I did not cry today.  I was not sad today.  I did not have regrets today.  

Today was not about your absence or your loss.

Today, "our" boys deserved a standing ovation!

It was not the roses.  It was not the chocolates.

It was the photo collage they created of every picture of you and I together.

It was our twelve year old and seventeen year old, honoring their mother, their father, and their love for both on Valentine's Day!

I was smiling and my heart melted.  I know you were smiling and your heart was melting too.

Today, was about love.

Life is about love.

My love, your love, our love . . . it lives on.  It lives.

Thank you ladies :)  Nice to hear from you all!

We are in the 3rd year of the new life (like most of you), and it was such a validation for me, that the boys are growing "with" a truly healthy/loving connection to their father still very much a part of their lives, thoughts, and actions <3
