Queeniemary Posted November 10, 2010 Report Share Posted November 10, 2010 Yesterday was my 65th birthday. It was bittersweet realizing that I am getting older, and Michael will forever be 62. It was actually a great birthday. My siblings and their spouses and I flew from Arkansas and Texas to Arizona to visit another sis. We had a great visit, and celebrated my birthday a day early on Monday. First plane trip for me in 22 years. My brother in law, and myself got the full body pat down both coming and going. (artificial knees), but they were very nice, and it was no big deal. Sad to be in AZ without Michael, he loved AZ so much. I missed him so much. We all felt that a big part of us was missing. We visited with our brother in law who is in a wonderful facility for dementia patients. It was great to see him, and he really enjoyed our visit very much. I will never stop missing Michael, and there are still times that the fact that he is gone just takes my breath away. However, I believe I may have turned a corner. I am able to enjoy some things, and although I miss him so much, the raw grief has diminished in some respects. In just a few days it will be 10 months. He will always be with me. Praying for all of us on this journey that we did not ask to make. Mary (Queeniemary) in Arkansas Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
