Two years in heaven.

Two years ago, I was convinced that I could never mention your name without falling apart. I was convinced that the heavy weight on my chest would never fade away. Now I know these are the moments when I’ve mostly felt the miracles and magic in my life, mostly the pouring support and love of friends.
Grandpa, I miss your sweet voice calling out my name so I could turn the music up and that little wave you did from under the sheets when I thought you couldn’t handle another hospital stay. I miss your serious toned lectures that always ended as a joke or a song. I miss the sound of your footsteps scrunching on the grass while you checked your garden. Now, my love, I’d like to tell you that your strength and willpower have been my inspiration since you left this world. I am blessed to be able to write through all the grief and the pain. And I’m certain that my world wouldn’t be complete without your sweet and gentle presence in my universe. I will always love you.

    This was a wonderful and heart warming tribute and a true show of strength. As long as you keep him in your heart, he is always with you and the memories you carry will never cease to exist. That is the energy of your love for him and energy never dies. A beautiful post for the Angel looking down on you.🌹🌹

        Never hesitate your feelings lovely, your feelings are never wrong. Never be afraid to show them and never apologize for them. It’s hard to talk about but once you open up about it, you’ll find it gets easier and it feels better.🌹❤️

        You’re very welcome. 🙂 I’ve learned when we do the things we thought we could never do, we find it easier to do more things we thought we could never do. This is just another way of healing and you’ve done something great with this post. 😊💖
