271 days and …

August 24 2016

… almost 9 months … and that is almost a year.  It just makes no sense to me.  Time has stood still and yet the days and weeks have flown by.  And I am trying to smile.  I really am.

A song comes on the radio …

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. And when it’s cold outside,
I’ve got the month of May

and for a moment I feel a happy feeling and my mind travels back to our 23 years as part of the Tucson soccer community and all of our family fun days.  You always had the DJ play that song just for me.  And when my mind turns to the present,  the happy turns into melancholy and my vision clouds with tears.   I wonder if that will ever change.  That being said, I am not sure I even want it to.

Jeffry signed Max and Abby up for soccer today.  I know you would love that.  I also know that you would be at every game, interfering with Jeffry and Kerri’s coaching.

Somehow, I don’t think they would mind.
