I'm almost at the one year mark, that point in time when everyone else has moved on and very few people are probably aware that it is less than one month to mark one year of his passing. Anyway one of my friends told me yesterday, that she didn't know what I was going to do for the one year mark, if I was going to try to work through it, take it off, spend it w/family or just me and the dog, but she had cleared her calendar as a just in case and was not looking for me to make plans or tell her what I was going to do, she just wanted me to know that she was there for me and available even if at the last minute. Her kindness has meant so much that it has been with me all day. We all talk here about how fast everyone else moves on back to their lives, I think it made me even more touched by her thoughtfulness. I do think I will acknowledge the day with a trip to the ocean, it has always been my go to place. When we talked about some day moving away from the coast after retirement, he always used to say as long as we were near the ocean, he could never move me away from being further than 2 hours away. I used to say no, not true, but know I realize he was right, I don't need to go to the beach just see the ocean even if it's just driving by it on the way to see my mother - as long it is still there, I know life still goes on. I just want to make sure i have firm plans - I don't want to waste the day and I will invite her to go with me
