Just one more time?
« on: January 02, 2011, 09:48:08 PM »
Every year for 25 years I would spend about an hour in the weeks prior to Christmas addressing Christmas cards to family and friends.  And every year I always signed those cards from both my husband and myself.   

This year as the appointed time approached, I realized that I was no longer part of a couple and that never again would I ever have the occassion to put our two names together.  Of course I cried, and I hurt and I grieved some more.   But the truth is I would like to see our names together again.  I know many of you would too.  So for just one more time................

Eddie and Julie  (looks nice seeing it again)

I understand. I still sign my childrens names on all cards to friend's and family. I probably always will. They existed and they continue to, in my heart. They touched many lives as I'm sure Eddie did. Always follow your heart!

My Love,

Hello Juls ~

If it makes you feel good to write your names together, then why not.....although Eddie is passed on, I am sure he echos the good tiding you are sending via Christmas card.

I know what you mean. It felt so odd to sign cards from me alone this season.
