Happy Anniversary, Steve

Today would have been my 30th wedding anniversary.  Steve and I were planning a special trip for this milestone.  He was always the one for grand adventures.  He broadened and expanded my life in so many ways.  Travel was just one of them. 

We were just kids when we married… broke…with minimum wage jobs…living on love.  But we knew it wouldn’t always be like this.  We had dreams.  Steve had the vision and I took care of details.  He was a risk taker and I was cautious.  He was so smart and I was organized.  Like Rocky and Adrian…we filled gaps. 

Today, I feel that gaping hole that his death left behind.  Despite knowing how our life together ended, I would live it all over again…the good, the bad, the breathtaking.  The person I am today was shaped and molded by a man that loved me more than life.  I like who I am because of him.

Dr. Seuss got it right "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

I’m smiling, Steve.  Happy anniversary.
