I am just talking..and probably with a little "feeling" sorry for myself??? My Mom sent out a mass email to all my family last weekend. She mentioned how my Son and I were featured in a magazine article published by TRNC (Neurological Center) in Tri-Cities, WA. So, being curious I went and looked at it. The article was well written and had photos of Brennen and I. Although, I clicked out of the article and noticed a video. There was an older lady and of course the play icon there. I wanted to see what the testimonials were for the TRNC so I started to watch it. As I was fast forwarding..there was a picture that was apart of the video. A lady sitting on a bench either in a park or just in a garden. I stopped actually to see where that picture was taken from..and the voice I remembered. I instantly started to cry. It was my Dad. Then they showed an interview with my parents. I couldn't believe how that really struck a nerve with me. Justin sat there with me and we finished the videos just crying. He never had the chance to meet my Dad. So, I felt out of sorts all day. My friend Kristi and I were planning a "girls" afternoon. I was very tempted to cancel the afternoon. Although, at Justin's persistant request I didn't. I am glad I didn't..since really feeling sorry for myself isn't a typical trait of mine. I did realize one thing..that of all the "first's" without my Dad..his bday was the hardest for me. The video was filmed last year in January, they went on a cruise to Mexico in February..and in May he was gone. It just seems so strange. The anniversary of his passing is fast approaching. I am considering getting a plane ticket for my Mom to come visit for the weekend. Thinking of doing a little shopping and hanging out in the City. It would do us both good. That is on the heals of going to Disney World too. I guess we will see...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
