On this day, Thursday, November 20, 2014, I have lived more days than Robb.
And it's weird and sobering to know that on the timeline of his days, he died on this one.
I feel maybe even a little bit disloyal, that I should take more of this pie of life than he did.
I guess what I realize most is how unbearably young he was. And how he didn't see it coming.
I wish I had more words for this, but I just don't have any. I just feel the date looming, and I think to myself, "and so it is."
Ok, bigger slice, some days more than the fork can handle.... but in your pie metaphor, I see yours and his chock full of filling, unlike so many who live long with a big pie & half empty crust. Nibble when the days loom too big, then when you can, grab your napkin & dig right in. (The napkin's for those times when the filling overflows.)
The prayers of many remain with you this season.
A day of thankfulness for your life and the life you shared with Robb...so short a time it was. I pray your heart finds light in this darkness and that memories bond the preciousness of the life you shared together. Even as you remember those things, may this day that commemorates *your* birth day be one of joy to you and those who surround you.
