Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for everyone who has a “some one” to spend Valentines Day with…really.
I sent out a few Valentines today…got a couple of wonderful remembrance’s too.
But I’m hear to tell you all, that it’s still a tough day on the calendar and in my heart.
Sitting next to the computer are pictures of Leroy. He’s standing at the bow of a sailboat in the Pacific off of Maui. He’s sitting on the couch reading one of his favorite books. He’s posing with me and Goofy and Mickey at Disneyland, the place where we had our official first date.
And then there’s one of those little florist cards, that always came with roses on Valentine’s Day, where he wrote, “I Love You Terribly”..Leroy. The roses are long gone, except for one from each year that I saved and have in a vase upstairs. The petals might be dry and brittle, but the memories are everlasting.
So I’m wishing you all enjoy a Happy Valentine’s Day, but you’ll excuse me while I quietly dodge this day.
