This is the first anniversary that we have been apart. I don't get to celebrate today with Daniel, but I am so lucky that he left me with so many amazing memories to keep with me. When I look forward and think of his absence, that is when the tears come. But whenever I look back and think of my time with him, it is nothing but laughter. Daniel made me feel special every day and I did my best to make sure he knew every day how much he was loved. He was an incredible man who was loyal, kind-hearted, wicked smart, opinionated, funny, stubborn, mischievous, warm, compassionate, and loving. I was amazingly fortunate to have been chosen by this man to share a life with him.
Well meaning people tell me that I am young and will find someone else or that Daniel wouldn't want me to be alone for the rest of my life. What they don't understand is that, in my heart I am still a Mrs. I am not a single person, looking for a match. I am someone who was blessed to find the one for me and have already given my heart away. I am one half of a perfectly matched pair. I have a husband. He is just away at the moment, and when I am in his arms again, I will be back home.
I love you Daniel. Happy Anniversary.
