live like you are dying
I lost my husband and best friend, the love of my life. He made me laugh and cry and I didn't tell him enough how much I loved him.
He had heart disease in his family, and did not take very good care of himself in his younger years. He had a heart attack 12 years ago. It left him with alot of damage but did not take his spirit.
He went through many difficult situations, but always smiled, had a kind word for everyone and still played in a band even though he only had 25% of his heart working. He learned the song "live like you are dying" by Tim McGraw, and lived by it. He always encouraged others to do the same. I miss this man with all my heart, but I can smile becuase I know that is what he wanted. The reality is in my head, but not my heart. I have a long journey ahead of me, learning how to deal with the grief is a part of it, that I sometimes hate. I believe everyone has a unique story but the pain is universal. It has been 8 months, not a long time but it seems like a life time. The first are hard, thanksgiving, christmas, new years. so many that carry lots of tears
