I sit by myself today in my backyard. My husband would have been 37 today. We would have been out our cabin, drinking beer and enjoying the long weekend. Today, I sit by myself and wish him a very quiet happy birthday alone. I have been a wreck for over a month dreading this weekend. Today, I'm exhausted but calm. It's the calm that I hope stays with me to endure the one year mark tomorrow.
Happy 37th birthday today wherever your journey has lead you my love.
