Every holiday we go to Adam's grave. I couldn't bear to not be beside him as we would have been in life. Next Sept. it will be 10 years for us and I was thinking how can those many years have slipped by and then you mentioned 17. It truly is unfathomable that we live this long with our broken hearts. You hear of people dying because of broken hearts and yet we the living just are dying inside.
I am trying to make it a goal of mine to be happy in the current moment. I am so tried of being sad and being an observer to all around me. I don't know if that is at all possible but I hope it is.
However you all spent your Thanksgiving, alone, with others, I hope that at least in some small way that you were able to be mindful of the blessings that you do still have in life.
