Well, my friends, I have made it through the year of "Firsts". As of July 13th, one full year has passed since my Love passed away. I was able to survive my "First" night sleeping without him, my "First" morning alone, our "First" wedding anniversary apart,
our "First" Thanksgiving and Christmas apart, his birthday then mine and all the little "Firsts"in between.......all due to the love and care of dear friends and family.
I have survived ALL of the "Firsts"!!!
I actually feel a calming of my spirit, knowing that there will be no more "Firsts" waiting around the corner to devour me. I will forever love and miss my dear Russell, but when I sit with our children and reminisce, it will be with a bit of ease in my
heart. We will be able to smile and laugh about his silliness, his kindness, his love and his infectious grin.
BRING IT ON "SECONDS", YOU AIN'T GOT NUTHIN!!!!!!!
