Topic: Checking in
It's been a while since my last post and 7 months since my husband passed away. Just wanted to check in and let you all know that we are ok. Hard to believe it's been that long! The boys are keeping me busy, as well as work. Still have bouts of sadness that come unexpectedly. Boys barely talk about their dad, which surprises me. Sometimes I ask them a question or 2, but they never initiate that subject.
Now that it's warm, my 15 years old has to mow the lawn, which he is not happy about. I had reminded him that my responsibilities had widened as well and that's just the way it has to be.
Wanted to mention something unusual. During my husband' funeral back in October, I had white balloons for kids to write their wishes for their dad and release those in the air. Surprisingly, my youngest said he didn't want to do it and wanted to keep those balloons. Well, here is unusual part - both balloons are still inflated - 7 months later! Smaller, but still intact. Little miracle!
Just wanted to share this experience!
