Today My Husband Turns 40

11

Today is March 11th! Today my husband would have been 40 years old. I am so grateful that I was blessed to be his wife for 13 of those years. As I did the day of his funeral I will do my best to celebrate his memory, his spirit and his legacy. He rents space in my soul…so I may not have a choice:)

Did I ever imagine that my strong athletic husband would fall ill one day and 18 months be left a single mother with 3 kids? Of course not!

However, I am so incredibly grateful that I was able to say goodbye, love him and shower him with kisses, pray over him, play beautiful healing music as I held hand as I waited for that final breath. And for those of you that don’t know the story…he took (what was supposed to be) his final breath when my back was turned. I then turned around and whispered that I needed one more breath because I needed to see him make the transition to heaven. Upon my request he puckered his lips and exhaled the longest sweetest breath. I saw, heard and felt that final breath. That miracle will forever be the greatest gift anyone has ever and will ever give to me.

We never know when our time will come, so my dear friends try your best to LOVE fearlessly without conditions and with all of your heart! A long life is not guaranteed. Every day is a miracle.

In honor of my husband and the beautiful legacy he left behind – LOVE is the message today!
