I count my blessings every day. Michael did a great job raising Seth and leaving me with a great child. I tell Seth all of the time “You are a great kid!”
My son is kind, considerate, well mannered, a good student and a great friend.
There is not a doubt in my mind that Michael was my soulmate. We had a scar in the same place on the same hand, our birthdays were 1 day apart, he always said that God did that on purpose so that he would never forget my birthday, our front teeth even crossed over the same way.
This past Monday marked the 6 week anniversary of Michael’s passing. It truly is a minute by minute these days, one minute I’m ok and the next minute I am not. Each day we try instill a little bit of normalcy.
This blog is to honor and celebrate the life of an amazing individual. If you are reading this you know what a wonderful person Michael was.
Today would have been my 25th wedding anniversary. I feel jipped in so many ways!!! I didn’t ask to be here. I didn’t request to be a widow. As a matter of fact, I played by all of the rules, love honor and cherish, especially the “in sickness and in health” line. I loved my husband more than words can ever say.
Earlier this year I attended a high school concert that my son was in. While we were waiting for the event to start, I struck up a conversation with one of the moms that I had met during tennis season earlier this year. We chatted about the boy’s success with their school year and about how much we missed tennis and the families that were involved.
Last month we performed a makeover at Tony Sacco’s in Mishawaka, Indiana. Michael had an early meeting, so I dropped him off and went to work on some of my writing material.
"The Hello Gorgeous retreat for 2016 was my first experience in being a part of this event.
The journey of life takes us in so many directions. How we interpret and act on these adventures defines us.
