These are his boots that sat by my bed for months and months after his accident. I put them away and he died a month later.
They comforted me..seeing them sit by the bed. A constant reminder of him.
I remember seeing him put them on in the mornings..And many times, after coming home from a long hot day at work, I would take them off for him.
I considered it an honor to take his shoes off. He would smile at me, a grateful tired smile.. and say, "How did I get so lucky?"
I would say, "I'm the lucky one."
I always felt lucky to have him..Blessed. Even through the hard times.
I am having a hard time right now because the anniversary of his accident is coming up.
I am going to get to every one's comments over the next few days. Be patient with me..I have not forgotten you, I just haven't been on the computer much.
I do appreciate everyone who has left me comments..
Tonight's song, Summer Breeze by Seals and Croft
1st video, 2nd clip
This was one of our favorite songs..John couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, but he loved to sing. He would often ask me if I minded if he sang.
I told him I didn't mind at all.. I loved hearing him sing..
