There are the good memories…. and some that hurt

December 1, 2020

Fifty five years ago on December 2nd, 1964 I was married, and other than a brief separation, we remained married for twenty nine years until the day she left us. I am absolutely positive if Terry had remained alive you would never be reading my blog, because she would have never moved to Alaska which resulted in me writing these words.

Like most married couples life’s road for each marriage though different is quite similar in that it is a journey of high and low points, and when I think about my life with Terry I do feel quite a bit of pain. Though the pain is self inflicted by an immature man who sometimes tripped over his own failings on their road of life together. Today I lament those failings and though I can not do anything about them every day I do ask her for forgiveness.


Weather she hears

my words or prayers

I do not know

I can only

    Feeling that sense of loss means you had something to lose. That’s a good thing.

    I bet she was the kind if person who would like you to focus on the good times, the fun times

    It’s your choice. Choose what you know would please her!!

    I don’t know if Mom can hear your words or prayers BUT I guarantee you that Mom knew how much you truly loved her no matter any of the ups or downs.
    And I guarantee you that she truly loved you no matter the ups or downs.
    And I do believe at the end she was very much aware of the pain you carried and she also knew that you would have to carry that pain until you met each other again. I believe having to carry that pain for such a long time has in turn made you a better father, friend and grandfather . But what do I know????
    love you.

      You told me my words moved you,
      and now today I sit here
      reading your words through tear filled eyes.

        Sorry I hope they were not sad or mad tears. I didn’t mean for them to be.
        Live you Tricia
