Two Years Past


Two Years Past


Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. Aristotle

We are taking a break from the thesis project today to remember a significant day in our life. For as long as I live, I know March 9th is going to come around every year. Significant in the sense that I will always remember March 9th as being the day that Richard made his life transition. Together as one, our lives changed forever on that day in 2014.

Sure, the pain of losing him has gotten softer, but that doesn't mean that I don't miss him quite a bit. The love we shared is still strong. I don't want the day to go unnoticed, but I don't want to belabor the point either. Finding that gentle balance when you lose the love of your life takes time. Getting over it means something different to each one of us. We don't really get over it, we adjust to it and move on as best we can. The love we shared is still strong in my heart and always present in my life.

I'm not sure what I will do when March 9th rolls around next year, but what I do know for sure is that my faith tells me that I will see him again, my mind tells me that he is forever pain free and my heart tells me that he is standing right behind me.

Enjoy some of our favorite photo's from our eleven years together.

Your last words says it all \"Never miss the chance to tell your loved ones that you love them\". More people need do this. It is important because you or they could be gone in minutes, hours, or days. Love the pictures too. You can tell you loved each other. Some people never have that kind of love. You are so fortunate to have that for your memories. God Bless..........


Chris, thank you for sharing your thoughts. You words so obviously convey your deep love for Richard and he is forever in your heart. I cannot imagine losing my spouse/soulmate, but you sharing your journey, has made it feel possible to survive such a deep loss.


Thanks for sharing this, Chris.


Chris, such positive thoughts on this transition in our lives. We do move forward, grieving and healing at our own pace. I can only echo your final words. \"Never miss out on a chance to tell that special person in your life that you love them!\"
