By the Numbers

Nine- the day we were married, the day we celebrated in small ways for the
Twenty six- years we had before
Twenty one- the day he died, leaving behind this life to me and
Three- our children for
Fourteen- years now… We were
Two- who became

    Very touching… thank you for sharing. I find it comforting that you still feel such strong love after 14 years of being without him. It’s only been 5 months for me, but I fear “forgetting” or losing these feelings with time. Thank you 🙂

    These numbers speak of the life you had together and alone. So much emotion in so few words.

    I can feel it. Time, longing, love, all of them.

    I could feel your melancholy in your voice. I like how you connected numbers to the milestones in your life that you created with your husband. When my son passed away I put significance when I would see certain numbers. I believe they have some meaning we just need to look closely to discover what.
