Jan 44 Posted September 6, 2007 Report Share Posted September 6, 2007 My wonderful, husband David, has been gone four months now. This past week-end, however, he provided me with a much needed smile. In March David asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I replied,"I'm tired of white walls in the kitchen. I want 2 gallons of paint so we can brighten it up. I taped up about 14 samples of colors around the room and afted a week of looking at them, David picked out the color he wanted. He went in for surgery on April 17, and died unexpectedly on April 19. I, of course, didn't give painting the kitchen any thought until this last weekend. It had been an emotionally rough week and I thought this chore would bring me closer to him. One coat of primer and 3 coats of paint later, I realized just how color blind my beloved husband was. My kitchen looks like a shiny ripe tomato. As I looked at it this morning, I could hear David give a laugh and exclaim "Holy S--T! Well, you said you wanted bright" ;-) I've decided I'm going to keep the color since David picked it out and also every time I get really down, I know I have a room to go to that will bring a smile to my heart. Hope it brought a bit of a smile to all you friends out there. Jan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
