Do you think his mother would like to know that he picked out that card for her? I think that might be a special gift for her on Mother's day. Just a thought. Best wishes.
Having a good morning until.... sending the mothers day cards to arrive by this weekend. Of course, my husband was always on top of this... so today I found our "box of cards" - always on standby so we had cards at the ready for every event. Then it hit me... I found the card he had picked out specially for his mother this year...and here came the tears... do I send her the special one that was going to come just from him? Or do I send the other generic mothers day card that would have been from both of us?!?! ...I decided on the generic one, as the words of the other one weren't from me. Then, thinking I was over it, I went to sign the cards... oh no! the first time signing a card just from me...only me... no little "&" sign and no handing him the card sign...just me, by myself...ugh. It's the little things I don't even think about ahead of time that hit me the hardest. I'm just me now, not us anymore. Yuk.
Dawn - Thinking of you today.
Dawn, I am praying for you today!
Ktl.... I would feel the exact same way. I have asked God why he took my husband away from my children when my very own father is worthless. Why couldn't he take him instead? It just isn't fair!
does anyone get mad at their friends?? there are 2 couples that gary and i always loved and i still do but they make me so angry because they fight so much!!! they actually are talking about divorce!!! why did gary have to die when we were so happy... i know it's disgusting to say but seriously if they are so miserable of all the ppl in our lives why gary?? we were so happy and divorce was not in our vocabulary... i had been there done that and gary showed me what true love was and then he is taken away from me and these couples who fight and throw divorce around like it's nothing are still here.. how is this fair..... i know i sound horrid but seriously!
