Buffalo Wings and Things

Another Sunday early morning without you as I sit and think of our last Sunday together.

You had that awful chest cold "Mr. I never get sick." and I sent you to the Dr. two days prior. Yep Bronchitis as your wife the nurse suspected.

Oh I babied you as always that morning. breakfast in bed, several cups of fresh brewed coffee brought to you and sweet love making as was most mornings before we started our busy days.

I was glad you slept in a bit to get your rest. I wanted…

Saints and Widows.

The day after Halloween is All Saints day. In some cultures it is the day the family members go to the cemetery to tidy up the family graves.  I guess that makes sense in the northern hemisphere where winter is approaching.  Here, in the southern hemisphere, with summer approaching it really makes no difference if you do or not.  I chose not to go.  I still have to arrange the headstone for Ray (which will also be mine when the time comes) and the grave site is not yet flat and grassed.  The…

17 months since I lost him and I feel so…

Our minds and lives are filled with contradictions especially when your beloved dies in front of you

My Roses Nov 1st 2013

I can understand your feelings.  I have seen so many beautiful men and women on this site.  If your loved one dies in front of you - it is the worst thing possible, especially if they are suffering/injured.  My husband passed away at home but he passed peacefully.  However, I cannot forget his face.  His beautiful blue eyes looking at me.  His dark hair. (I trimmed some of his hair as a memory of his beauty).  I also placed roses on his shoulder as he lay there.…
