Blessings 1/15

Count your blessings.

I say that often and I have always said it often. I have always had so many things to be grateful for.

I used to look at my family with tears of joy in my eyes. Blessed. I still do that, only 3 of us now.

I believe in love for a lifetime. Blessed. I know we had almost 40 years together and that is a lifetime.

I know that family is a beautiful thing. Blessed. My family, all my family, have been my saving grace over the last few weeks.

And friends are a gift. Blessed. All of you who have reached out to the Arbo family-cards, flowers, texts, emails, meals, visits or attendance at a most epic Arbo memorial day. We are so thankful that you are in our lives.

This is my last entry for a while. This blog was intended as a communication tool. It ended up being my nightly sanctuary. I said what I said to reflect on the day. It gave me strength to continue.

I’m home alone for the first time since Arb died. I am sad and lonely and yet I know I am blessed. Arb is at peace and we will find peace and joy ahead. We have this massive collective memory and hope and faith that propel us forward! Count your blessings!
