Valentines Day ApproachesFebruary 10th, 2010 at 7:08
Dearest Beloved Friends and Family,
My Vanlentines Day without Bobbi approaches. I confess I have been dreading this, but then I remember she is still in my heart. When I think of that, every day is Valentines Day. What a couple of years, eh? I move through this period and hope that clarity of thought will return (and if it does I pray it remains).
I used to wish for two lives- one to learn from and one to “do-over” and get it right. Now, I am becoming content with this one life. Of course, I hope it’s obvious the honor and joy I feel at the knowledge of Bobbi’s love for me. I sometimes forget and must remind myself of the honor and joy at having you all in my life. I have always been blessed with the greatest of friends, and an “interesting” family all of whom I love so dearly. How much greater the blessing that my beloved Bobbi increased my wealth many-fold. All my new (25 years new) family and friends….. beloved Kim and her children, Donna and Gale, my “other” mother and father, and all my brothers and sisters and cousins and aunts and uncles….. And all of my friends who I include as family, all my scouting brothers and sisters, and AISA and Rotary and Fire and EMS. I want you to know I thank God for you all.
The one year anniversary of Bobbi’s death approaches, but I am finding some peace with it. The sorrow is not defeated by the love and joy, and I remain the richest man I know.
I’ll keep you posted
