mfh Posted January 30, 2013 Report Share Posted January 30, 2013 January 30 is a day filled with wonderful memories. Each year it was set aside to celebrate and honor Bill's birth, his presence on this planet, in my life, in the lives of the many people his spirit touched over the years, and our life together. Sometimes we exchanged gifts. But we always spent the day together, even if that meant juggling our schedules so we did not go to work. He loved to eat out so we ate all three meals at three different restaurants...dinner at our favorite in Madison. A hike or drive in the afternoon, depending on the weather...January was always iffy. Bill's life was one of gift...his generous spirit lives on in my heart. His kindness is still my teacher. His warmth was loved and enjoyed by everyone who met him. So this day is bittersweet for me...my third now without him by my side (or is he?). I will do what I do on every birthday, every wedding anniversary and on the anniversary of his birth to eternal life. I will read some of his love poems and cards (exchanged every single month on the 22nd) for many many years...as well as many in between. I will light a candle, listen to Mahler's 5th -I think I might be able to do that and there will be tears and smiles, memories and gratitude. I put this pdf together as a birthday tribute to my love. birthday.pdf You might have to zoom in to read it easily.
