I woke with a start at 330 this morning. Somehow my body knew before my brain could fully comprehend. Today is the anniversary of my severing. An Amputation. Today marked the ‘death’ in ‘to death do us part’. Five years ago today I held him as he entered eternity. I cried as I let the machines be turned off, one by one.
And now I carry so much of my twenty-five years with him wrapped around every cell of my body. A Day never passes without a thought of him. Everything was changed from this moment forward. And I began again that day. Rising from the ashes. Discovering. Becoming. Transforming. Embracing. Releasing. I will never be the same.
This man is a large part of who I am today.
