Today would have been my husbands 58th birthday
I miss him terribly - I miss him beautifully
I miss the way he would tell me every night, as
we went to sleep, how much he loved me
..and every morning how beautiful I was.
I mostly miss how his eyes would shine when
he looked at me.
I wonder, will I ever make anyone's eyes shine like that again?
I think not, but that's OK
I had it once
I'm lucky to have had it at all

I think you are the only people I can tell this to. I am blessed to have you as my friends.

..and yes, my dogs and cats look at me with wonder and love, and that - believe me - makes me able to wake in the mornin
