It's the little things

Something that stands out to me about the time Joe was gone and I was alone.

Of course I missed all the regular things one misses when your partner, lover, spouse is not there. Meal times, sleeping together, listing to them breathe at night...(read snore, LOL) The smell of coffee freshly made in the morning as you wake up. Those are the kinds of things you expect to miss.

But it is the little things that surprise you.


Everyday when I got in the shower I was reminded Joe was not there because the shower head didn't need to be adjusted.

He likes one type of spray and I like another so normally when each of us showers we have to switch it to our preference.

It never needed adjusting. I was reminded every time I took a shower.................he wasn't there. And I missed him.

Dear Nancy,
Sorry I wasn't ablet to talk with you the other night since I was on the phone with Mary. You sounded very good and I'm glad you enjoyed your flowers and that you could talk with Jenilee.

YES, it's the little things that a person misses when someone is away and it made me think about Dallas now that he works in Orlando.

Jenilee graduates Saturday at 9:00 a.m. (Dec. 15) from Florida State University so we'll be driving up to Tallahassee this Friday. We'll stop in Orlando and pick up Dallas so we are excited about the special event.

I know you are enjoying your family now that they are home from their trip. Stay strong and we love you!

Marylee (Dallas, Jenilee & Cheryl)
