"Lifelong commitment is not what everyone thinks it is. It's not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It's not a clean home and a homemade meal every day.
It's someone who steals all the covers or snores like a chainsaw. It's sometimes slammed doors, and a few harsh words, disagreeing, and the silent treatment until your hearts heal. Then...forgiveness!

It's messages like these that make the days a little easier to get through. I can't believe that tomorrow I will have lived without Josh for 10 months. On most days it honestly seems like 10 days.

If you know someone who has lost a very important person in their life and you're afraid to mention them because you think you may make them sad by reminding them that they died- you're not reminding them, they didn't forget. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived. And that is a great, great gift.
Thank you so much for the bracelet! I live by both sayings and will wear it with pride! I still can't figure out why I survived when so many others didn't, my warrior spirit I guess. Joshpowellfoundation.org there needs to be so much more research about Synovial Sarcoma!!!
