Anyways, the other day a sweet lady named Jill gave me a book of quotes, called In Loving Memory. There were some beautiful ones.. but a couple stuck out to me and I wanted to share them because I loved them.
If I should ever leave you whom I love
To go along the Silent way, grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were beside you there...
And when you hear a son or see a bird
I loved, Please do no let the thought of me
Be sad... For I am loving you just as
I always have.. You were so good to me!
There are so many things I wanted still
To do- So many things to say to you...
Remember that I did not fear- It was
Just leaving you that was so hard to face..
We cannot see beyond.. but this I know:
I loved you so-'twas heaven here with you.
- Isla Paschal Richardson
This one is my favorite:
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when
we can soar together again,
both aware of each other
Until then, live your life to
its fullest and when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
I WILL BE THERE.
- Emily Dickinson
I imagine that day often of how excited I will be.. the butterflies that will come back to me when I see him standing there with that smile on his face. How I will start running.. and that old me will be complete again, in his arms. I miss my sweet husband more than words can say. I love my CJ. Always have, always will.
