September 23 | Memories
Its hard to believe that it has been three years. I can still remember getting the call, and even now when I think about it, it doesnt seem real. Maybe I just keep hoping that its not real. There are so many things that remind me of Melissa, I dont know why some things remind me of her but, they do. There are a lot of times I go through the dinner line when Im on the Slope, I keep passing up things that dont look very good, I get to the end of the line and I didnt get much on my plate except for some bread or a roll or two. When that happens I always have to laugh to my self and think of her. There are so many things that I wish I had done differently in my life, like being closer to her and the rest of my family. Well I cant change the past, but with Gods help I can change the future. I miss her so very much.
September 23 | Bridges
Silly superstitions: We always used to hold our breath and pick up our feet when we went over a bridge. Something about hold your breath so you don't drown and pick up your feet so they dont get wet or the bridge will crumble at the exact moment your vehicle is halfway across and you will die...er something. This one trip to Anchorage in the Rodeo before she fixed her stereo, everytime we hit a bridge the cd would skip just long enough to get all the way across, so we said the car was holding its breath too. I still, to this day, do it everytime I cross a bridge; how silly of me.
September 22 | Party On
Melissa, I love that I've come to see bits of life through your eyes. I love that when I see a road cone I think devious thoughts. I love that I've learned to look for ways to turn a boring experience into an adventure. I love the many ways you've impacted my life.
September 21 | September
Here it is September again and it has been a very long month full of thoughts and memories. It doesn't seem possible that it's been three years since our Melissa went to Heaven. This month brings a lot of items to mind to remind us of her and the way she did things. We sure do miss her. This month, also, brought another motorcycle accident into our family, although not as serious. I don't know what it is about fall, but bad things seem to happen. I have nothing against motorcycles - a lot of family members own them - they just hold bad memories for me.
Melissa we love you dearly and miss you - a lot.
