Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning and butterfly kisses at night

       From the song “Butterfly Kisses” by Tim McGraw


 Yesterday was no different from any other day on this grief journey.  I had actually gone to bed earlier than normal, before 10 PM.  I read for a bit of the book that a very dear friend sent me called “open to HOPE”. 


   I lay in bed thinking of how much I missed having Jim’s arms around me, the hugs, his laughter, his voice, the little things he did that annoyed me some times, but most of all his kisses.  I felt not one but two kisses on my cheek as I lay there.  It was like someone just softly caressing your cheek.  The song “Butterfly Kisses” intruded my thoughts.  Maybe because that was what it felt like those “Butterfly Kisses”, I could almost see his face as he softly kissed me. 


   I knew he was with me and that everything will be okay.  I know that my moving forward in this grief journey is what he wants.  I know he is with me in spirit and there is a new found hope that life is progressing as it should.


Wishing Peace and Hope to all…

Hi Janet,

I'm so glad you could feel Jim's presence and know that he is with you in spirit; for sure our partner's want us to move forward, to continue, after all, it was what we were doing with them all along...Peace
