On May 24th, 2013 my husband (Douglas) passed from ALS. Today I'm extra sad...then I looked at the date, with tears in my eyes its 9 months today, thats it thats why I'm extra sad.
But. what I have really reflected on is as this month has passed I have had 3 major family events. One event was my mother in laws 80 birthday party (Douglas's Mom) which was about 20 family members. Second event was my sisters and I get together for our annual sisters brunch and yesterday my sons 24th birthday party.
All very beautiful days with all very beautiful people and very special events in my life. I feel beyond blessed to have
all my family in my life with their love and support. so what is my problem??? besides grief, besides everyday lifes ups
Ohhhh this is it......it Is his fading legacy, memory, his very strong personality, his ability to give asking nothing in return and most important is what we would call our crazy LOVE. As family and I celebrated these last three events in the past month he comes up less and less in conversation.
I feel like if I dont say something about him, he will fade. I had to mention his name he lived 55 years it scares me to know that his memory might disappear and I can only be sad. Death is still so new to me, he was the closest person to me, and experiencing death
with someone your so close to is so very hard to let go.
Be Blessed and Thanks for reading.....
