Letters to Tuvia #270: Embrace (7-19-16)


You are with me.  I take you with me.  I carry heart no matter where I go.

Yesterday, as I left New Platz, I plugged in my iPod and clicked to my Embrace playlist.Every romantic song that I loved, that you loved, that we loved is right there, created last October for my first car rides without you.  I let myself grieve and ache for you until Sandie, my therapist recommended that maybe it would be better if I moved away from my music and download some podcasts from NPR.

Good idea!

Yesterday I was ready to reclaim the music we loved and start singing again.

Yes, my love I’m taking back my joy and I’m taking you with me.

Miss you T


One thought

  1. Sorry I missed yesterday, glad it was a nice one with your writing work, and now today, I see that it’s okay to take Tuvia & the special music along, embrace it and while sad, it’s okay. The RNC, plus a few other things, is taking time, trying to find ways to make things different. Whew! Happy Wednesday, Bonnie!
