Yesterday was Mark's 60th birthday. Those days are bittersweet for me. While I certainly celebrate his birth and existence, I miss his presence. Of course, I'm grateful for the 37 years we shared, yet I crave his company. At times like this I need to be certain that I stay physically and mentally busy. Not only do I accomplish things, staying occupied helps to ease through the tougher days. In the words he wrote to have read at his memorial service, Mark said, "Mary Kay, I love you now and forever." That expresses how I feel about him as well.
Logan spent Saturday night at my house, and we had a lot of fun. He is always a big help in caring for the dogs and making certain they are fed and loved. While we were running errands, we stopped at Zinger's Hardware. I bought a Radio Flyer scooter that Logan rode at the store and, after we got it home, all over the house and front driveway. The scooter will remain at my place so all of the boys can enjoy it. Doesn't that sound funny? All of the boys? I have 3 grandsons, wow! Well, of course, Jonah is still in incubation, but he will be here in June. Life is wonderful, isn't it?
There are only two ways to live your life. One as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
