I have noticed that this site has been quiet, a new person posted and I clicked on the link.  It took me to their post, however, it appears to be Legacy Connect, the difference was, I noticed that Mary Jane responded and one other person Peter.  I did not received notices of either of their responses.  I did notice that the missing link was that this new discussion was not on Bereaved Spouses
Created by Steve Cain.  So not sure what is happening.

Sara ...  so happy that you do that on your anniversary.  I also do it Valentine's Day.  I'm sorry you can't go to his favorite place, but the backyard is just as good and all the memories for both of you were there.  Believe he is with you because he is.

Marsha.......I do the balloon thing on our wedding anniversary.  I started it the first anniversary after he passed from your suggestion.   I can't go to his favorite place however since that would be New England Dragway but I release it from our backyard and watch it sail to the heavens.

Hey there Mary Jane ...  No kicking up heels until Feb. 2nd because my b/d is on a Tuesday; people work and it's difficult to get together.  I did go out for a nice dinner with girlfriends and we did kick up our heels.  The waiter thought we were on Marijuana!  LOL  Lots of laughs and it sure felt good.

Hugs

Sara ...  I know just how you feel since Ken passed.  Grief is so strange and it seems the years go by quickly, but at the same time so slow when we live from day to day.  It will be 8 years since Ernie passed and I miss him every day, but the heartache is a little less.  May I suggest buying a helium balloon, printing love notes on it and going to Ken and your favorite place and let the balloon sail up to heaven.  I do that and it makes one feel better.  I like to think they are up there ready to catch that balloon.   Chin up my dear friend and I'm thinking of you.

Hugs

Marsha

Sara ,,,  Thank you so much for the belated b/d wishes.  I'm at that age where I kiss the ground I made it another year.  Older than dirt!  LOL  Don't feel it and people say I don't look it.  Good gene pool.  Because my birthday was on a Tuesday my girlfriends and I are kicking up our heels Feb. 2nd instead.  I'm for that!  LOL

So here it is, the eve of another dreaded anniversary.  Tomorrow, Jan 13th will be 3 years since Ken left this world.   I can't believe 3 years have already passed.  I think about him all day every day so it doesn't seem possible that much time has gone by but it also seems like forever.

Happy Belated Birthday Marsha!  I hope you have/had fun kicking up your heels.

Comment by Mary. Jane on January 11, 2019 at 10:22am

Happy belated, Marsha! Hope it was a fun day for you! We want full disclosure on you heel kicking on Monday. Lol

Comment by Marsha H on January 10, 2019 at 3:55pm

Dear DJ ...  Thanks for the birthday wishes.  I appreciate it and surprised you remembered.  Not celebrating until the weekend and then kicking up my heels if my legs will go that far!  LOL

Hugs

Marsha
