It has been just over two years since you left. When I moved I brought your hospital bed with me. It was to be temporary. I knew I would donate it. It gave me something to sleep in temporarily. But other things needed replacing or fixing and they were more important because, after all, I had a bed to sleep in.

Well...the day arrived and I bought a complete bedroom set and new mattress last week. It is a queen-size. It is like sleeping on a cloud. It is so big I get lost in it. It is beautiful. It is empty even when I am in it. Last night I placed four pillows around me so I could find me when I woke this morning. I am still looking for you. Maybe I always will be.

Awe Barbee, (((((((Big Hugs))))))).

The bedroom has to be one of, if not, the worst room in the house for us. I've tried a lot of things to be able to sleep in my bedroom. I've yet to hit on a magic bullet when dealing with this landmine of a room in my house. Now outside of my bed and my house is a totally different story. I too will sometimes wake up looking for someone next to me and have to figure out where I'm at. Having a fiancee now complicates things. With my long distance relationship we will meet in the middle either in a hotel or in a rented cabin. It's these rare nights I get to escape my haunted bedroom and get a peaceful nights sleep in the arms of my fiancee; usually 8 to 10 hrs compared to 4 to 6 hrs.

Yes I think we will always be looking for them.

Wishing you peace and comfort.
