The last time I wrote about my wedding anniversary, I made the announcement on this blog that my beloved husband had died.
It's been three years, and I've survived and put together some semblance of life. He was taken from me far too soon, but I've mostly accepted that the summer of 2016 was his time. The thing about this kind of grief is that it always hurts. It's not something you get over. It's something you live with. Or not.
Even so, a world without Stanley still feels sudden and verging on unbearable. Is it worth living in such a world? It's exhausting to have to answer that every morning before I get out of bed.
Look, my love. Look at those two starry-eyed kids. That was us!
