Hello my friends, I am writing my blog early today as Terry will be visiting and we are going to a movie tonight, by the time we chat it will be too late to blog.
It is already sunny and warm so I know we are going to have a beautiful day and I am really looking forward to it.
As you all know I am a widow but today would of been my husband's birthday. Oh how I miss him, he use to tease me as his birthday fell 3 weeks after mine. He always reminded me I was older than he was. We met in Grade 10 and were only 15 years old. He was in the same home room as my best friend and when we first met I didn't think anything special about him except I thought he was cute, but he told my friend he had just met the girl he was going to marry. My best friend and I rolled on the snow banks laughing all the way home from school because of this guy saying he was going to marry me. Well guess who got the last laugh, and if you had known him you would realize he often got the last laugh. He was so handsome but then I feel we all think our husbands' are handsome, but mine really was. LOL. He was 6'1" and I am 5'2" so I'm sure we looked like Mutt and Jeff, but the height difference didn't bother either of us. We grew up together, learned together and loved together. He could fix or build anything and it's only now I realize I took all the wonderful things he did for granted. If anything happened I knew Woody would make it all right and he did. He was a wonderful husband and father. I was so blessed to be his wife and am so thankful that when he passed at only 42 we had been together 27 and 1/2 of those years. I was devastated when Woody died, it was hard for me even to breathe and at times I didn't even want too. I have since realized it was his death that taught me how to live and his love carried me on to become a better person than I ever thought I could be. Oh yes losing Woody was one of the darkest times of my life but now, looking back I am just so proud and happy thinking of all those wonderful years and the beautiful times we had together. Woody took care of me in life and continues to do so since his death. Yes, things could of maybe even should of been different but they are what they are. Times have changed, I have changed but I like to think that Woody would still love the person I have become. And like Garth Brooks says, I could of missed the pain but I would of had to missed the dance. I'm glad we danced together Woody, until we meet again, Happy Birthday.
Okay now I am off to shower and go to Curves before Terry arrives. Have a great day my friends and as always......God Bless.......:-) Hugs
