olemisfit Posted August 16, 2018 Report Share Posted August 16, 2018 When someone you love Becomes a memory ... That memory becomes A treasure! My wife was born 76 years ago today. Her birthdays aren't a fun event anymore. That ended a little more than 2 1/2 years ago. I miss all those opportunities of being able to wrap my arms around her, look down at her (she was 5 feet tall, and I am 6'3"), suck face a little bit, and wish her a Happy Birthday. Now I have to settle for picking up her urn and giving it a big ole hug. But I do thank the Lord above that my mind still functions, and I can spend time remembering all those treasured memories. When these trigger events first started coming over me in the earlier days of this journey I tried to shake them off without giving in to them. It always seemed like the harder I attempted to resist them, the harder they were on me. Now I just give in to them when they happen. It does seem like I'm able to re-visit the treasured memory without getting totally discombobulated by the emotion of it all. Whatever works, right? (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAREST WIFE O' MINE). And as always...One foot in front of the other Darrel 2 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
