Another year has gone by. Another year of holidays arequickly approaching and it’s time for another year that we will have to spendwithout you. I’m not sure if this time of year ever gets easier. I’m not sureif there ever becomes a time where I don’t get in a weird funk knowing thatthis time of year is coming.
Holidays used to be so different. They were full of life andthere was more to enjoy. We had some of the greatest traditions. You made everyholiday better.
Who am I kidding? You made everything in general better. Howmuch sweeter it was to spend this time of year with my favorite person ever,and my best friend.
So as another holiday season approaches, I am missing you. Iam missing you with every happy moment, along with every sad. So much continuesto change, but missing you, is one thing that continues to stay consistent.
I don’t think holidays will ever be the same without you. I can’timagine I will ever be able to find the same joy in these days.
But I will try. I will try for you because that is what youwould want. You didn’t want to leave. You didn’t want to leave us to celebratewithout you. You didn’t want to be away from the people you loved.
So I will celebrate you. I will honor you and I will doeverything possible to make sure everyone still remembers the joy and happinessyou brought to everything.
I will make sure nobody ever forgets the beautifulperson you were, both inside and out.
These days will never be the same without you, but I will domy best to keep you with me and use that to find the joy in today, tomorrow andall of the days to come.
I miss you. I love you. I wish you were here.
