CM, my mantra when I am feeling down about Teddy is, "Shame on me, I got to have for 16 years what most people never have in a lifetime". That always seems to clear my hear for awhile.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
CM, They do want us to live life to the fullest, so I think we need to do that for our wonderful husbands. It will take time but we will get there.
Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
