Where does time go? Some days I feel at a standstill and the others… I feel I’m honoring you by moving forward! “Get busy living” you loved to say, well I’m all in on that!! Sometimes maybe too much LOL!
You continue to and always will live with us in our hearts and minds… You instilled so many life lessons that we will never forget!
In the years since you passed we have had bad days and we have had good days. Many times we hide those bad days and try to learn from them; they give us strength as we realize there will be better days and we WILL have good days again as we reflect on the many memories.
Our Ohana has seen some changes since you left us… you have another beautiful granddaughter who arrived tiny but oh.so.mighty!!! I’m certain that this little one was watched over by many of our angel family. Since I took a leap of faith and met a man, a fellow widower, we continue to enjoy attending events, travelling and laughing together. He has taken me under his wing to love and support. I would have never thought I’d love or be happy again but I know now that grief and joy can in fact co-exist. It’s all part of the duality of grief; stillness and movement… Your oldest granddaughter is growing so quickly; smart as a whip! She recently informed a stranger about your accident… it’s her reality too! and asked me some very pointed questions about you, me and my ‘boyfriend’. I’m glad that we can openly discuss our new normal, she is a very brave little girl!
Noone can ever take your place, we talk of you often, say your name and will continue with the little ones so that they know and remember you!
I’m still at our house… I try so very hard to keep things as you had set up! That front yard tho’!!! LOL… I know it was meant to be low maintenance but dang… 🙂 It means a lot to me to keep it the way you had envisioned. I love sitting in the backyard admiring the view and recalling all the time you spent making it what it is today.
We will continue to live life to the fullest and Get Busy Living all in moderation…
Much love to you in Heaven Beano…
