For the first time in 43 years, I am facing life alone. My dear, sweet, love of my life, Murray, died from Covid on January 7. I am still having a hard time believing that he is physically gone from my life. His chair sits empty; my heart is breaking. But life moves on and I will carry on.
I am extremely fortunate and blessed in so many ways. The outpouring of overwhelming love and support from family and friends has helped sustain me during this incredibly difficult time and has helped me to move forward.
With lots of help and support, I will continue to plant flowers and pumpkins. Murray would have wanted me to do so. The seeds have been purchased and plans are in the works. This past Sunday afternoon I worked outside for three hours tilling the first flowerbed to be planted and will start planting as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer. Right now it is snowing!!!!
I am looking forward to bringing the flower cart out, filling it with beautiful bouquets of flowers, and maybe being outside to say hi when you stop by.
Until next time,
