I love my life and I am very happy, but I still miss him. We were married for less than five years. He has been gone for more than ten. Today we will leave an American flag at his headstone to honor the most patriotic man I have ever known.
I may shed a tear or two, but mostly I will enjoy my day with his children plus the two wonderful kiddos I have added since he died. Being happy and enjoying my life doesn't mean I don't miss him with all of my heart. It does mean that I live in the land of the living and look forward instead of backward most of the time.
