15 Things I Miss About My Husband
Don’t get me wrong, I have a satisfying interesting life and am making the most of it, just like my husband would have wanted.
But some days I really feel his absence. It is all the little things he did for me that seem so difficult to do without:
I miss that special look in his eyes meant only for me.
I miss lying in bed next to him bumper to bumper.
I miss his dimpled smile that always adorned his face.
I miss his positive attitude constantly assuring me that everything would turn out okay no matter what.
I miss his physical presence.
I miss his shoulder to cry on when something didn’t go right.
I miss having him to go out to eat with and to hang around Barnes and Noble with on Friday nights.
I miss the red roses he bought me on all occasions.
I miss his willingness to run down to the store in the evening to pick up a prescription that I was too busy to get during the day and was too tired at night.
I miss the beautiful cards he always bought me that took him forever to pick out until he found just the right one.
I miss his encouragement in all of my endeavors especially my books. I don’t think I ever would have published even one without his reassurance.
I miss the way he kept several of my books in his car and talked everyone he met into buying one or sometimes more.
I miss his calls at supper time telling me he was on the way home.
I miss his pushing me to do things out of my comfort zone that turned out to be some of best funnest things I’ve done.
I miss going on rides in the country and just taking off for the afternoon with him.
When some had been your life for 50 years, the feeling that a part of you is missing just never seems to go away completely. Even after almost 4 years, I still miss him a lot.
