Imaginary Valentine

When I can't sleep, which is getting to be more and more common, I read the stories that Suzy had scattered all over the web.  I came across this one tonight and it really kicked me in the guts.

Do you believe in angels?  I do.  My Suzy is one, I’m sure. 

In spite of her “colorful” language, fiery temper and her rather “snarky” way with words, she may well have always been one. 

That’s the only way I can explain how she still looks ouRead full post »

The Best Mother In The World

The best mother in the world wasn’t really mine, but she would never admit that. 

She was always there for “Her” girls.  She was one of those touchy-feely kind of mothers that showed her love, not just with words, but with her touch. 

You know what IRead full post »

Just Another Day Without Her

I actually thought that I was doing better.  Then this song came on the radio and I just started blubbering.  Fuck I miss her.

And that last kiss I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes it harder
I wish I could remember

But I keep your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling,

GNS: Family / Her Diamonds

 

My sister-in-law left about an hour ago.  She's as close to family as we have.  The girls love it when their "Antee" visits and I think it does them good to be cuddled and fawned over by "family".  I try to do the "cuddle/fawn thing", but it must be somethingRead full post »

Tears

Today, I think I finally realized that Suzy is never going to be with me again. 

This morning, I used some of the anger I've been feeling to make myself finally start to clean out her closet.  I started with her shoes and didn't make it any farther.  I pickedRead full post »
