A Little Thing - Means A Lot
I'm slicing with the Two Writing Teachers community today. It's always good to read what everyone shares. Thank you Stacey, Tara, Anna, Betsy, Dana, Kathleen, Beth, and Deb
One part of my life that continues is keeping my husband close in my heart, remembering all those fun things that made our marriage so good. When one has a personal loss, the big things missing are important, but it's the little things that return again and again that bring sadness back. My husband and I had started quite a few little traditions through our long marriage of 48 years, and one of them was to greet "firsts" every single time with celebration, sometimes a hug, sometimes going out to enjoy a meal, sometimes just to see who would give the greeting first: first of the month, first day of summer or another season, first dandelion, first day without a coat, serious and silly, special to us. I miss that a lot, and still speak the greetings to him, just miss the fun of greetings back.
So today, I wish you all Happy First of December, whatever joy it may bring to you, first winter's full moon walk, a child's first holiday, first rabbit print in the snow, first day of vacation!
