I am the type of person that remembers birthdays of people that I have known in my business and personal life and for some, I still send out greetings to them. It is really easy for the ones that I have Internet access and email addresses. And for those that I don’t have current information, it seems just a glance at my perpetual calendar that has followed me all of these years from house to job and back again will trigger a memory and occasion. Silently, I wish them well, wherever they might be.
Some of my friends and family members are amazed at how I can just recite each ones date and age (for those who have told me honestly). I realize that I love remembering others with fond thoughts.
As I gazed at my calendar this morning, I recalled sadly that the guy that stole my heart fifty plus years ago passed in 2004. We had had, some great times back then dating, falling in love-getting married-having three sons and then one day- “poof just like that, it was over.”
Somehow, I never did forget his birthday July 2 or the date we wed Nov 13 and so I can’t forget the day he died.
After all, he was the guy that stole my heart before I knew what was happening.
And then, it was too late!
