Six Again

The photo above was the trunk of my van about three and a half hours ago.  I remember when Richard emailed me years ago from S.Korea and informed me of this new bag he had purchased and gotten all "suped up" to his liking.  Oh this bag!!  What I would do to still have it in my trunk right now.  What I would do to be able to sit on the couch tonight and watch one of the many old war movies Richard dvr'd for us even though he knew he'd not be here to watch them.

It is just the six of us here at 57 again.

I have no words.  Only lumps in my throat and tears in my eyes.  Yes, it's tough being a single momma to five girls, but honestly, I just miss sharing life with my best friend.  I'm me when Richard's gone, but I'm not the best me.  And I'm certainly not all me.

Tomorrow will be better, but tonight is going to be hard.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  Philippians 4.13


  1. You are in my prayers. I am so sorry that it is so hard.

  2. God Bless YOUR family!
