Today is my parents anniversary...58th!

It is a bittersweet day this year. The first that my mother isn't here to share it with my father. The first day in 58 years that my dad woke up on this day without my mom by his side.

My heart is heavy. My heart is full. I cried in the Hallmark store looking for a card. I thought it important to send one to my dad but it's very hard to find one that doesn't mention "all the rest of your lives together". Finally found one that celebrated their incredible love and didn't remind you (in the text) that there would be more time for them to be together.

So, today, love the one you're with. Love the ones that you share your life with. Love yourself and make the love you have in your heart meaningful to those around you.

Love lasts. My parents love was/is the strongest love I've ever seen. I thank them for sharing it with me.

You are always so eloquent Peggy. I know your mom is smiling down on you and your dad. God Bless them.
Love to you, D
