I know some might consider it silly to keep celebrating my anniversary even though Jim is in heaven but on this date I changed my name, committed my life to another and began a new family. That family still exists and I am dedicated to its survival.
I just cannot ignore a day that forever changed who I have become. And I am still here! And even though Jim lives in heaven he is still very much a part of our family.
I now wonder why Hallmark or some greeting card company doesn’t make a card for widows and widowers on their anniversary. They have them for every other day imaginable. Hmm perhaps that will be my next adventure! In the meantime I am having fun creating remembrances to celebrate just like we used to! This year I made a frame out of an old 33 record album and went to eat at Club 33 in Disneyland. And I am trying to figure out #34 next year – something in 3/4 time?
Happy Anniversary to me. I miss you Jim! Thanks for the many sweet memories! I loved being your wife!
