Love has no age, no limit; and no death ~ John Galsworthy
where TLO and I had dinner last year. No sure how I was going to react once I arrived at the scene to start of my journey, I took my tablet along and sat out on the beach as I knew my friend, Denise Brown was hosting a 36 hour chat on her wonderful website, Caregiving.com for Caregivers who might need an extra support over the holidays. While it took me a few minutes to log-on from my tablet, I was happy to find R.M. as the guest host. Like me, R.M. has experienced the loss of her husband; we had a great conversation which lasted close to 45 minutes: R.M.’s conversation and comfort was just what I needed to meander down the road! (By the way, if you have not visited Caregiving.com or Aftergiving.com, you’ll find a great supportive community there, I suggest you visit both website by clicking the hyperlink above!)
With Christmas Carol’s playing on the satellite radio, I headed south on Ocean Drive as so many wonderful, and happy memories filled my time on the road. Of course I missed his physical presence in the car, that gentle caress of his hand on mine. Heck, I even missed his opinion, or two! Seeing those beautiful lights on Ocean Drive reminded me how memories of love last a lifetime. Then it hit me…Death does not change love! Sure, I may not remember something as mundane as how the Christmas lights were displayed in front of these homes in previous years, but I do remember how special our drives up and down Ocean Drive were to us was because our drives were apart of the love we shared together.
that I learned on my on Christmas Eve. When in the midst of healing and grieving, sometimes we need a trip down memory lane to help create our Healing Ties.
