DO ROLLER-COASTERS!! 😬

With that out of the way, I’d like to Thank Y’All who have been traveling and sharing this journey with me. Just knowing your ‘out there’ means the world to me. Your kind words, encouragement and virtual hugs really do help. ❤ as do finding hearts when you least expect them…….

So, my Jims Birthday is right around the corner (Tuesday). If he was still here, he’d of been smokin’ and grilling this weekend away. My son Brad, stepped in. He got out the smoker, and smoked the last rack of ribs Jim bought. We enjoyed a beautiful day, outside. Ate good food, toasted my man and shared memories. Healing….one moment, one memory at a time……


Yesterday was for shit….it marked 18 weeks since he left and it finally caught up with me….I cried..I drank..and I cried some more…….it was long over do…

Had a rough day yesterday….

The worst since he left.

Tears, sobbing and puffy eyes

Left me feeling spent….
It was a long time coming

Something I’ve put off

Avoidance isn’t the answer

Acceptance at all cost….
I know time is a healer

There is no calendar with grief

I’m grateful for the purge I had

It did bring some relief…..
Today is a new day

Sun is shining bright

The purge left me lighter

I know I’ll be all right….
