My better half.....


Wow, can you believe it a new post already! Ok I think I am driving my daughter and husband crazy asking questions and asking for help, but hey.... like I always tell them its about me! (yes I know, it is good to live in my dream world sometimes)
Anyways, I had my hunny (still trying to decide on the cute blog name for him) show me where he (hides) stores all our pics and (ssshh) I found one of him! He is probably gonna hurt me later but que sera, sera....I always say lol
You know, I wanted to do a Fathers Day tribute for my husband and my dad, but we just lost my dad this March 14th and his birthday is today June 22, so it is still a lil too fresh for me. I will need my hunnys help and probaby Dawns too :) to do my dads tribute, it might be a lil late but I will get to it. I just need my heart to rest a lil bit more.
So for now Chris, my heart, this is for you.....
From the first day I saw you walking across the campus in high school, not even knowing your name,
I knew....
From the first time you made me laugh so hard I cried,
I knew....
From the first time you asked me to marry you, (and there were a few times)
I knew....
From the first breath and cry of each of our daughters,
I knew....
From watching you kiss their first booboos after all their awkward firsts,
I knew....
After watching you holding your own meeting your daughters first boyfriends,
I knew.....
After hearing you sing to your daughters, when you think no one is listening,
I knew.....
After watching you care for my father on his last days as if he were your own and never complaing no matter how exhausted you were,
I knew.....
After hearing the promises you made to my father, when I didn't trust myself or anyone else to keep them,
I knew.....
When we kissed him good bye and all walked away, you stayed behind, like you promised, never leaving him alone, until he was ready, closing his eyes and going to sleep forever more , it was then that I remembered what I sometimes forget and once again,
I knew.....I loved you always
Even before I met you or even knew your name,
I knew.....I loved you.

And for our dad "Sonny", Happy Birthday!! My stars how we miss you!

Hi Rose! Thanks for visiting my blog, and the warm congrats on my (our) Anniversary!
Congrats on taking the plunge and joining Blogland! I started about a year ago (with much fear and trepidation)and have really enjoyed it!
Isn't Dawn THE BEST?! You picked a wonderful gal to help and encourage you along the way..she has done the same for me!

You are off to a great start with your blog...you are a wonderful writer--this post had me in tears! It's so heart-warming to hear of a love story still going strong after 20+ years!
I am so sorry for the loss of your father..my mom passed away 17 years ago and many times I miss her so much I can't breathe..My dad's 87 and I cherish the times I have with him.

Well, just wanted to pop in and say hi. So happy to meet you! I'll be back!!
Blessings,
Myrna

I'm so glad to see you taking your first "steps". I have "met" so many wonderful women through blogging...it truly is a beautiful and inspiring place. I do believe your off to a wonderful start...your post was beautifully written and brought tears to my eyes...my Dad passed away (too young) 2 years ago...and I miss him terribly still. I also wanted to let you know that I'll be adding your blog to my inspiring blogs list and will also write a post to introduce you to my readers...I think they'll love your blog.
