This is a day of the year that David and I always looked forward to. It meant spring to us more than the first daffadils or the warm weather. We always planned to go to an opening day at Turner Field, but never quite managed. ( take that as a whisper to do those "mean tos with your loved ones now).
Baseball held it's opening day today. I have the games on in the background. The Braves, our team, started last night and I sat, watched, and cheered by myself. I still talked to David during the game and afterward. It felt different without him next to me. We usually held hands and called the game before the commentators. We would joke that we should become the first husband/wife color commentary team. He taught me how to keep a score sheet. There were a few tears, but life is bittersweet. The Braves won and David is cheering in heaven.
