Happy Anniversary, Ben The Titan

At the time of this writing it is September 24th.  Today is my 23rd wedding anniversary.  

I know that everyone out there reading this post can understand that this is a difficult week for me.  I miss Ben beyond measure every single day, but on our anniversary, well, that's one of the tougher ones.

I wrote an anniversary letter to Ben on my personal blog. It was my intent to copy that letter into this blog because I simply do not have the energy to write again this week.  I'm worn out.  I know you get it.

As often tends to happen when one is exhausted, worn out, missing their husband and generally frustrated beyond belief, more things go wrong.  This time was no exception.  It turns out that my idea was not as simple as I imagined it would be.  I was not able to copy my post as I wrote it because the video clips wouldn't upload properly.  I found that frustratingly annoying and was  at the point where I felt like grabbing this computer and tossing it straight out the window.  I want to show off my marriage to the world this week.  I don't want to have to cut out those video clips, you know?

In an effort to save my computer and possibly my sanity (at least what is left of it) I came up with an alternate solution.  I decided to simply provide the link to the post I wrote on my personal blog and to ask you to take just a moment to click on it and read my letter to Ben. Simple, right?  Good idea?  Well, I thought so, until I tried it.  I tried to provide the link but it seemed to not want to work properly either.  Can you feel my frustration here?!

So, I have provided the address to that specific blog post below.  If the link ends up working, that will be fantastic and I hope you will click on it and take a moment to read it in Ben's memory.  But, if the link doesn't work properly, I hope that you will copy and paste it and still take a moment to read my words.  I want to share my love for Ben, with you.

This is the second anniversary that I have celebrated endured without him.  I miss him terribly.

    Anniversaries are the worst because we’re the only ones on earth who have those memories. Thanks for sharing yours with us. What a beautiful tribute!

    Thanks for that, Joseph. And thanks for the idea of a Christmas wreath. I like that. I’m going to do that.

    I’m with you Wendy, I totally understand and get it. Holidays, Anniversary’s and Birthdays are the hardest to endure. I just try to plan ahead for those days with certain plans that will keep me busy and to honor her, example, November 29th is her Birthday. I have already made my plans to take off a half a day of work to visit the cemetery. I will take a Christmas wreath and hang it by her burial site. She loved Christmas and I know she would love the gesture. Those are the types of things that get me by. I know when I’m there it’s very somber but afterwards I actually feel good and happy because I know that she would of been happy. I’m hoping you are finding more peace as each day goes by. I wish you the best on trying to endure these type of days. Just know there are many of us out here who know what you are going through and know that we are with you.
