Chris's 78th Birthday.

It's not a happy day in my world with you gone forever but I spent a long time with you and wish it could have been longer. I guess you're not suppose to have birthdays after you're gone but you would have been 78 today. I don’t think you could ever know how much I miss you especially on you birthday. I wish more than anything that we could be together again to celebrate your day. We always went to dinner at a nice restarunt and I let the waitresses know it was your birthday and got in trouble.

"No more” is the saddest thought of all, and I"m sure you know what I mean. I find that even in death their birthday still belongs to them; there’s no such thing as “no more,” as long as I'm here on earth to remember her.

A misconception among some holding on to our loved ones keeps us stuck, but the truth is, continuing our relationships with people after they’ve died and learning to love them despite their physical absence is good.  

My lady's birthday is set aside as a day for me to honor and celebrate her even though she isn't here now, the day can still belong to her with an appreciation for having her in my life with a focus on feeling grateful for my relationship with her.
