I think I might be perfectly happy falling asleep and not waking up until the day before graduation. (Providing of course that my clone made sure to take care of all the requirements needed for said occasion, lol.)
#590 Someone who genuinely understands that I do not want to grow up.
Two lives, yours is yours and mine is mine. Just living them together.
Seriously? That’s called being roommates… not being married. Whatever happened to the whole “two become one” thing? Sure you still have some separate interests and things you do by yourself, but the whole “yours is yours” and “mine is mine” attitude just won’t cut it. Once you mix Mr. Peanut Butter and Ms. Jelly, their lives become one whole new entity, lol. :)
A mom that I have babysat for on occasion posted on her Facebook that today would have been her husband’s birthday. He was killed almost 5 years ago while working on road construction. She was pregnant with their third child at the time. I’m amazed by the strength she shows even though she obviously still misses him terribly.
The 76 year old woman who was killed in the Tucson shooting while her husband, who survived, tried to shield her. Also, the 76 year old man who was killed while shielding his wife at the Tucson shooting. His wife survived.
These things simply break my heart. It just kills me. I can’t even imagine the pain and grief of losing your spouse, whether young or old.
Every movie I’ve ever watched (Up and P.S. I Love You, this means you!)or story I’ve ever read where a husband, wife, fiance, etc. dies; I completely break down (even more so than I do at most other things, lol).
These things just break my heart. I thank God for his continued blessings in my life and protection of my husband; because I don’t know if I could ever come back from a loss like that.

(Slightly crude analogy, perhaps, but the meaning behind it is so true and can be applied to many areas of life.)
