Letters to Tuvia #230: T & Son (5-20-16)

Evening T,

Tomorrow will be a busy day for me and that’s good because it’s  our 9 month maker of separation- 9 months without you.   Seems so long, doesn’t it?  9 months, and I’m still standing.

It was a quiet day today after a full day filled with promise.  Maybe it’s good to have this new balance- one day intense, the next less…

Early morning for exercise with Anthony and then nutrition with Jenn all at the same gym for one stop shopping…. and then, inspired by new eating suggestions I headed for new foods at the nutritional supermaket.  Filled with bags and packages from three different supermarkets, I was back home on the porch, on the couch, reading, napping, watching a bit of news…prepping for dinner with Ami…

Ami… your gift that keeps on giving.  The pictures above don’t begin to capture the two of you.  I remember my first meeting with Ami when he was still hopeful about Heidi, freshly engaged.  How his life moved in such a very different direciton, but we didn’t know that then, as I polised off a waffle at the diner on Rt. 4, no longer there, but  we are still here…

Tonight Ami was here to see the apartment with all its changes and he was pleased.  I had a few things I needed his help with, then I brought my dinner to the table and we enjoyed our conversation even though I was sure he would not have the energy to undergo my interview for your video.

Looks like we have a good excuse to get together again… 

Thank you Tuvia. Ami and I will always keep you alive and with us…

We have that hole that will never be filled and together it’s not quite so empty…

Miss you here with us,

Bonnie S.
