Just what I needed

Today was just one of those hard days. Yes I still have them… were I miss Richard to the core of my soul. 

So this morning through a lot of snotty tears 
I said to the Lord.
“Lord I just need something….I don’t even know what I need… I just need you to help me through this wave of pain.”
Have you ever had those kinds of prayers?  Were you don’t even know what to ask for but you know you need God to just do something!

Well after that beautiful time with the Lord….not!  (Poor God I don’t know how he puts up with me. lol) I heading out to get some running done and I came across this sign.

That now hangs on the wall at the foot of my bed.
Now anyone who knows me or has read this blog for the last year knows "I love you to the moon and back" is very dear to me.
Richard bought me this silly little pop up children’s book and read it to me on a date one night. And that was a line in the book.

So from that day on it became ours.
But what made this sign so much more was the last line
A true love story never ends.

Yes Lord that’s just want I needed.  Thank you for interpreting my snotty tears :)

Kiss my Richard for me and tell him I love him to the moon and back!


  1. Oh Anna, you should have put a Tissue Alert at the beginning of your post today. My heart cried along with yours.

    To me, finding that BEAUTIFUL sign was HIS way of saying that true love never dies!


    1. That's just how I saw it Kim. Sometimes the hardest part of losing your spouse is the feeling of not feeling complete any longer. I want to be able to get that all the time from my relationship with the Lord but some days it is hard. Even the word says it is not good for man to be alone. So when he reminds me our love is still as real as ever it helps me have that feeling of completeness back I had when Richard was alive. :)
