oh gosh. I made it all the way to the very last line, then lost it. But I do love the positive note behind the article.

Oh, Anna, thank you for sharing this link. So beautifully describes what is so hard to express. I have found great happiness in sharing the lives of my children and grandchildren, but the loss of my sweet Jim floats around us always: bright and lovingly but sometimes so sadly. Sending hugs and love to you. 

It made me cry, too.  I do feel bad that increasing time since DH's death will cause his memory to fade.  That put it so beautifully, I'm printing it out.

Thanks for sharing this Anna.  I think we can all relate in some way.  For me, Vicky was so good at taking charge.  She was the president of the Soccer Booster Club for eight years, and gave many speeches that I sat back and soaked in her spirit.  I was so proud of her.  I can't tell you how I miss that.  But I will also say that I feel that she lives in me now, and I am becoming the person we built together.  It's so hard, because I feel I've lost most of me.  But that's not entirely true, because I carry her with me. The more time that goes by, the more I realize that I am us now.  Kind of hard to wrap my head around because it's so new, but this is how she lives on.

Hugs Anna! Thank you for sharing this awesome read!
