Before February ends
It's the month for love.
Besides everything, what did I love about you?
to hold your hand,
our hikes in the hills,
getting compliments from you about the breakfasts I cooked for you,
the way you could fix anything,
checking the back of your hair making sure you covered your cowlick &
how you adored Will and chanted "Grandpa's Boy" over and over again when you held him.
I loved it when we......
made Home Depot runs together,
sat by the fire in the evening with a glass of wine,
went to lots and lots of baseball games,
traveled together to places all over the country &
realized at the same moments how blessed we were by our children!
I loved you when you........
complained that nothing was accomplished on your to do list, you only added things,
took care of me when I was sick,
answered the phone with "Rooney Here!",
forgot things and blamed it on Old Timers disease &
fell asleep early almost every night.
I even loved it when you........
blamed the cleaning ladies when you couldn't find something,
said I was dumb for watching reality TV,
got aggravated because you couldn't reach me on my cell phone,
woke me up watching TV in the middle of the night because you couldn't sleep,
talked to yourself with hand gestures &
came back into the house time after time on your way to work forgetting one thing or another.
I loved your.......
corny jokes &
positive outlook on life.
I miss you terribly!
