32 months ago…..that’s 973.98 days since Jim’s been gone. Some days it feels like yesterday, others a lifetime. My life continues to move forward as I grow, transform and evolve. While I’m not the same person I was, one thing will never change, and that’s my Love for him.
I. Love. You Husband
Life is different
Without you here.
Although I can’t see you
I feel you are near….
The pain of losing you
Is one I can’t bare.
I choose to celebrate us
And the love that we share.
I’ve been on this widow’s journey of mine almost 32 months now….A few weeks ago I embarked on another road trip…this one a solo trip back up to PA, my first time back since leaving there April 2017.
Knowing I wouldn’t be able to make the drive all in one day, I made a short 36 hour pit stop on Chincoteague…..the sunrises were there to welcome me back, as were our neighbors, who’s island cottage I’m blessed to call my home away from home……….
How Blessed a woman I am..to have called this place home..where I scattered Jim’s ashes and I can visit whenever I feel the need to
My favorite time of day ☀️
Front porching it ☕️
What a gift to spend time on the front porch with this guy…My Jim’s second best friend
With no itinerary or destination in mind, we hopped in the car and drove to Savannah just because we could. We ended up here. St. John the Baptist Cathedral
The photos really don’t do this beautiful church justice, nor can they capture the feelings that overcame us when we stepped inside 🙏
Back from a road trip..my first ‘girlfriend’s’ hit the road trip, reconnected with a dear friend I haven’t seen in 13 years…our destination, Charleston, to visit the Angel Oak Tree. We had our own reasons for the visit…even with the changes the last 13 years have had on our own personal lives, we still fit 😊
Jersey Girls and Oak Trees 💚
Many people are struggling because they have not used what God has given them. God gives you an acorn; you invest it and it will become a tree! Stop praying for trees while acorns are lying all over the ground. God answered your prayer for the tree when He sent you the acorn. Your creative ideas are acorns from which mighty trees emerge. Your talent is given to you to be multiplied. ~TB~
Today I’ve reached the two and a half year mark since Jim gained his wings…it still boggles my mind how incredibly fast the time has and does continue to fly by. But, each day brings me one day closer to being reunited with him…in the meantime, the hands of time keep ticking away.
I. Love. You. Husband.
Is measured in hours, minutes and seconds…
Is measured by the amount of days
You’ve been gone…
Since I last saw your face,
Heard your voice…
Kissed and felt your touch.
I didn’t think I could
Live without you.
What I have discovered is,
Though you’re physically not here,
You reside deep within me,
Deep Deep in my heart.
Always and Forever.
