Happy Two-Month Anniversary to me

Wednesday afternoon. I woke this morning to the ding-a-ling noise of my phone ringing. I picked it up and croaked something into the receiver that sounded like, "Hruff?," and then I heard the best three words ever - Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart. Mick waited up as late as he could in Japan just to call and say hello. And he remembered our anniversary. And I didn't. I have flowers in my office, too (they smell great). So, why am I holding back tears? Perhaps the better question would be, "When is it too long for me to still be grieving the loss of my husband for two years?"

aw Denise, it can't be easy. But look how lucky you are! You have such a wonderful husband who is sensitive to what you are going through, and is doing everything in his power to let you know that he's right there with you. That's so awesome. You have a fabulous husband :)

Um, when he COMES HOME it's too long.

I keep telling you... this is not an abnormal reaction... I don't know a soul who would not be "grieving" as you are...

(now, if you stop taking showers, quit your job, and put the phone on perma-voicemail, we're gonna have to talk)

I think you're very normal to feel the way you do; Mick is truly a wonderful guy to remember you and call you.

Just remember he loves you and is thinking of you and wrap yourself in that knowledge. It's something warm and wonderful.
