Not an April Fool's Joke


Tuesday, April 01, 2014



Not my usual upbeat, creative blog today. It's a sad day for me.



For today would have been my brother's 65th birthday.



I miss you so much, Ralph!



It is such a sad birthday without you.



There's nothing to celebrate but old memories, and I feel so alone.



It's a birthday I celebrate with tears.



Happy Birthday, Ralph, though it's not happy without you.



This last pic says it all about how I feel right now:

    Those first few special occasions after you lose someone can be very difficult ... and, to be honest, I've found that they remain bittersweet even years later, but it does get to be a little easier with the years. The happy memories begin to outweigh the sad and lonely ones ... and sometimes, if you're very quiet you can almost hear your loved one walking the sunny pathways of your heart.

    Loving those we've lost is so hard. We have one last hug, kiss, smile and tear to share with them and and to receive from them but just can't reach each other.
Tell God about your love for Ralph and trust He will whisper it in Ralph's ear.

    My wife has the same feelings when her late brother's BD and passing date come around. Been over 22 years since he past, yet I think for her, it feels just like yesterday.

    (HUGS) Happy birthday to your brother - I know it is really difficult to move through birthdays and anniversaries and special occasions without our precious loved ones. I am sure he knows how much you love him and miss him.

I found myself in tears on my way home today too - Sunday would have been my son's 44th birthday and today is his cousin's 44th birthday and for some reason after nearly 8 years, the tears just ran down my face today. I suspect I too will not be my usual cheery self when I come to his b-day this weekend.
