mfh Posted February 9, 2011 Report Share Posted February 9, 2011 I used to like Valentine's Day...until last year when I was visiting Bill in the hospital weeks before his death. I brought him a white teddy bear...and I don't believe he ever knew I got it. White teddy bears were pretty common gifts to me from Bill...usually accompanied by jewelry or candy or something he knew I liked. So I now have that teddy bear and it brings back sad memories. This year, the first Valentine's Day without him and home with the flu (so the TV is on a lot more) I am noticing all the V-Day ads-chocolate, dinners, jewelry and more. Each one an ambush. One would think I would be used to ambushes by now but that is just the point...ambushes are always unexpected and painful. Approaching the first anniversary of Bill's death, I relive these final weeks especially as I am home "ambushed" by the flu and with lots of time to think. Anyone else struggling with V-Day?
