This I Will Remember

Two and 1/2 years ago I lost my best friend, my lover, my confident, my husband, to death.

I have come a long way in 2 1/2 years. I have changed. I have made changes. I have dealt with the worst thing that could possibly happen. I lost the love of my life. My partner. My friend.

Many years ago, on a wedding anniversary, TBHITW gave me a limited print as a gift. It is an image of two hands touching... just the finger tips.. reaching out.

It reads:

"This I will remember when the rest of life is through.. the finest thing I ever did was simply loving you."

This print hangs on my bedroom wall. I read it every morning. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I smile. Most times I know this is true.

Just saying.


  1. You certainly didn't know at that time how much that limited print would mean to you. ((HUGS))

  2. Awww, Linda. It's still heart-breaking isn't it? What a beautiful gift your hubby gave you - so fitting. Simple, yet profound....
    I'm just a month ahead of you - still crying too. Life does go on and I've make progress, but the hole left by his absence is still there.
    Sending hugs,

  3. It is definitely true! Sending you hope and hugs.

  4. Simply desire to say your article is as astounding.

  6. Something brought me by your blog today...it has been so long since I have read blogs from before we adopted. I was thinking about you and wondering how you have been. You are an amazing woman :)

  8. Beautiful. I wish I could see the print...

  9. if it’s in my case, I would feel and act the same way like you do. But be strong, I know he’s watching you all day 24/7. He may not be physically present but I know his love will always be there reaching out to you. Have a nice day!
