Grief & Loss,  Love

The Hug

Today is the 6th anniversary of the day my late husband Dan’s life was taken by prostate cancer. He has now been gone longer than we were married. I knew this day was coming as time relentlessly marches on, but it doesn’t sit well with me.

❤️

We had to go through so much to be together and when we were together we went through so much. It was worth everything.

❤️

Our last full-on hug, like this hug, was in the ICU with Dan’s kids standing on either side of him to support him so we could put our arms around each other. I am so grateful for that moment, it’s indescribable.

❤️

More than anything, over these past six years, I have longed to feel his arms around me again.

❤️

But yet, they always are.

❤️
