Oh, Was That Today?

Today I had a rather unintentional victory.

I completely forgot that today is, or was, or would have been, my wedding anniversary.

I completely forgot, in spite of an encouraging card left on my desk this morning (“Yes, today is a difficult day,” I thought. “It’s Monday, and I’m exhausted from moving, and it’s the first day of the semester… but it’s surely not so bad I need a card!”)

In fact, if it weren’t for a well-intentioned phone call from a family member this evening, I might have gotten all the way to tomorrow without even realizing that today was… today.

Just two months after getting my heart broken, I forgot my wedding anniversary. I think that means I’m doing pretty good.

These were our wedding candles. Yes, I have kept them all these years. Mostly because I think they’re beautiful. But I have not lit them since the wedding… until today. #closure

  1. I’m in love with this piece dear. It’s a pleasure to meet a woman who is empowered after such trauma, I’ve been there. Give yourself a hug girl, because you are beautiful and strong!

  2. Yes, I think you are doing very well! Those candles are beautiful and you can keep whatever is beautiful in memory also. Congrats on a day well done. Keep moving on, keep moving forward…. Hugs, Auntie Maddy
