Oh Janet - I wish I lived near you! I LOVE to garden - I keep thinking if spring would only come and I could get out and work in the flower gardens, it would be very therapeutic. I would love to work in your gardens and straighten them out for you! A spring flower catalogue came in the mail this week and I was poring over it. Naybe when some time has gone by, you will get some pleasure out of working out there in "his" gardens - it will remind you of all the good things about your husband - it is way too soon I think, now.
I know when Butch 1st passed away, his golf clubs in the garage almost killed me - everytime I climbed out of the car and my eye fell on them - I started crying. Now, however, when I see them , I smile, thinking of all the enjoyment he got out of golfing, and the good times I had, golfing with him. I still cry sometimes, too, but I do remember the good times so much more than at first, when all those bad memories - of him being sick and everything, were crowding into my mind all the time.
The people who post on this board are really from all over, aren't we? When Pauline, Sue, Darla and I started that thread we post on, months ago, we said we would love to meet for coffee (and a cry) sometime. To meet in the middle of all us us, we decided we would have to meet in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! I would love to be able to spend some time with you now, to give you a big hug, and weed your flower beds!
Love - Joyce
