Three years ago today, my very best friend left this world and arrived in God's presence. This is going to be my focus today - that Al is joyously praising his Father and that he is also doing all the things we know he loved here. This morning at 7:00 a boat passed by pulling a skier cutting up the glasslike water with deep curves and leaving an arc of water spraying behind him. This reminds me of Al. He loved to water ski and I think he would have been out there this morning, too.
So today, I am going to look for moments that I know Al would have loved here and believe that he is enjoying them even more from his heavenly viewpoint. I am going to try and live today with joy and laughter as he did and do something I know he loved.
I am going to rejoice that God placed Al and I together for 36 years (34 married) and blessed me with our incredible children and that they were so loved by their dad. I am going to rejoice in the gift of countless wonderful memories and smile often.
