I’ve needed my runs more and more. In some ways, my emotional state is getting better, and in other ways it is getting much harder to get through the days than in the beginning. But in general, my runs have been going well. It’s the finishes that have been tough. Today was no exception.
I ran along, thinking of the day and the importance that it has had for Tom and I for the past 21 years. “Good Friday” marks the date when Tom and I first kissed. In many ways, Good Friday has been more of an anniversary for us than our wedding anniversary.
This day couldn’t come and go without my remembering what made it special for the past 21 years. LOVE. I ran along thinking of that day on the beach and the uneasy feeling that precedes that first kiss. This was the beginning of the good memories. As I finished off the run, I remembered the last kiss. It’s hard to believe that his life is over.
