It didn’t even register that it would have been our eight-year wedding anniversary today, even after one sweet friend remembered, sent me a message. My mind checked out. I could not go there. I sat in bed catching up notes in my kung fu bible at bedtime when it finally hit me. I considered going right back to forgetting about it when I remembered this beautiful box I never look at, full of three cards for each holiday, love notes, sorry notes. Full of all the evidence that I am a good woman fiercely loved by a good man – watching, I am convinced, from Heaven, desperately hoping I will not do what is so easy to do in my loneliness and grief: Be not alone at any cost. And I pulled out the box, and let Walter’s prolific note- and card-writing do the job I bet it was meant to do, in this time God knew was coming. And Walter can rest in a job well done tonite. ‪#‎widowed‬ ‪#‎desertblossom‬‪#‎copyright2014narrowpathphotography‬ ‪#‎narrowpathphoto‬ ‪#‎love‬ ‪#‎soulmate‬‪#‎truelove‬ ‪#‎loveneverdies‬
