Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)I'm grateful for the 80 years my family had with my uncle, who passed today from a long history of COPD and other complications. He was a faulted individual, to be sure (as we all are), but loving in his gruff, over the top way and hard working. He had carved out his own slice of life, which he shared freely with his close circle. He may not have touched the world broadly, but what he touched he touched deeply.
Sat Nam! (Literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)I had a moment yesterday, right in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner, of all things, where I suddenly missed my late father. I don't know if it was the holiday or the food or the candlelight or the background music, but I just burst into tears. Couldn't speak, couldn't even catch my breath. My poor husband - he had no idea what was going on, but got right up to comfort me.
My dad's been gone for more than 20 years now, but I am so grateful that the occasional memory of him is still that strong.
I am grateful I found a spouse who, though brilliant in every other way, is so incredibly stupid that even after more than two decades she hasn't figured out that she could do way, way, waaaaaay better than me.I am grateful I found a spouse with a wonderful sense of humor.
My ex often said at my jokes, “Why must you be so weird?”he never got my jokes
Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)I’m eternally grateful that I found someone who laughs with me, not at me.
