As many of you know.. the months of december and january where ... well just totally sucked the life out of me..
A total void of any celebrations
No Christmas, No New Year, No Birthday Celebrations.
We never got to exchange any gifts at all.. he was just to ill... so the gifts have sat in boxes, now moved into a spare bedroom
All of the Gifts sat unopened
How could I EVER want to celebrate anything.. now
Over the weekend, at the urging of my daughter.. she repeatedly said .. mom, why don't you open the Christmas Gift that daddy picked out for you.
I simply couldn't.. the memories of the past few months are still too painful..
Fast forward to Today is Valentine's day..
I am Still broken hearted..
But as I awoke today.. I realized that I will be OK, I have my memories..
Again today, my daughter urged me to open his gift... he picked it out just for you..
So when I got home from work this evening, after feeding the puppy dogs.. I went into the bedroom .. picked out the two gifts so perfectly wrapped.
And there it was.. the gift that he bought for me
He bought me an iPad.. and had a loving message imprinted on the one side of the iPad
He must have heard me say something along the way.. that I thought they were so cool...
So in fact, this was the last gift my husband selected and bought for me.
I couldn't think of better way to spend my valentine day, but by opening a loving gift, with a loving message written by him..
Hugs to all
