The Walk

This is the book I am reading.  I love to read.  I don't take the time everyday, but when I do, I forget to cook, or get dressed, or do the daily things I should do.

But this book is short.  It has chapters.  The chapters make it easy to stop when you should stop and get something accomplished for the day.

I have been reading at night time, when I get in bed, when the house is quiet, when I am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open.  I read a few chapters, go to sleep, and repeat the following night.

But today, I am going to make myself a Diet Coke with ice in a very tall glass.  I am going to sit in my favorite chair.  I am going to read all morning and finish this book.  I am loving it, and I want to finish it.

It pulls at my heart strings.  It makes me think about my life.  It makes me take notice of each little everyday thing that I am so grateful for.  I makes me miss my darling husband so much my heart hurts.  He is my life.  He is my ticket to the Celestial Kingdom.  I can't get there without him.  I love him more than words can say.  He is my best friend.  He is my everything.  And I ache to be with him again.  Everyday.  To feel him next to me when I fall asleep. To see his eyes.  To hear his voice.  To know he is near.  Just to be able to reach out and touch him.  I miss being held by him.  To have his arms around me.  To kiss him.

I guess I will go read now.  Since my heartaches for my darling. 

Reading helps me get lost in time.  And I need the time to go by faster right now.  I need my darling husband to be with me.  I am not myself when I am without him.

Read "The Walk".  It is good.
