Every time I sit and reflect in the moment, I wonder what it would be like to share a cup of coffee again, talk about Christmas get togethers and making plans, and then I realize the emptiness which can be painful and saddening. I think in that moment, what would he be saying to me; sometimes I chuckle because he'd tell me to get up and get a move on, plenty to do; other times I can feel his presence giving me comfort and support. For me it has been 29 years, but I can still pause and hear his words and know what he would say. And then my heart smiles, I smile, and I let the tear fall. I may not feel instantly better, but I am able to move forward with my day knowing that he is with me every step of the day.
