I Thought Of You Today
By tonyaw on January 09, 2012
I thought of you today as I cut up sheets of my son's school photos and made piles for family members. There should be a pile for you.
I thought of you today when the construction and remodeling company called me this afternoon to give me an update on the work being done to your house, the house my sister and I now own.
I thought of you today when an old colleague of yours commented on something I uploaded on Facebook.
I thought of you today while I drove to the grocery store because the song, What a Fool Believes came on the radio. I could almost hear Daddy singing along completely off key.
I thought of you today as I sat back and quietly watched my son playing, busy moving his trains up and down the tracks on his train table and wished more than ever that you could be there with me watching quietly too.
I thought of you today when I caught the scent of a woman in line in front of me at Starbucks because she smelled just like you. I didn't even have to ask her what perfume she was wearing.
I thought of you today as I carefully packed away Christmas decorations, proud of myself for making it through another holiday without you.
I thought of you today after I received a text message from my sister about an epiphany she had and I wondered if you were here, would she had shared it with me at all.
I thought of you today when I lifted Lucas up to see a wedding photo on the wall and he pointed out, without hesitation, his Grandpa Adams.
I thought of you today, but that was nothing new.
