“I’m leaving on a jet plane.

Don’t know when I’ll be back again…”

I find myself humming a little John Denver tonight. Sitting on the beach porch. Stargazing and watching the planes cross the dark night sky.

It was just three short years ago that we sat around the kitchen table here, eating dinner and listening to familiar tunes. John Denver included. A favorite of my in-“loves” ❤️

It’s hard to fathom that we said goodbye to our loved ones over the past year. As I watched planes disappear from my sight tonight, I couldn’t help but think of our journey with their dementia. We grieved a slow loss.

I miss them every day. Tomorrow we will remember what would have been their 51st wedding anniversary.

Someday we will be reunited in heaven as a family of faith.

“Tell me that you’ll wait for me. Hold me like you’ll never let me go…”

Until then.

~your faithful daughter-in-love ❤️
