My Facebook feed is full of two types of posts today:
I’M SO HAPPY AND IN LOVE AND I HAVE THE BEST SPOUSE EVER!
I’M SO SAD BECAUSE I MISS MY DEAD SPOUSE
interspersed with the occasional:
HAPPY SINGLES AWARENESS DAY! and the memes that go along with that.
And on one hand… I am so very happy with my husband (who is currently making me breakfast as I type) and very much in love with him.
On the other…. I miss the guy who first told me 21 years ago that he loves me. 21 years. That’s how long we’d have been together. That’s how long I’ve loved that man.
6 years ago he woke from his coma, remembered it was our “in love” anniversary and told me.
Today… a completely different man loves me and tells me that every day.
So it is a happy/sad day. A good/bad day. A day of love and a day of grief.
But that’s the way it always is…
Happy 21st anniversary my Love. I will love you for the rest of my life.
