Thirty-one years ago, today, I married my soulmate. The fact that we ever even met is a sign of God’s providence. We loved each other in good times and in bad and I have to say that the good times greatly outnumbered the bad.
135 weeks ago, my beloved left this world for eternity. There is not a day that goes by when she is not filling my thoughts. My longing to be with her is great, but I take great comfort in the fact that our separation is only temporary. To paraphrase King David, “She cannot come back to me, but someday I shall go to her.” It is the knowledge of this truth that gives me the strength to get up in the morning and make through just one more day. Life works best when taken one day at a time.
Cindy, my love, I wasn’t always the husband that you deserved, but I’m so grateful that we were together for the time that we had and I cannot wait until we’re together again. I love you and I miss you more than my words can say.
