All is well.
We just returned from Los Angeles and had a wonderful time seeing old friends, (and surprise visits from family!) sitting on the beach, eating wonderful food, talking, being together as a family, going on walks, attending the temple, and celebrating Vic's birthday. (Which is officially today).
My sister is vacationing in the the Middle East and I miss her.
I fear for this coming Friday. The 22nd of May--how could it possibly be here again?
The crab apple trees are showing their bright pink blossoms and I am remembering....
Remembering things I don't want to remember but have to because I love her. Reality has to be faced eventually. But I must say, angels must be very near because we are surviving quite well. Peter is helping so much.
Two friends lost loved ones in the past week. Lyndi's 21 yr. brother passed away very, very suddenly and unexpectedly, and Emily's former sister- in- law died of a drug overdose at 29. My heart breaks with them.
I promise that life is fragile. I promise you won't regret cherishing everyday. I promise you won't take any earthly possessions with you when you go. I promise that love and kindness are all that matter. I promise.
Time keeps marching.
Happy Birthday, honey bun. I hope you enjoyed your surprise party in L.A. (of course you did, I've asked you a million times..." Were you surprised? Do you love me? Was it fun? Are you happy?") I know it isn't easy having your birthday just two days before Lucy's passing. I know it isn't easy being married to me. But we're going to make it. We are blessed with so many wonderful friends who enrich our lives and carry us through. You deserve so much more than anything I could ever do for you---but I will do my best by loving you with all my liver and lungs. I have no doubt Lucy and Peter are proud to call you Daddy. Just like I'm proud to call you Husband.
