Today is the first official day of moving on. All the big preparations are over. All the guests have gone home. Dennis is back to work. Today we officially begin finding our new normal.
I've had a good morning so far. As I had my coffee and morning quiet time with God, I wrote in my journal about new beginnings. God is giving me such a sense of peace and hope for the days ahead. Amazing! Who would have thought that I could weather this with such a positive outlook! It's God through and through!
Her absence is deeply felt, and oh, how she's missed, but there's also a soft and gentle sweetness of her kiss upon our lives that is indescribable.
Life goes on, and life is good. The most Jeanette-honoring thing we can do is live our lives and live it well. Be more alive than we've ever been. Enjoy life more than we ever have. Get more out of life than we ever have. Look with eyes focused forward, not behind. Cherish the memories, but embrace life.
