Yesterday my sister Jade had to say goodbye to her fiancé as she makes her way overseas. I remember how painful that day was for me, when I did the same with Johnny. And even though they say the place she is going is “safe,” I still worry. I’ve heard that bullshit line a million times. I pray they aren’t stripped of all the beautiful things that are to come, as they start their lives together next year. Johnny would always pout if I said “goodbye” because goodbyes are forever. So I won’t say goodbye, but instead see you “later”. You better come back home to your wife… Be safe out there, Heather! #semperfortis 👭💌💍🌊✈️⚓️🇺🇸 @cali1005 @hn_griffin
Bebe! Can you believe it? I can’t believe the day has come. Well, wait. It never really will come. But I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I became your wife! The happiest and most magical day of my life. It seems like just yesterday and 100 years ago all at once. I remember how scared I was because you were leaving for a year. I kept thinking…our first year of marriage, our foundation…it will be so tough being apart! How will we do this!? A year used to be such a long time. I wish that was all this was. I never would have imagined that instead, our first wedding anniversary would be spent at your grave. Or that 2 months and 5 days after you promised me forever I would have to endure the news of your death and the pain that stays with me everyday. I never even fathomed what the year held for us, because all I had in my heart was hope and love. What happened to the 100 years you promised me? The kisses-whenever-I-want and the smile I couldn’t wipe off that handsome face of yours? How could God have possibly needed you more than I do babe? My heart will always ache for you. There are so many things I wanted that I can never give you now. I will never understand or accept this fate but I am so thankful that we made enough memories and shared such a rare love because those are the things that will last me until my dying day. Anyway, happy one year wedding anniversary honeybee. Thank you for making me the happiest woman in the world and for giving me undying and unconditional love that I will carry for eternity. I promise that I will find my way back to you. And we will be whole again once more. See you on the other side, my sweet handsome love…I love you forever and more.
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies
Staring at the ceiling in the dark Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
‘Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep ☔️☔️☔️☔️
A gift denied to many.
If I live another 4 months and 24 days I will be older than my husband.
To be older than him.
To grow and live and learn… Without him.
Johnny’s little brother, Noah, came up to me and said “you know they still have birthdays in heaven right?”
They sure do baby. They sure do.
It’s my birthday.. Imma cry if I want to. 👵👴💔
Happy birthday to the other half of my egg, jade. @cali1005
Thank you for all the birthday wishes.
