Today is a weird day for me.
When John died he was 67 years and 41 days old.
Today I am 67 years and 41 days old.
Tomorrow I will be on this planet longer than John was.
I can't explain why that feels strange to me but it does.
And I wish it weren't so.

John's Memorial Garden

Some of the cacti are blooming in John's Memorial Garden. They are so pretty. It's hard to believe the Garden is almost 4 years old already. I planted in honor of John's one year anniversary.

Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!

John and I had our church wedding today 27 years ago. Since we had already been married [by a JP] 7 years earlier, there wasn't as much nervousness associated with the day. We just enjoyed the heck out of it. We talked about that day with fondness for the rest of our life together. It was a great party. We were so happy.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, my Love!

St. Patrick's Day was our day. We had our first date on St. Patrick's Day 37 years ago. It was our own special day that we celebrated every year. Thank you for a wonderful life together, John.

Happy Bunkie Day, Sweetheart!

35 years ago today John moved in with me. It was a glorious happy day. He made dinner for us that night to celebrate. John was a good cook.
