Memorable Wedding Day Moment

Grief is different for each person. We all grieve differently. For some, talking about their lost loved ones is too painful. For others, they find comfort in reliving memories and talking about their loved ones. Whatever your thoughts and feelings are about grief, it is unique to you.
As I journey through grief, I do find joy in recalling memories. Today, April 23, would be our 38th wedding anniversary. I want to share a memorable moment from our wedding day. A common tradition at wedding receptions is that the guests will begin tapping their glasses, and the newly wedded couple is supposed to kiss. Paul and I decided beforehand that we would mix it up a little and shake hands rather than kiss. Our guests started laughing and clapping. We surely did take them by surprise. Here is a photo from that moment:

This the 5th year without Paul here to celebrate. We always made sure to go on a date night on our wedding anniversary. Sometimes, in our earlier years of marriage, we would take our young children with us on our date night.
I'm thankful for my life with Paul, and I will always miss him. Having little sprinkles of memories along the way brings me joy.
How about you? Would you like to share a memory of your loved one? Feel free to comment below; I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for visiting my small, humble blog.

With love,
