REST

This is part of my 31 Day Five Minute Free Writes challenge within a challenge. I will be linking up with 31 Day Challenge at The
Nester's as well as at Heading Home. For a list of all my letters you can go here.


Dearest Richard:

First of all, I miss you. I will for the rest of my life. Since the moment that you left I was sure that missing you was going to last a very long time. 

Today I am writing about rest....there are many ways I remember you when I hear the word...rest. But the one that always brings a smile to my face is when you would fall sound asleep (loud snoring type sleep) during a TV show or while we were reading at night.When I nudged you awake you always said, "I was just resting my eyes." Yeah, right! You had a mighty loud way of resting, my love.

But mostly I think of what the rest of my time here on earth will be like without you. I don't plan to wallow in my grief forever. But I will miss you forever...and if loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right. I think I remember a song like that. Don't you?

And now I think I will rest while I miss you for the rest of the day.

Loving you forever,

Paula

  1. Hee-hee ... my hubby says the same thing, 'just resting.' I guess that's a man thing?
    Isn't it fun to occasionally express yourself in song lyrics?

    1. Yes I think I should do a whole post on song lyrics. So many songs 'speak' to me

    1. It was restful...for the most part! Rainy and dreary and very much conducive to napping

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
